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.

Details
The Rickenbacker 1993 PLUS 12 String Electric Guitar in a stunning MapleGlo finish is the result of Pete Townshend's request to Rickenbacker to make some changes to his cherished Model 1993. With an enhanced 3.1mm wider neck, Caribbean rosewood fretboard, and a sturdy two-piece neck design, the Rickenbacker 1993 Plus was born. A round heel is also a new feature on this guitar to achieve greater comfort.

Original Rickenbacker Design With Modern Enhancements

The Rickenbacker 1993 Plus with its classic 12 string design comes complete with three vintage reissue Toaster Top pickups for that signature Rickenbacker sound. Also featured is stereo output, a traditional trapeze tailpiece, classic Rickenbacker knobs, and the vintage style F-hole. The body is double bound, and the neck inlays shine with a beautiful pearlescence. The full rich Rickenbacker 1993 tone is abundant with this guitar, helped by traditional X-bracing. The evolution of Rickenbacker 12 strings really shine from the beautiful chorus characteristics of the 1993 Plus.

Maple Body Delivers Classic Rickenbacker Tone

The Rickenbacker 1993 Plus has been beautifully crafted from maple which has been fashioned into a distinctive double cutaway design. The 1993's maple semi-hollow body produces a rich and resonant tone with plenty of bite. The choice of a semi-hollow body and its unique double-cutaway shape keeps the guitar lightweight and provides a beautifully intricate voicing, as well as full access to the higher frets. Its lightweight design also allows you to play for longer, making it an ideal choice for gigging musicians. Boasting a beautiful MapleGlo finish, the Rickenbacker 1993 Plus 12 String guitar is absolutely stunning.

Maple Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard

This MapleGlo Rickenbacker features a Rosewood fingerboard that's mounted to a maple neck for added stability as well as a stylish look. This rosewood fingerboard also helps keep the tone mellow and offers some sparkle to the highs, and also thickens up the lows. The set neck achieves an extraordinary amount of sustain. With its slim, sleek design and excellent low action, the guitar's neck produces a tight and warm tone with the maple offering a snappy attack with sizzling highs and firm lows.

Vintage Single Coil Toaster Top Pickups

Situated at the neck, middle and bridge, the Rickenbacker 1993 Plus features a set of three vintage single coil Toaster Top pickups to offer a classic and unmistakable Rickenbacker jangle. The neck pickup is warm and woolly with dark, bluesy overtones. The bridge pickups provides a clean tone with a sixties style jangle, with the middle being a tasteful mixture of the two.
