All of a sudden, prices on Thoman's website have increased dramatically. Last time I checked Fender American strat was around 16.000 NOK. It's 21.500 now. Kramer Pacer Classic was around 2.900. It's 4.299 now. It's more or less the same with other brands, Harley Benton guitars included. What's the deal? This is an insane price increase in a short period of time.

VAT sounds like rapage to me. I thought PA sales tax was bad at 6%...

Where I live ....... middle of nowhere ......... no civilized stores of interest ( music related ) .......4.5% ....... online 11.5% or drive 50- 75 miles to city 8.5 %. I miss the days of no tax on online orders ...... GEESH ! ...... I'm getting old !
Oklahoma is not so OK. As if tornadoes were not enough to deal with...

You had to blame inflation did you? 🤣🤣🤣
Nope, just Thomann now costs the same as everything else now. No more cheaper than Evenstad, Dan Musikk and Gitarist.no

I buy plenty of parts.

The Vega trem is actually cheaper at gitarist.no

Charvel So Cal style 1 left-handed. 10.222 kr @Thomann, 9.199 kr @Gear4music. It's roughly a 100$ difference.
Thomann is definitely not competitive with their prices anymore.
