Hi guys,
I've been thinking about insuring my guitar, just in case. Anyone here have any good/bad experiences with insurers and what would you reccommend? Btw I live in the UK.

Thanks

Check your standard home contents insurance (or get your parents to check it if you still live with them) - if it's the same as mine, individual musical instruments up to a value of £2000 each are covered as standard.

Not sure how this would work at a university, but with any kind of rented property you're usually responsible for your own contents insurance, so you'd probably be wise to get some general insurance that would cover all belongings that you keep in your accommodation - imagine if the place burned down and you lost all your clothes....

I insured my Bass for a tour with Endsleigh, they seemed pretty solid. They do specific instrument insurance.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

i insure all my gear (guitars, amps, pa etc) through Allianz music insurance ( http://www.allianzmusicalinsurance.co.uk/ )
i have about 5 grands worth of stuff insured for £100 pound per year, and that covers me for accident and theft whilst at home, at the venue and even during transit, in both the UK and Europe, so as a gigging musician that plays both in the uk and the continent, thats a steal of a deal! i've been with them for 3 years now and fortunately not had to claim, but it offers excellent peace of mind and altering the policy is very simple, just a phone call to add or take off gear.

I have been interested in playing guitar. One year ago I take a guitar insurance from guitar insurance company. So it's very beneficial for me. If you wanna to buy guitar insurance then go to your nearest insurance company and get it.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
