Im just wondering does anyone know of any equavilant stores like rondo music, but for the UK?

I've tried looking and i cant find anywhere like it, i dont want to have to spend £500 for a half decent named guitar when i can get something like an agile etc for £200!

Is there any type of brand that really stands for qaulity and price and/ or any online shops or places where sell them?


P.s. i dont want to use Agile becuase i'd have to ship from the USA and i cant send anything back if it's broken.

Yes, for the UK.... A store which is based in the united kingdom and/ or EU, which would mean i wouldnt have the issue of shipping prices, VAT/ customs and the major problem of taking a risk spending £400 and not being able to send the guitar/ or bass back if it is broken.

I've heard Vintage guitars compared to Agiles on here quite a few times. Gak sell them, probably along with plenty of other places.

Yeah Vintage's are considered the UK's Agile, I don't think they're quite as good but meh, unnoticable.

To be honest they're probably made in the same factory.

Vintage. Great guitar for the money.

And anyway, Vintage and Agile guitars are good, but they are not the Holy Grail of guitars or anything. They are good for what they cost. But an Ibanez ART which is twice the price will still blow them out of the water.
Just a friendly reminder, people around here sometimes talk about Agiles as if they're god knows what.

I've noticed that too. I've seen lots of Agile owners on here making wild claims like they're as good as the high-end Tokai/Epi Elitists and I'm pretty sure I've seen at least one person claiming that if you changed the pickups it'd be as good as a Gibson Custom Shop... like... christ people. I know everyone loves the guitars they own, but be realistic.


Ahem. Anyway...


Vintage, Rally, Tokai. There's a few others but those are the three you actually have a chance of finding in a store to test out. Basically, these and most Epiphones are all made in the same place, to the same quality - just that these copy brands can be sold a bit cheaper because they don't have the 'real' body shape (and of course have a less famous name on their headstocks). You can't go wrong with any of them though. Get down to a store, pick up whatever LPs you see with Vintage, Rally and Tokai on their headstocks.

yeah, that's my concern too. I mean, i haven't tried any agiles, but i've tried a fair few vintages, and assuming agiles are of similar quality for the money (which common sense dictates that they are), then they're probably decent for the money, but not much more.

the other thing is, are you actually willing to go to £500? if so, you can do a lot better than vintage... MIJ tokais, NOS patrick eggles, JJs etc. start becoming available, and (based on the examples of those I've tried, anyway) they'll completely annihilate a Vintage or similar.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
