Yeah I realised how much of a bargain it was and just grabbed it and not to mention it has the most amazing top I've seen on a Gibson in this price range in Australia. I can't wait to rip it out of the lovely white case once i pay it off sometime over the next 6 months!

Holy SHIT! They average about $3500 where I live and the retail is $4800.

I'm happy with my bargain of the next year. I am just kicking myself i have to wait that long..But delayed gratification is a wonderful thing

Wow Australia. With those prices sometimes I wonder if people would be better off buying a ticket to the UK or Japan and just buying it there and coming straight home :P

Not really

UK: http://www.thomann.de/gb/gibson_les_paul_traditional_lb.htm

That's like 1700 quid and that's equivalent to 3400 australian and then an $800 plane ticket to UK so really it isn't a bad price. It is $400 more then the original US retail price for this Gibson and it's like nearly 2k down from the Australia retail price.

Sir you just got told.

So to be honest flying all the way to those places would cost more in the long run the only time it would save you money is buying multiple Gibson's and flying back with them. The only good place you should go to buy stuff to get it sent back is America. Huge mark up no matter where you go apart from America.

Your lucky i dont live in Australia. Because if i did, id come find you, and id chloroform you, tie you up with rope, and cement your hands and feet together. And then id play your guitar in front of you. All day. Everyday. While you cry in a corner, forced to watch me play it.

HNGD!!! Enjoy her!!
