    Yeah I've not heard anything bad about them and know a few folk that have bought from them. I can also recommend GAK and Andertons

    Yeah Andertons are great - apart from the entertaining YouTube channel, their customer service is incredibly helpful. They don't have the prettiest of the new Epi LPs in stock though, gah. Nor do GAK, who I also like (they're my local too).

    And if we're talking surf green colour, the sea foam green fender precision is a thing of beauty

    Complete coincidence as it's the first time i've wandered into this thread but i've just ordered one of these. Realised I had some cash sat in an old savings account and thought fuck it, always wanted to learn guitar and i'm not doing much else at the minute. I've owned a copy of Rocksmith for years and just ordered the cable a few days ago with the intention of borrowing a guitar from a friend but decided to take the plunge anyway.

    Was looking at telecasters the other day but i've always prefered the sound of strats. Can't wait to get crackin'! Love the colour!

    Edit* Sorry, meant the 6 string! Just saw 'vintera' and 'sea foam' and my mind went to the guitar i'd just ordered.

    Wuntyís link is a bass - now Iím imagining some sort of hilarious episode where it takes you hours of trying to tune it up enough to play guitar tunes :D

    ;)

    It's quite daunting but I'm pleased I've got a lot of friends who've played for years for advice. Currently subbing to a zillion YouTube guitar channels. No more Animal Crossing evenings for a while.

    Canít recommend Justin Guitar highly enough, and I also like Paul Davids, Sean Daniel and StichMethod. Marty Music is OK but Iím not sure why heís so popular.

    Paul Davids voice is somehow simpering AND patronising sounding.

    I've decided I hate him

    Completely forgot to post a photo!

    Haven't had much of a chance to play around this week but i'm gonna throw myself into things with the long weekend. Ordered a strap, a little 1w headphone amp and i've got a lead on the way too.



    Ignore the Pringle crumbs and empty bottle of whiskey at my feet.

    Cheers! I think after buying this I realised I'm a bit of a tart and like things that look quite nice. You wouldn't believe how long it took me to pick out that strap that looks completely nondescript. It's nice too though. The soft denim is reet nice.

    It's an Ernie Bell strap? I don't know much about brands but he's popping up everywhere. Think it was about 20 quid all in?

    Ernie Ball is a big string manufacturer, get yourself some super slinkyís in the pink packet and get your Hendrix on

    That's a nice-looking guitar. Maple fingerboards always look better IMO.
