The Gibson Explorer is a type of electric guitar that made its debut in The Explorer offered a radical, "futuristic" body design, much like its siblings: the Flying V, which was released the same year, and the Moderne, which was designed in but not released until The Explorer was the final development of a prototype design that, years later, Gibson marketed under the name Futura.

The Explorer's initial run was unsuccessful, and the model was discontinued in In , Gibson began reissuing the Explorer after competitor Hamer Guitars had success selling similar designs. The Explorer became especially popular among the hard rock and heavy metal musicians of the s and s.

First Explorers[edit]

Gibson produced very few Explorers during the run of the original korina wood model. Because production records have been lost and shipping records are unclear, it is not known exactly how many were made, but the original run total has been estimated to be no more than [1]

After the first few guitars, the Explorer had a long drooping headstock with the tuners placed in a straight line on one side (referred sometimes as "banana" and "hockey-stick"). This headstock design was incorporated by Grover Jackson, founder of Jackson Guitars and other electric guitar makers such as Kramer 20 years later, giving rise to the "pointy-headstock era" of guitars. However, the very earliest Explorers made between and spring featured an unusual "split"-shaped head with the tuners placed in a standard 3+3 arrangement, carried over from the Explorer prototype (better known as the Futura).[citation needed]

The – korina Explorer is one of the most valuable production-model guitars on the market, ranked at #4 on the Top 25 published by Vintage Guitar, worth between $, and $, Only 22 were shipped in its first two years, 19 in and 3 in ; an unknown (small) number of leftover bodies were completed with nickel s hardware and sold in 38 examples are presently known to exist.[2]

Explorer variations[edit]

Year Commemorative Explorer (DSX50) with rounded edges

There have been several variants produced by Gibson. These include several smaller-bodied, more "user-friendly" versions such as the X-Plorer Studio; the Matthias Jabs-designed Explorer 90 (named so because it was 90% the body size of a regular Explorer), and the Explorer Pro, introduced in

In Gibson released a "Limited Edition" Explorer in mahogany with gold hardware.[3]

In Gibson introduced the E2 model (also known as the Explorer II), featuring a 5-piece walnut/maple laminated construction and a contoured body. This model was discontinued after ,[4] but was partially returned as the "Thunderhorse", a signature model for comedian/musician Brendon Small, which was heavily based on the E2.

From to Gibson produced the "Explorer II", not to be confused with the later E/2 Explorers. The distinction is that the Explorer-II/E-II has a straight edge body with cream binding. These E-II's are made with a mahogany back and figured/flamed maple tops in "burst" colors, namely "cherry-burst" and "Tobacco burst". They did not come in clear or solid colored finishes. Also, they have the TP6 tail-piece, gold hardware, and "velvet brick" or "dirty fingers" pickups, cream color body binding, with a black pickguard and 3 knobs in a row. The necks have ebony fretboards. Those items together distinguish an Explorer II from the later E/2.

For the E/2 Explorer, Gibson optioned them with various different parts. The biggest difference was the curved/contoured body. Some came with "dirty fingers" pickups where some are cream and black-colored (Zebra) or all black. Most had the standard stop-bar tailpiece, but some E/2's did come with a TP6 tailpiece. The E/2 was also offered in burst colors and clear finishes, whereas the E-II did not come in clear finishes.

Gibson also produced a range of Explorer models between and with high-output "dirty fingers" pickups, maple neck and body, and a bound figured maple top available in natural, cherry sunburst, or vintage (tobacco) sunburst finishes. These were alternately named E/2, Explorer CMT, or The Explorer.[5] They could be equipped from the factory with either a standard tune-o-matic bridge/stopbar tailpiece or a Kahler tremolo.

From to the standard Explorer's body wood varied between mahogany and alder. The neck wood would vary between maple and mahogany and the fretboard wood varied between Indian rosewood and ebony. Other additions to this model included rear-loaded pickup cavities, no pickguard, and control knobs arranged in a triangle pattern (rather than a straight line as on the original model).

In and Gibson produced the Explorer III, with three single-coil P pickups and an alder body, as well as the Designer Series Explorer (and Flying V), which had factory-painted graphics in geometric and "Artist Original" designs.

In Gibson introduced an Explorer in its "Gothic" line, which featured Gibson's guitars (including the Explorer, Flying V, SG, and Les Paul) in matte black finishes.

