You can probably get an actual shipping quote off of a website by putting stuff in the checkout and going through the steps up until you actually have to pay for it.



excellent idea

Be prepared to pay Import tax after you get it, I wasn't expecting it and got stung with £24 tax on it a month after.

Ya that sucks, does anyone know any good guitar websites in Europe, like musiciansfriend perhaps?

Sorry for hijacking your thread.

thanks for the warning, but im sure its worth it. the guitar id get from america (the syn standard) is the same price but in pounds as it is in dollars, which is just a total rip off.....


I also hate that, I want to buy a schecter omen 7 and it costs 250 dollars in America and 250 euros in Europe.

What the ****

However, buying a guitar from America and then getting it shipped to the UK may void any warranty involved.

Plus if you don't like it you can't really return it. I bought a guitar from thomann and I didnt really like the sound of it through my set up. So i phoned them and they got DHL to come pick it up from my house free of charge and return it. Within 4 days of returning it I had got my money back and I then purchased another guitar which worked very well with my setup. Both guitars came within 3 days

Over a certain price it is, but it's safe to say the Schecter is over that. Although I honestly think that one should always try before they buy. Just my opinion, of course.

dude that's gonna be a lot of money. just from NM (New Mexico, yes we're part of the country) and NY it cost me $87 to ship my guitar and amp that I sold off ebay. I made like $60 when I was hoping for $120

I agree. I'd actually already tried the 2nd guitar that i wanted to get and I was going to buy it from thomann, then i saw this esp ltd on the website that i had not tried and i decided to get it on impulse which was a bad choice lol. But yeah try before you buy.

Do you live in or near London? If so go to Tottenham Court Road station by train then go to Denmark Street. There are loads of guitar shops there and there is a guitar shop there that has like very single schecter you could want to try. Its called souncontrol and its actually inside the Virgin Megastore there on the bottom floor. They have everything from cheap squires to PRS Custom 24's, a very good shop and you can try most of the things out.

In Portugal the guitar shop owners have never even heard of Schecters, what a bunch of noobs.
I'm also a lefty and there aren't any lefty Schecters omen 7, so i have to re-string it.

Yeah but only the one on Denmark Street. The one on Oxford Street has just cds and stuff like a normal virgin megastore, the one on Denmark Street has soundcontrol on the bottom floor! Its pretty big too. Denmark street in general has loads of music and guitar stores but the soundcontrol in virgin megastores has the biggest range of guitars.

edit: oh yeah i did spell soundcontrol without the d in the other post. I was wondering why you randomly had the d in caps lol
