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.

Wilkinson Bar Pickups

Equipped on the Vintage VJ74 is a set of Wilkinson’s bar pickups, delivering crisp, clean tones with a wide sonic palate to suit a variety of playing styles. These pickups deliver a performance and tonal capabilities worthy of a high-end bass, with clean note definition and an excellent dynamic range ideal for anything you throw at it. Also quipped with independent volume controls and master tone, the Vintage Icon bass deliver a wide range of stunning soundscapes suitable for any setting.

High-Quality Construction, Comfortable Performance

Along with its stunning vintage tones, the VJ74 is crafted with a classic design, offering players stunning tonal capabilities and an incredibly comfortable performance. Its body is constructed from lightweight Eastern poplar, delivering a beautifully broad dynamic range ideal for a wide variety of playing styles. Combined with a hard maple neck and fingerboard, the Vintage VJ74 Bass produces sweet tones with plenty of brightness and volume to create punchy mids, thick lows, and a sparkling high-end. The combination of the body’s light weight and the smooth feel of the maple ensure players receive an incredibly comfortable playing experience. To create that iconic look of an instrument that's seen decades of playing, the Vintage VJ74 is coated with a distressed black finish and worn lacquer to give it that worn in appearance.

Excellent String Stability

The heart of a good bass sound lies with the string anchoring, and the addition of an adjustable bridge, graphite nut, and Wilkinson machine heads make sure that's the way it stays. The VJ74's bridge features a face mounted and fully adjustable design, with the rear loaded strings passing over the chunky bridge saddles for maximum bottom end tone. The Wilkinson WJBL200 machine heads provide an incredibly smooth action for quick and easy tunings, while the elephant ear style tuning keys add to the VJ74 Icon’s classic appearance.