Several variants are also produced by Epiphone&#;&#; Gibson's lower-cost, non-US manufacturer. These include a model produced in korina wood and Epiphone's own "Goth" model, available with a stop-tail or Floyd Rose locking tremolo bridge. Epiphone also produced an Explorer Bass in ebony black and velvet natural finishes with two humbucking pickups and a 34"-scale fret dark rosewood fingerboard. The Explorer Bass employs a set-neck design rather than the bolted-neck construction used in the Epiphone version of the Gibson Thunderbird. (Gibson produced some 32"-scale Explorer basses in the s, including one model that featured a futuristic piezo pickup in place of the traditional pickups found on the other models)

In Gibson produced limited editions of Eric Clapton's modified Explorer, the Explorer Clapton Cut, featuring a shortened bass bout that allows more comfortable arm positioning and the Explorer Split Headstock, a faithful recreation of the original korina Explorer with the "forked" headstock found only on the very earliest examples..

In Gibson Guitars produced limited editions of Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Allen Collins's Gibson Explorer. The guitar is made of African limba wood and features an aged finish, Maestro vibrola, and classic humbucking pickups

In Gibson released two new versions of the guitar, the first of which was the "Year Commemorative Explorer". This version features a solid mahogany body with AA-grade maple top, and the body style is the so-called "new retro Explorer", which has rounded edges. The second is called the "Reverse Explorer" due to its inverted body style. The reverse model features a carbon fibre-like pickguard and inlays as well as a McCarty-era inspired headstock. Only a limited run of of each model were built for the Guitar of the Month feature. In the same year, Gibson also released the Robot Explorer, an Explorer version of the Gibson Robot Guitar together with a similar version of the Flying V featuring custom red metallic nitrocellulose finish, ebony fingerboard with white lining and trapezoid inlays, and lacking a pickguard. Production of this guitar was discontinued in [citation needed]

In the company released two new versions of the guitar, the first of which is the Tribal Explorer. It features a Kahler-style tremolo and tribal designs and lacks a pickguard. The final new model is the Holy Explorer, designed as a counterpart to the Holy V, with numerous notches cut through the body of the guitar.

After creating Matt Heafy of Trivium a white seven-string Explorer, Gibson released a statement that they would make a regular production version. It has many classic characteristics such as a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, scale length and a 12" radius while acquiring some more metal-oriented hardware and styling with the addition of active EMG pickups ( bridge & neck), and no fretmarkers on the fretboard.

Although thought to be a staple in the Gibson lineup, the Explorer was discontinued and brought back multiple times in the late s, along with the Flying V. In a limited edition th Anniversary model, with a special 12th-fret inlay and neck binding, was made available. In the Explorer was brought back into the standard lineup.

Other makers[edit]

Hamer Guitars created a tribute to the Explorer in called the Hamer "Standard". This model typically differed from the original Explorer in that it had no pickguard and a mahogany body with a highly figured maple top in a cherry sunburst finish, though custom finishes were also available. Gaining popularity with the hard rock musicians of the day, including Rick Nielsen, Hamer's success led the way for other copies and was partly responsible for prompting Gibson's own decision to reissue the Explorer.

Jackson Guitars (now a subsidiary of Fender) was sued by Gibson for their line of Kelly guitars, which are very similar to the Explorer. The Kelly was sleeker and lighter, with basically the same shape but with beveled edges.

High-end guitar company Alembic Inc produced the Exploiter bass guitars for the late John Entwistle of the Who. These basses had the body shape of the Explorer with either a cone- or V-shaped headstock. The Exploiter is different in that the edges are rounded over and the lower bout cuts more deeply into the body than an Explorer. After Entwistle's death, Alembic released the "Spyder" based on John's custom basses, with production limited to 50 guitars. Warwick also produces the "Stryker" basses, based on the custom Explorer-style basses.

Dean Guitars produced a John Entwistle Spyder Signature Bass in , limited to 25 US models and a low-cost Korean import series.

Ibanez introduced the Destroyer model in the s, with a korina-coloured Japanese Sen body that closely resembled the original Explorer. In about Ibanez changed the shape of the Destroyer body. Although the new Destroyer II model was still clearly inspired by Gibson's original Explorer design, the body lines were modified, most notably around the treble "horn" and the rear edge, and the headstock was changed to a slight variation of the traditional Ibanez headstock shape, no longer resembling Gibson's "hockey stick" shape.

