6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Alder Body

The Fender Custom Shop Postmodern HSS Stratocaster features a two-piece select alder body that produces a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity and body. Fender have used Alder as their tonewood of choice for electric guitars since the 1950's as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing. This lightweight alder body wears a Lush Closet Classic finish, simulating the look of a guitar that’s been on the road for years.

Neck & Fingerboard

As well as offering a lightweight body, this Postmodern Strat also features a quartersawn AA flame maple neck with a ’63 Strat “C”-shaped profile, for added authenticity and comfort. Designed for flexible playing, the 9.5"-12" compound radius AAA rosewood fingerboard is curved for easy chord playing near the nut, flattening out for playing smoking leads without fear of fretting out during bends.

HSS Pickup Configuration

The Fender Custom Shop Postmodern HSS Stratocaster offers a versatile performance with its HSS pickup configuration. Featuring a humbucking bridge pickup, along with two single coil pickups, players can achieve that classic Strat vibe and sound. In addition, dual 250k/500k volume pots ensure a smooth transition when switching between single-coil and humbucking pickups.

Real Bone Nut

The Fender Custom Shop HSS Strat also features a real bone nut, which maintains its classic appearance. The benefit of a real bone nut compared to modern materials is that bone offers an excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.

Player friendly with enhanced sonic and ergonomic features, the Postmodern series open the door to an even wider range of individual musical expression and creativity, with elegantly crafted Stratocaster and Telecaster models, and a special combination Precision/Jazz Bass models for today's player
