Buying a guitar online?

Recommended Posts

Hi! Come into some cash, so looking to buy a decent electric guitar - looking at the ESP LTD EC1000 in Vintage Black, but no fucker in Glasgow has it! Tried it out and deffo the guitar I want - but should I actually PLAY the one I want, or am I OK to go with an online retailer?

Whatchoofink?

Personally, I'd never buy a guitar online. You have no idea what you're going to get sent which is why I always go to a shop and try out the guitar that I might end up buying.

I feel your pain with no one having the guitar you want, in January I was down to Glasgow to buy a new Les Paul. Have you spoke to one of the guys in a local shop and see if they could get one in for you to try?

I think R&B may have one in stock, haven't been in for a long time though.

I was in yesterday and they have a few of those models but I didn't see any in black, they were all some sort of sunburst iirc.

It's not so bad buying second hand stuff on spec. The only bass I've lost money on was the only one I bought new (my first). You buy it because you might like it, if it doesn't work out then you'll pretty much always get your money back, particularly if you got it for a song in the first place.