Other guitars similar to the Explorer include the ESP EX[6]Dean Guitars' Z, Greco guitars' Explorer, Aria Pro II, Kramer's Condor, Peavey's Rotor series, Rondo Music's Douglas Halo and Agile Ghost,[7]Gordon-Smith's Explorer, Chapman's Ghost Fret, and the Cort Effector (an Explorer version with built-in effects, but no pickup toggle switch).

Gibson owns U.S. Trademark 2,, for the mark EXPLORER in connection with guitars. Gibson also owns U.S. Trademark 2,, for the Explorer's headstock design, and U.S. Trademark 2,, for the Explorer's body shape design. However, the enforceability of the latter two design trademarks is uncertain in light of Gibson's unsuccessful lawsuit against PRS Guitars for allegedly infringing Gibson's Les Paul shape. In the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ordered summary judgment against Gibson in that action, on the grounds that there was no evidence to support a finding of likelihood of confusion.[8]

Gibson Dethklok Thunderhorse ExplorerPublié le 30/11/11 à contenu en anglais(contenu en anglais)
The Gibson Explorer is definitely a unique looking guitar. It has almost a star shape that really lends itself to the hard rock and metal players. I don't think I've ever seen this guitar use by country player or anyone who plays a clean bluesy style guitar. This is the kind of guitar that is really aimed at someone who wants to play aggressively and in your face. I love the shape of this guitar and it's one of those iconic instruments that it stood the test of time.

SOUNDS


The tones of these guitars very similar to a Gibson Les Paul guitar or Gibson SG guitar. It features mahogany wood throughout the body and in the neck. It also has a Rosewood fretboard as well. The tone of this guitar is very warm and articulate and it also gives you a sense of a full sounding extremely aggressive thick saturated tone when you use a lot of distortion or overdrive. Quite surprisingly this guitar cleans up not pretty well comparatively to Gibson Les Paul guitar. Even though the shape of this guitar as a little bit more would it gives off a brighter and cleaner clean sound to my years in a Gibson Les Paul guitar. Overall this is a great sounding guitar and has a full warm tone.

OVERALL OPINION


You can find these guitars pretty easily but not quite as easily as a Gibson Les Paul. I seen these gopher right around $ all the way up to about $ new. They're cool guitars and if you really dig the body shape and this is right up your alley. If you're not into the body shape and you're probably pass on this and go straight to the Gibson Les Paul instrument.
La Gibson Explorer est certainement une guitare unique prospectifs. Il a presque une forme d'étoile qui se prête vraiment à la roche dure et les joueurs en métal. Je ne pense pas que j'ai jamais vu cette utilisation par le joueur de guitare pays ou toute personne qui joue sur une guitare bluesy style propre. C'est le genre de guitare qui vise réellement à quelqu'un qui veut jouer agressivement et de votre visage. J'aime la forme de cette guitare et c'est un de ces instruments emblématiques que l'épreuve du temps.

SONORITÉS

Les tons de ces guitares très semblable à une guitare Gibson Les Paul Gibson SG ou guitare. Il dispose en bois d'acajou à travers le corps et dans le cou. Il a également une touche en palissandre ainsi. Le ton de cette guitare est très chaleureux et articuler et il vous donne aussi un sens d'une pleine consonance ton extrêmement agressif saturées épaisses lorsque vous utilisez beaucoup de distorsion ou d'overdrive. Assez étonnamment cette guitare nettoie pas assez bien comparativement à la guitare Gibson Les Paul. Même si la forme de cette guitare un peu plus serait il donne un son plus brillant et plus propre propre pour mes années dans une guitare Gibson Les Paul. Globalement, c'est une guitare qui sonne et a un ton chaleureux.

AVIS GLOBAL

Vous pouvez trouver ces guitares assez facilement, mais pas aussi facilement qu'une Gibson Les Paul. J'ai vu ces droits gopher autour de $ tout le chemin jusqu'à environ $ de nouvelles. Ils sont cool et guitares si vous creusez vraiment la forme du corps et cela est juste de votre allée. Si vous n'êtes pas dans la forme du corps et vous êtes probablement passer sur ce point et aller directement à l'instrument Gibson Les Paul.

