I think you're being tough on mushy peas, there.
Excluding cost of shipping, Ebay makes it a pretty even buyers market.
Oddly enough, the best playing and sounding guitar I own (and lightest), is a used guitar I bought off Ebay. I've had better luck on Ebay than I have from any visit to Guitar Center. Maybe I've just been lucky.
I just believe that America is honestly the best nation for people who play guitar simply due to availability, the existing culture, and the population density allowing for competition between music stores. Also many instruments were made in the US or are imported here for setup work.
You've obviously never been to "A Salt & Battery" in Greenwich Village, NYC. It's Brit owned and run....and you can also buy a "Cod Save The Queen" T-shirt there!
My local supermarket here in central New Jersey stocks mushy peas in their "International" section. I always make sure I have a good supply in my pantry.
Its a fair deal
we gave you cod and chips and mushy peas and you gave us teles , seems fair when you put it in the context that we gave you the best rock n roll the world will ever see , period . oh and the Beatles lol
i dunno how many squiggly lines is $800?
thats about how much a used 52RI cost in 'Merica
can y'all get a used 52RI for about 650 euro or 500 lbs?
I seriously doubt it.
I know amps are even worse for yous. some kiwi paid like $1000 for a Blues Junior
on here not too long ago.
I can get a BJ all day long for $200.
real blackface twin reverbs cost about $1200-$1800 a few (5-6) years ago...
Yeah, it's the price of amps in the UK that really grinds my gears. Particularly Fenders. A Blues Jr goes for about £460 new (over $700). Used, £250-£300 (over $400).
Thanks for the link, and the work setting up the sheet. Prices surprised me a little. They were lower than I had anticipated. I know that they give no idea of condition but I think I need to avoid ebay as I have too many guitars already.
No willpower, have just bid on a couple of Telecasters!
Nice work, you avoided ebay for a whole 76 minutes!!
Yeah it's really bad. Worse still is that's there are barely any decent older fender amps around and when there are, they usually go for collector prices.
True Bill. I've seen a few old Twins on UK ebay & gumtree for c£500-£700 but vintage Princetons & Deluxe Reverbs... Madness.
I could weep over the amount of times I've seen silverface head+cab setups go really cheap because they are Arse-end-of-nowhere, Up North, collection only. It'd only be £40-50 to courier it, I promise!
A lot more good curry houses than good chippies nowadays in London.
IIRC Fenders are cheaper here, Marshalls are cheaper there.
There we go again Telecaster No 7. Mexican Standard, just a few miles down the road for £267. Did it belong to any of you?
Just as a point of order scotch whiskey is not cheaper here. We get taxed to oblivion and back.
It's still cheaper though - couldn't believe the price of Scotch when I was in the US! Was pleased with price of guitars though.
Not me, I seem to be accumulating guitars rather than offloading
