  1. Fave guitar shops

    What are the best guitar/instrument shops around at the moment? Or legendary ones that are still going strong? What are your worst gripes about guitar shops? And which are the worst shops around? I had a fun time at GuitarGuitar in Surrey a few months back - really nice range and enthusiastic, non-patronising staff, they let me try about five different guitars with no hard sell. Started shredding on a Firebird and got big thumbs up from a \m/ dude. Greatest guitar shop is S. Wales memory was Speed Music in Newport/Cardiff but they unfortunately closed down. Again, really enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff who were happy to let you blast LOUD on amps and always gave you a great deal. Worst I've been to recently was one of those on Denmark St. in London - knobbish staff chatting to their mates and making jokes about women not being able to plug in guitar leads (??!!) - and crap guitars to boot. Shop was totally empty as well which is a pretty bad sign considering its location. Forgotten what it was called mind...
  2. Guitar Insurance

    I've had a quick search on the forums to see if this has been covered elsewhere but I can't find anything. Apologies if there are already a bunch'a threads about this. Anyway, I've recently bought a dream guitar and want to get it insured - it's going to be traveling with me to a lot of gigs in the UK and Europe... and possibly further afield. Got a quick quote from Allianz for 'worldwide including unattended vehicle' for £40 a year which seems... incredibly reasonable tbh. Obviously I would need to check out the details first but was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with buying or claiming on instrument insurance, good pointers on what to look out for etc. etc. Bit of a boring thread but any advice welcome. There are a *lot* of companies out there!

  4. Been given a Westone Thunder II - doer upper?

    So I finally got around to cleaning this up and re-stringing it... my oh my what a great player! Kinda heavy but so resonant and comfortable. Every time I put it down I pick it up again five minutes later to carry on twiddling Electronics are snafu'd though. Cuts in and out when you wiggle the pickup selector, and one of the little switches has snapped off. When it does 'sound' through the amp, it's lovely. Anyone interested in taking it off my hands for a nominal offer if I get some pictures up? (If it wasn't a few months before Xmas I'd gift it to the next person but times are hard I'm afraid.)
  5. Bump. Open to offers remember Really don't want to put it on eBay!
  6. Hmm, need the cash really, but I'm curious to see what you're offering
  7. Yep it's a fantastic player.