Silverburst Explorer qui se trouve être un modèle Signature

Gibson Dethklok Thunderhorse ExplorerPublié le 22/06/11 à contenu en anglais(contenu en anglais)
The Dethklok Thunderhorse Explorer is a guitar based off of what one of the characters in the heavy metal cartoon Metalocalypse plays. It is heavy in the cartoon and in the real life it is just as metal. The Gibson Explorer is a classic rock and roll design that is regaining popularity. In the late 50s Gibson decided to start a line of more radical looking guitars. Gibson first started selling Explorers in and their design was way too radical for the time so they were discontinued a year later. In Gibson started the first reissue of the original design and now today Gibson is selling reissues of the reissues. Gibson has been producing the '76 reissue Explorer since Many people say the '76 reissues are better than the original Explorers put out in The first 50s models were made from Korina wood these are the classic yellow looking Gibsons you have seen. When they first started reissuing them they were made out of Mahogany like most Gibsons and today thats how they are made still. The guitar has a very classy look because of its fully body and neck binding. It has a 22 fret Ebony fretboard with dot inlays. The neck is a super slim 60s style Gibson neck taper for fast playing. The body of the guitar has the cool Silverburst finish which Gibson has been bringing back. It has dual Gibson humbuckers with the typical Explorer controls and switching.

UTILIZATION

This guitar improves on the already great Explorer playability. In the 60s Gibson switched to slimmer neck design. The Explorer today has that 60s design. The 60s Gibson neck profile is one of their most popular. This guitars neck is a modified 60s taper that is even slimmer and faster and unlike most Explorers this guy has an ebony fretboard that feels great under your fingers. The upper frets are easy to reach because of the Explorers design. The radical shape actually gives the guitar a perfect balance for playing while standing up. The neck will come to rest at a perfect angle due to the large body acting as a counter weight.

SOUNDS

The Burstbucker Gibson pickups in this Explorer are hotter than normal Gibson pickups so this guitar rocks even harder than a normal Explorer. The Explorer is made from a huge piece of solid mahogany and you can really hear it. The Explorers pickups come from the factory with the covers removed. Guitarists in the 70s found that if you removed the covers from humbuckers you could get a little more bite in your sound so Gibson decided to do it from the factory for the players. The Explorer sounds like what every Gibson should sound like. To emulate the sound you hear on the cartoon you may want to switch to active pickups like EMG's. The Gibson pickups are okay for metal but they really were not designed for it. EMG pickups are designed for heavy high gain music and excel at it.

OVERALL OPINION

I am very critical of pointless signature models or signature models that are so specific only the artist or a guy in a coverband could ever use the guitar. This guitar is good that it isnt too specific in what it can do. Its a classic Explorer design with some decent pickups and a cool finish you dont really see on Explorers. There are not any huge crazy logos or signatures anywhere the only extra writing is on the truss rod cover that everyone loses after 5 minutes anyway. This is how you do a signature model. Many people can use this guitar for many different things. If you are looking for an Explorer with that isnt red or black and has a finish you dont see everyday this is a good bet.
Le Dethklok Thunderhorse Explorer est une guitare basée hors de ce l'un des personnages dans les jeux de métaux lourds Metalocalypse bande dessinée. Il est lourd dans la bande dessinée et dans la vie réelle, il est juste que le métal. L'explorateur de Gibson est une conception classique du rock and roll qui est regain de popularité. Dans la fin des années 50 Gibson a décidé de commencer une ligne de guitares plus radicale à la recherche. Gibson a commencé à vendre des explorateurs en et leur conception a été beaucoup trop radicale pour l'époque ils étaient donc abandonnée un an plus tard. En , Gibson a commencé la réédition d'abord l'original de conception et aujourd'hui Gibson vend rééditions des rééditions. Gibson a été la production de l'explorateur '76 réédition depuis Beaucoup de gens disent du '76 rééditions sont meilleurs que les premiers explorateurs mis en Les premiers modèles des années 50 ont été fabriqués à partir de bois de Korina ce sont les classiques jaunes Gibsons recherche que vous avez vu. Quand ils ont commencé leur réémission elles ont été faites hors de l'acajou, comme la plupart de Gibsons et c'est aujourd'hui comment ils sont faits encore. La guitare a un look très classe à cause de son corps entièrement et contraignante du cou. Il a une touche en ébène 22 frettes avec des incrustations de points. Le cou est un super style mince 60 du cou conique Gibson pour jouer vite. Le corps de la guitare a la finition Silverburst cool qui Gibson a été ramener. Il a la double humbucker Gibson avec les commandes de l'Explorateur de typique et de commutation.

