Exactly.

Not all guitarists/bassists in the UK know this yet, the best place to get guitars cheap is from www.thomann.de. Guitars are much cheaper in Europe and it only costs about £6 to ship them over. Result!

Ibanez RG655

Blackstar HT-5
Harley Benton G212 Vintage

Not exactly, Thomann are cheap because they're bloody massive and shift a phenomenal amount of stock, hence more buying muscle. However, they aren't cheapest for everything, for example their Ibanezes can be a tad pricey. Guitars aren't generally cheaper in mainland Europe...they tend to be more expensive.

I own 2 Corts, and I like the quality. I don't own that series though.

^he means it, look there. I got my Danelectro DC-12 for £240 from thomann, when they cost at least £400 in stores (if they even sell them, nobody really does), so its cheaper, and you get much more choice. Over here all you can get really are fender, ibanez, epiphone, squier, and burns... thats about it..

Well I know they aren't the cheapest for EVERYTHING, for example a lot of their Jacksons are the same price as mainland UK. But it's worth checking thomann to make sure, no? Sorry for assuming things

Over here UK, or over here Hereford?

I see loads of stuff on sale in the UK...PRS, Brian Moore, obviously Trevor Wilkinson's stuff, Minarik, ESP/LTD, Dean, Gretsch, Jackson, Eggle...Daisy Rock! The main thing is that Schecter's are pretty thin on the ground, and obviously ranges can be limited due to less overall demand over here but I've certainly never felt limited by the choice of guitars in the UK. Thomann are cheap, and cheapest for a lot of things, but not everything so it's important to shop around if you want the best price.

that's true - ibanezes are cheaper at places like gak.co.uk or turnkey.co.uk (both of which are also actually stores, gak is in brighton and turnkey is the site name for soho soundhouse in london), i figured this out because the AR300 costs £441 on thomann but £350 on those two sites.

Thomann do free shipping though if you pay more than €200, which is about £133, so almost all guitars except for the crappy harley bentons, and random hofner guitars are shipped free

I think a few amps are more expensive on Thomann too, stuff like the DSL401...they do, however have some great offers. I eagerly await my bi-annual "Hot Deals!" leaflet from them

i mean sort of west midlands/wiltshire/cotswolds sort of area where i've been to guitar places, i've never seen anywhere that regularly stocks anything else, except maybe lag (i think i forgot them)

edit: hehe... thomann sends me 2 hot deals leaflets for some random reason, i think it just registered in the database twice lol.

^That guitar is very good for the price, I would get it!

Also on Thomanns, pickups like Dimarzio and Seymour Duncan tend to be cheaper than buying in the UK.

nice guitar
the m600 looks fantastic
hmm mighty mite pickups never heard of em how do they sound

Meh they're alright. The got coil split, which can be useful sometimes. But, My amp is horrible, so it makes my guitar clip whenever I play it. I need to roll the volume down to get good sounds with my amp. When I play through the Mesa Boogie at the store with it sounds awesome. I might change pickups in the future though. They are wax potted which is also a plus, hardly any noise.

not necessarily- for some things they're dearer than in the UK.

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.
