Yeah I got a nearly 700 import tax bill when I got my guitar shipped over. Combine that with the shipping cost of around 200 it makes it really very expensive getting guitars shipped over from the US.


It'd be cheaper to take a holiday to New York and to sneak it back with your luggage, if you don't get caught you've had a free holiday.

That was one of my original plans and if I were to do it again I would probably do. It just happened that the guitar was finished the week before christmas so flights were super expensive.

Just a quickie



Not played at volume yet, but so far every aspect has exceeded my hopes and expectations. Fit, finish, and set up are flawless. Was expecting to have to do a bit of setting up, but it was ace right out of he case. The sound is what's really blown me away though. The clarity is phenomenal, without being crashy or harsh. Kind of like a more dynamic P90 or something. Even with thick fuzz, the individuL notes seem to come through, but not in a piercing way.

Plus, it's the same colour as my favourite drink...Gaviscon

Yeah, it's the same one. Was a very special morning to see that on FB.

Will get round to it at some point in the not too distant future.

That was wicked. I love cnc machines. It was the crazy level of detail that was so cool. Every piece mschined, right down to the engraving of the numbers.