UTILISATION

Cette guitare améliore la jouabilité Explorer, déjà grande. Dans les années 60 Gibson commuté conception plus mince cou. L'explorateur a aujourd'hui que le design des années Le profil 60 du cou Gibson est un de leurs plus populaires. Ce goulot est un cône guitares modifiées 60 qui est encore plus mince et plus rapide et, contrairement à la plupart des explorateurs ce mec a une manche d'ébène qui se sent beaucoup sous vos doigts. Les frettes supérieures sont faciles à atteindre à cause de la conception des explorateurs. La forme radicale donne effectivement de la guitare d'un équilibre parfait pour jouer debout. Le cou va venir se reposer à un angle parfait à cause de la grande masse agit comme un contre-poids.

SONORITÉS

Les micros Burstbucker Gibson dans cet explorateur sont plus chaudes que la normale micros Gibson donc cette guitare roches encore plus dur que la normale un explorateur. L'explorateur est fait d'un énorme morceau d'acajou massif et vous pouvez vraiment l'entendre. Les micros explorateurs venus de l'usine avec les couvercles enlevés. Guitaristes dans les années 70 a révélé que si vous avez supprimé les couvertures des humbuckers vous pourriez obtenir un peu plus mordant dans votre son si Gibson a décidé de le faire à partir de l'usine pour les joueurs. L'Explorer ressemble à ce que tous les Gibson devrait ressembler. Pour émuler le son que vous entendez sur la bande dessinée, vous voudrez peut-être passer à micros actifs EMG, comme. Les micros Gibson sont ok pour le métal, mais ils étaient vraiment pas conçu pour cela. Micros EMG sont conçus pour la musique de gain élevé et lourds y exceller.

AVIS GLOBAL

Je suis très critique des modèles de signature inutile ou modèles de signature qui sont si spécifiques que l'artiste ou un gars dans un coverband pourrait jamais utiliser la guitare. Cette guitare est bon que ce n'est pas trop précis dans ce qu'il peut faire. Son un design classique avec une certaine Explorateur micros décents et une finition cool que vous n'avez pas vraiment voir sur les explorateurs. Il n'ya pas de logos énormes fous ou des signatures partout la seule écriture supplémentaire est sur le couvercle du truss rod que tout le monde perd après 5 minutes de toute façon. C'est ainsi que vous faire un modèle signature. Beaucoup de gens peuvent utiliser cette guitare pour beaucoup de choses différentes. Si vous êtes à la recherche d'un explorateur avec ce n'est pas rouge ou noir et a une finition vous ne voyez pas tous les jours c'est un bon pari.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at %.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2, of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,

And it looks great, too, in a stunning high-gloss Silverburst finish, in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer, of course.

Like several classic Gibson guitars, the Explorer Baritone has a body crafted from solid mahogany in the classic "pointy" Explorer shape. It has a glued-in neck made from superior quarter-sawn maple for improved strength and resonance, and a Preciosa fingerboard with 24 medium-jumbo frets. The neck is carved to a fast yet comfortable Explorer profile and measures .800" deep at the 1st fret and .850" at the 12th, with a width of 1.70" across its PLEK-cut Corian nut. A mother-of-pearl Gibson logo graces the iconic "droopy" Explorer headstock, while classic four-ply white Explorer pickguard and elegant mother-of-pearl dot fingerboard inlays round out the cosmetic appointments.

A major part of the Explorer Baritone's firepower naturally comes from its pickups, two of Gibson USA's finest contemporary humbuckers. The 496R in the neck position is made with a ceramic magnet for creamy smooth tones with outstanding sustain, and impressive clarity. The 500T in the bridge position'Gibson's second hottest pickup'also uses a ceramic magnet, along with over-wound coils for serious crunch and snarl from the bridge position and unparalleled wailing lead tones. To keep it all rock-solid for superb sustain and resonance, the Explorer Baritone carries Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, famous for more than five decades for their sustain-enhancing solidity and superb adjustability. Up top, Grover kidney button tuners ensure tight, precise tuning. Wrap it all up, and it just might be the world's most toneful way to get your low-down riffs on.

Every Explorer Baritone comes protected in a Gibson hardshell case, and is covered by Gibson's two year warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Support.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
