Hey people, i'm thinking about getting a ESP LTD EC 500 but, from the UK they all cost around 550-650 pound and from the US you can get them for around 450 off the internet.
Is it dangerous to get the guitar shipped? The guitar could be bashed around a bit and maybe the guitar could be slightly faulty.
Anyone had any past experience of getting a guitar shipped?
Thanks

i shipped a guiat to finland from america with no problem. the question i guess would be is a low budget esp worth the hassle? try finding a real esp in your area before getting the low end version.

Yeah but it's obvious that he doesn't want to spend £1000+ on a guitar, which is why he's buying it from the US,

I don't have any experience with shipping man, but you could try asking if they could put it in a flight case or something? There's stuff you need to do to the guitar before getting it shipped, like giving the strings slack etc.

Yes, but it might not be worth it if your only savin like £100 cos ull have to pay import charges on top of ure postage (about another £50)

i just think if you are gonna go through the hassle of shipping and the waiting game why do it for a low end guitar? have you tried craigslist?
