    Happy Bastille Day!

    And happy birthday to my oldest MIJ Les Paul*, 42 years old today. Originally it was a goldtop, but I rather like the shabby chic effect, caused by what the seller termed a "crappy refin". *that's what it says on the headstock ;)

    NGD Edwards LPC

    Bought this on eBay on Thursday last from a seller elsewhere in the UK - a 2005 Edwards, precise model unknown. A bit of to-and-fro negotiation got it down to £5 less than his BIN with postage thrown in. I picked it up from the collection point this afternoon, only to discover a couple of...

    Rinkya shipping

    I won this Burny RLC earlier today and am awaiting its consignment to the warehouse: I have plenty of guitars to play while awaiting its arrival, so was wondering about having it shipped to the UK by sea in order to save a bit of money. Do any MIJ...

    NGD Greco LP Custom

    The NGD was actually yesterday, but I've finally put the new addition down for long enough to introduce her. An eBay purchase from Japan - the seller, ookini55 (mentioned elsewhere) is prepared to sort out the CITES documentation - I secured her for a total cost, shipping and duty included, of...
