Bargain for you, about $1,400 equivalent over here.
"that I'll pay back when I sell a couple other guitars" - May want to consider changing that "when" to "if" and get a bullet proof vest
well, we all know the magic "£1=$1" exchange rate when it comes to American guitars...
Nice guitar! And happily your new axe wasn't used as a true axe by the Missus and you still have your head!
Congratulations! You live to GAS another day.
That neck looks comfy. HNGD!
HNGD! But you may have just cost me quite a bit of money since I have been fighting a severe case of GAS for one of those Road Worn strats!
I feel like I may have just lost my battle!
It's always nice to stay alive after NGD. Congrats, thats a beautiful guitar. I especially like the fretboard.
I am, unfortunately, at a point where it's hard to walk around my home office without literally bumping into a guitar. I think this is my... 25th? 27th? That's probably a problem, too, when I'm not actually sure how many I have. LOL I think I might need to do an inventory and thin the herd in favor of the ones I actually play a bunch (and my '94 MIM Standard Strat that was my first guitar made of real wood).
Well, the guitars are listed on Reverb and Facebook Marketplace already. LOL Did the listings before I actually made the purchase.
Please tag me in the NGD thread.
You know, you can always withdraw those Reverb ads.... just give it a bit and say - no interest, then tell her you will relist them when the market moves a little.
Awesome guitar! I love my 2010 Road Worn. Best Fender Strat I’ve owned.
LOL You're too far away to come easily steal my stuff after I kick the bucket if your location is to be believed. LOL
But I legitimately don't play these guitars, and there's a couple others I haven't touched since who knows when, so moving a few wouldn't be a bad idea.
I know... Sounds strangely adult of me. LOL
I think its called "VAT"! UK price = +20% tax (and then some for less competitive market, transport costs and whatever).
Off - topic, but I’m curious.
In the US, the tax is never considered until you are ready to check out.
Is it the same in UK? Or when you see a guitar in the shop marked at £500, that’s what you pay?
for example in the US the store will mark the guitar at $500, but when you pay it will be $500 + 9% (depending on where you live). Although some states don’t charge sales tax.
yes, understood re. VAT/ import duty, but even when the exchange rate was a lot more U.K.-friendly than it is now, the magic exchange rate could still be seen in guitar prices a fair bit of the time.
yup, in the U.K. we always see the final price inc. tax.
