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.

Tanglewood TEQ-3BT Electronics

Including a TEQ-3BT preamp and electronic system the Discovery DBTSFCESBL can be connected to amps and P.A systems, perfect for live performance. The TEQ-3BT preamp incorporates a responsive and dynamic pickup and 3-band equalizer to fine tune and tweak the tone. Additionally the TEQ-3BT also has a built in tuner for precise and easy tuning.

Spruce & Linden Construction

The Tanglewood DBTSFCESBL features a stunning spruce top which yields crisp articulation and a broad dynamic range. Spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it generates a versatile sound and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive to fingerpicking. The wood itself is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright sparkling highs. Its brightly toned spruce top is paired with linden back and sides, which is also commonly known as basswood, and offers a unique fundamental with a hint of sweetness and a little bite and growl all of its own. Both tonewoods offer their own unique tonal character to the Tanglewood DBTSFCESBL, and will sound just as great when amplified for live performance.

Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the Discovery's neck provides durability and great resonance. Mahogany is used massively in the acoustic world, as the wood responds greatly to many different styles of play with ease, and offers a richly-resonant sound that accommodates fingerpicking to aggressive strumming equally well. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which has a bright tonal character and produces a sizzling-sparkle that really shines through when using fingerpicking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience and is sprinkled with white dot inlays for an elegant look.

Super Folk Body Shape

The Tanglewood DBTSFCESBL features Tanglewood's iconic super folk body shape, which not only provides an extremely comfortable play, but plays beautifully well within the folk genres and finger-styled play. The super folk was built with folk players in mind, and provides a soundboard that accommodates numerous different fingerpicking techniques with ease. Its nipped in waist and smaller body is ideal for beginners and those that are just hitting the studio and open mic nights, as well as smaller gigs, as its light weight body sits very comfortably on the knee for long periods of time.
