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.

Classic Alder Body

The Fender Standard Stratocaster features a classic alder body favoured by Fender for over 50 years. This classic design produces a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity, allowing for a distinctive sound only found in the Fender alder body. This distinctiveness of sound makes the Standard Stratocaster favourable for a reason. Its balanced response and slight upper middle definition has been favoured by the players of rock and blues for decades, proving the alder body really has stood the test of time. Its lightweight design and ease of playing means the alder body can keep producing its distinctive sound over and over again throughout the entirety of those long set lists without straining your shoulder.

Pau Ferro Fingerboard

The Pau Ferro fingerboard, offers a smooth yet rigid support for your playing. The 21 fret medium jumbo size fingerboard, shaped to the narrow "C" profile, means both beginners and seasoned pros will appreciate the ease this shape allows when it comes to stretching to those full bright chords. The fingerboard radius is the customary 9.5 inch radius, providing the smooth, complementary shape we've all come to know and love in the Stratocaster.

Pickups and Electronics

The three standard single-coil Strat pickups are fitted into the neck, middle, and bridge positions, and the 5-position pickup selector allows you to control the selection of these pickups. You can also utilise the tone controls for the neck and middle pickups, and a master volume pot for ramping up the volume. This setup although simple and easy to use, masks the complex range of tonal options available to the guitarist. Whatever your style, the Standard Strat enables you to access the tone you need, when you need it most, without the complexity of other guitars.

Around the pickups and control knobs, the pickguard protects the finish of the guitar, with the electronics being shielded to reduce unwanted low-level background noise. If you play high-gain music such as grunge, rock, metal, or punk, you can be certain that the noise generated by the pickups will be held at an absolute minimum throughout your playing, providing the best quality sound without interrupting background noise.
