Looking for a guitar brand

Hey,

I'm looking for a guitar brand, I saw a guitar in a shop but I can't remember the name. The guitar looked kinda like the fender stratocasters but it was around 300 bucks. The guitar was made in the UK, the brand had a long name beginning with C or G I but I can't remember it. The sound was pretty good and I want to find it.

Thanks by advance

Maybe G&L?

I understand that is a fairly short name.

No it wasn't G&L . It's very probably one of these lower brands. I've been searching and I haven't found it so it's probably not very well known. The first letter had one kind of a loop.

Are you SURE it was a UK brand?

And, at $300, was it used?

^ Godin is Canadian.

Chapman? MiK, but the company is British.

It was not used but yeah it was written "Made in the united kingdom" behind the head. It's none of these. Maybe do you have a site or something where there are name or logos where I could recognize it ?

Or go back to the store and look. If it is gone, ask the staff what it was.

Yeah I'll probably do that but I wanted if the brand was worth before.

I highly doubt a guitar could be manufactured in the UK then shipped to the USA for $300.

I live in the UK and I am not aware of any actual guitar companies other than custom builders and independent luthiers, I am 99.9% sure there are no mass producers of guitars built in this country.

We have amp manufacturers out the arse though.

The only possibility I can think of is it is something like a Crimson that has somehow been sold on and not known the true value of.

Not new, for sure.

Still, stranger things have happened. Could have been part of a liquidation, a lost or abandoned shipment, etc.

Would be interesting to see what it actually is to be honest.

No it wasn't but you couldn't find it because I was wrong from the start. I went yesterday and I saw it was a Tanglewood the name wasn't that long and the T looked a bit like a C or G. And no it wasn't in the list. What do you think about the Tanglewood guitars ?
