im wondering if they are any good because its my 18th next month and im getting a Schecter C-7 Blackjack AXT and its £605 on the site which is an amazing price. but there is a guitar shop in glasgow that is selling it for £800 and i dont know weather it is worth buying it there because its nearly £200 more expencive. the main reason im asking is because i dont know if i would have to pay improt costs or not because i live in Scotland and the guitars in Germany.

amy help will be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance

for amyone who says upgrade my anp, i'd rather not because i like my Randall.

Thomann are a good shop, I think their prices on the website include the relevant costs apart from P&P so you shouldn't get any nasty surprises.

you can get everything cheaper in the uk, why peeps buy guitar stuff online is beyond my comprhension you`ve just got to shop around, my nearest music shop is 3 miles away but i travel 30 miles to get a better service and better deals.

if you want sometyhing badly shop around. learn to haggle.

have you checked this in manchester

thomann is a good store, bought 2 ESP guitars from there and they both shipped without any problems at all

the prices include taxes based on your country selection and you can check out shipment costs in the FAQ
Main gear
  • ESP Eclipse II Standard (BK Cold Sweat)
  • ESP Horizon NT-II Standard (SD '59/JB)
  • Marshall JVM 410 Combo

This is where my knowledge of the European Union comes in!
You pay NO import taxes on intra-European commerce, so the price listed on the Thomann website will be the only cost. Do check whether you actually selected the UK in the website though.. Taxes are included in the price, shipping is free as far as I know (I live in Belgium).
I'd say DO IT! I've heard a LOT of good feedback from Thomann's international customers. And I'm getting a sevenstring from Thomann as well this month!

Trust me, the UK is NOT cheaper for A lot of stuff. Like petrol....

I've not personally bought from there but I know friends who have and they've never had a problem with it. Because it's over £200 you get free shipping too.

Quote by ibanezgod1973
play more guitar and less gaming and good luck with your haggling


all i do is play guitar and i want to do something different and get back into gameing.
i have a feeling that the schecter might change my mind though
i also have friends over quite a lot and one of them will bring their wii so i thought i could provide the entertainment for once
im going to need luck with the haggling so thanks
