Thread Name: New guitar recommendations
Subject: RE: New guitar recommendations
Re the US/UK thing, I'm likely to be sent over to Detroit by work sometime in the next couple of months, so a trip to Elderly is an option while I'm over there.

Import tariff will not be a problem - I'll just walk casually through the green channel... Sorry to disappoint, Midchuck. ;-) Problem I guess is that guitar shops can't do that and also have to pay UPS or whoever for shipping, so there's a pretty hefty difference in prices over here. My reso (bought from Elderly a couple of years back on another business trip) cost about 2/3 the UK price.

Thanks for the info, guys - I appreciate it. I've not heard of a lot of these makes or of those luthiers - cheers for those hints on UK luthiers, jonm and Spaw. And Roger, I'll check that shop out when I'm in London.
