How much do they cost in the USA? I here of lots of people that go there and Holiday and come back with new guitars because they got them dirt cheap. Lots of guys also sell them in Ireland for a bigger price. US Strats and Les Paul Standards...how much?
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ look here and you should get the ballpoint figure for the guitars
The price difference doesn't seem to be that much, LP standards are still around 2500$
