  1. If you can’t collect it, don’t bother.
  2. I use them in solo stuff, usually along with a capo.
  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  4. There’s a useful Facebook post here from Fish, ex-singer from Marillion. It’s rather long, but well worth taking the time to read. It lists the various ways the current situation will impact touring. Bear in mind the guy has years of experience in international touring, what he’s saying is based on his experience, not on what some guy told him down the pub. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10157827728953587&id=54830663586
  5. That’s a beautiful instrument. W&T make some fabulous basses. Arnaud bought my old 5 string Chronos from me last summer, so I could buy my new 6 string.
  6. Thank you. I was incredibly pleased with his work. It was a very good price too, bearing in mind he had to do some routing.
  7. If you’ve got the pickups then try Robin at Manton customs. He built some covers for me using ebony, and did a seriously brilliant job.
  8. I didn’t realise that. I know Mark’s been complaining. I sad an advert in the sales section here saying EU sales only - can’t be bothered with the paperwork I guess.
  9. Steve is a fabulous musician and a great teacher. I studied with him on and off for a couple of years. I know exactly what you mean.
  10. That’s a lot extra isn’t it? I hope it wasn’t too unexpected. I noticed a couple of adverts in the sales section stating EU only, obviously for this reason.
  11. There’s a good explainer here. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2021/jan/21/eu-website-purchases-the-import-charges-uk-customers-have-to-pay
  12. There’s also a limit before the VAT is paid by the courier. If the item is below £135 then it’s paid to the seller - they need to register for UK VAT to do this. Consequently many are now refusing to ship low cost items to the UK. If it’s over £135 that when the VAT is paid by the courier etc,
  13. You’d be a little daft to falsify the value, particularly if it’s an expensive instrument. You can’t give the real value for the insurance, and then a lower value for customs.
  14. Peter Gabriel solved the problem for lead vocalists - and maybe brass players too?
