6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 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.

The Artcore Series

The Ibanez AM53 comes from the Artcore series of guitars; a range of hollow instruments designed to span the genres from early jazz through to blues and rock. The AM53 features a classic semi-hollow design which was originally produced to provide the tonal benefits of a hollow body guitar, but with the feedback-resistance and sustain of a solid body. Here you have a guitar which can cover a wide range of styles and offer you a comfortable playing experience.

Quality Tonewoods

The Ibanez AM53 features a semi-hollow body crafted from bright-sounding sapele. This creates a bright and open tone, with plenty of sustain and resonance. The mahogany neck complements the body with warmth and sustain, whilst the rosewood fingerboard adds to the final articulation of each note. This is a lively instrument which will respond very well to playing dynamics.

Comfortable Playability

The AM53 is coated in a flat, satin-like finish, which has the effect of feeling very tactile and soft in the hands whilst assisting with sustain and resonance as it doesn't coat the tonewoods as much as traditional lacquer does. When combined with the semi-hollow design, the result is a guitar which feels 'alive' in your hands. Elsewhere, the double cutaway ensures easy high fret access for soloing and high chords, whilst the modern 12" radius and 24.7" scale length allows for easier string bends and vibrato making this is an ideal instrument for wailing blues solos.

Dual Humbucking Pickups

The AM53 Artcore includes Infinity R pickups which feature a warm, balanced articulation and excellent response. With the 3-way coil selector and the volume/tone control setup, you'll find the versatility to be able to tackle many different genres, as this style of guitar has done in the past. Blues, rock, country, soul; whatever your style, you'll find some lovely usable tones in the AM53.

About Ibanez

Over the past 30 years, Ibanez Guitars have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for electric guitar players pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980s that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe, Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
