Recent review of this
yeah I've left mine alone but I know some people have their own preferences, great guitar for the price hope you enjoy it :)
...no point buying a g400 pro if intention imho. (have one on order / bought for action + pups / taps - leaving well T.F. alone)
can't beat a maple satin neck though... imho (garbage ceramic pickups and bridge aside). if had a epi standard bridge setup i would have probably have been buying.
I’m not sure how good the very cheap Gibson’s are, the firebird zero and M2 seemed to get some pretty mixed reviews. It’s probably worth the extra money to step up to the faded or studio models ( whatever the next step up is ) or for 300 you can pickup an G400 pro https://www.andertons.co.uk/guitar-dept/electric-guitars/epiphone-g-400-pro-sg-cherry-chrome-hardware https://www.gak.co.uk/en/epiphone-g-400-pro-cherry/61809 Can even get it in a silver burst for a tenner more https://www.kennysmusic.co.uk/epiphone-limited-edition-1961-g-400-pro-silverburst leaves you some extra cash to start swapping pickups or hardware Second hand can probably do even better for your money either on the Gibson or epiphones
After a LOT of tooing and froing I went for the FG800 in brown Sunburst which I managed to get for £199. Many thanks for helpful advice, looking forward to getting it and starting a new hobby!
I don't think it is a great deal, I but have given it heat just for the information and discussion it has generated which is most useful. Have been using a £70 Yamaha acoustic for last couple of years, and need a step up in guitar now.
Surprised at the heat on this when lots of other music retailers have the same guitar for about the same price (ie PMT is £174, Dawsons and Gear4Music £178 based on a quick search!). Yamaha's are nice guitars though, but theres always deals around on the lower level FG models. IMO the best deal on the FG800M would be to pay £15 more, and buy the FG800M bundled with a Line 6 Sonic Port VX Interface for £189 for Gear4Music. There's a lot of choice with interfaces; but someone playing at home or considering recording some of their music, you really can't really go wrong for that low a price to get started on one as it even has a built-in mic and the quality of Line 6 devices in the last few years has been pretty solid. Its not fancy, but lets you give it a try without committing to something expensive! https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Yamaha-FG800M-Singer-Songwriter-Pack-Natural/2KF7 FWIW, I personally find Thomann are really really good to deal with, but if you decided you didn't like the guitar due to its action or size (Yamaha FG series are dreadnaught style bodies so bit large for some people), it is more of a hassle to return to them in Germany, and they don't automatically provide free returns from the UK.
Which model number is the fully varnished one? Is the fret board varnished too?
Its a great guitar for the money, and will last you years, its a guitar you'll keep as you grow more proficient. Its important to have a good quality instrument as a beginner, it doesn't have to be expensive, but an easy to tune, good tone and build quality will make you want to continue, without the distractions from a crap guitar. You can learn on a crap guitar, many have. And jimmy page, jimi hendrix would sound good playing almost anything. Just my experience.
https://www.dawsons.co.uk/yamaha-p-45-stage-piano-black https://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-CDP-130BKC5-Piano/dp/B00IXMGFTM I believe the number on these are not above £500 .... (y) :p
Could you be more specific?
This is absolutely true and I can recommend the Arius too -we tried around 30 pianos before getting this and its build and sound quality is superb.
Had an old Leatherman pliers and i've broke jars by opening tin of paint ,used as prybar , so it was definatelly my fault, but i reminded myself about lifetime warranty for those , and they send me new tool wothin a week (model up) no questions asked, so this is what You are paying up, excellent quality products..
BREXIT wouldn't change US COMPANYs price tag, RIP-OFF BRITAIN ... $79.95 on letherman and in Britain they just change $ for £ and add some 30%
I've had one of these for 12 years and its still my go-to tool. Superb!
Anyone know if Costco still do these? Worth checking as were a lot cheaper than this the last time I bought one

You'll need a Big Muff for that.
So which one is going to get me sounding like a nasty sludge metal band?
heat just for guitar related items!!
Yeah, they have the Gonkulator for £69.44.
Thanks, didn’t see the Ventura Vibe! Might work out marginally cheaper on Amazon once the P&P is included if you’re thinking of buying. Amazon also have some decent Digitech deals on at the moment, they usually have a couple on Black Friday too. I picked up some cracking Digitech pedals on Amazon last year. Managed to get a Whammy V for £80 (usually around £150) and a Polara reverb for £80 (usually £110).
Great mic, i bought one from Poland a few months ago and the quality is fantastic for the money.
The chrome one is £48.35 on Amazon UK Samson Meteor USB Microphone - Chrome https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004MF39YS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_L-7Byb3JNTM40
An active bass with through neck for £200! Bargain
Lovely looking bass guitar. :)
This looks very nice for the money!
very tempted myself
Bundle looks a really good deal.
it will be one https://m.thomann.de/gb/tannoy_reveal_402_bundle.htm?ref=mpd_ra_0
Monitors? are you sure its a pair and not a single unit ?
£62.70 & FREE Delivery in the UK @Amazon...
Please help me find them cheeper?
Great deal. Use thomann all the time, great customer service.
Looks nice in natural.
Damn I was after a semi-acoustic or even a plain ole electro-acoustic
"The Impact LX88 is the flagship product in the Impact line and the first Nektar keyboard featuring an 88 note semi-weighted keybed." I'll update the description thanks.
You'd want weighted or semi-weighted keys, makes a big difference.
This is only touch sensitive (velocity) not weighted keys , so If you're coming from a baby grand it's going to feel strange to play it. Saying that, you're looking at about £299 for a fully weighted 88 key digi piano with midi. But that would also have a piano sound built in too ( Casio cdp-120)
update - the cable rubber casing had split exposing the protective layer underneath. I sent my headphones back to thomann and they swifty gave me a full refund as they no longer stock this item. very easy and simple process. recommended
I've been sold on the quietcomfort line since I tried a friends QC15s. But I like to lean my head on something when Im sleeping so I prefer the in ear version.
While the sound quality for listening to music is average (certainly not what you would expect at this price point), the noise cancellation makes up for it. I work in a noisy office and tend to wear these often, even without any music playing.
It came out as £801.50 at the current exchange rate.
Has "mini etune" too. (automatic tuning)
If only I could afford one!
Heritage cherry is cheaper at £803 http://www.thomann.de/gb/gibson_sg_standard_2014_hc.htm
Need to get a new pair of Bose QC20s or QC25 after leaving my on a plane and naturally, they didn't get handed in :(
Love mine worth every penny and i paid rrp
Headphones are amazing! U completely forget your on a flight an a god send if sitting near noisy kids or chavs on flights
Probably the best headphones for travelling or a noisy office you can buy. Though I have the previous version, anyone who tries them are astounded at the difference they make. A luxury item , yes. But a great buy nonetheless ,
The bass not bad ;-)
The original package is back at Thomann.de! AND, it's less than it cost before. Great deal at £199.75!
My Avid stuff FINALLY arrived. Whenever I've ordered from Thomann, it's been a lot faster (3-4 days max). This took just under 2 weeks - https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/10923600_10153580970549126_6437607677839586755_n.jpg?oh=29ab615c2cea2f3ed4d7df9da7b0dbe8&oe=5527D3CE&__gda__=1432725882_828bea4c2ad81f6a79af36f21d7e243f
You could amend this deal as basically it's the same but £3 more.
Ah, I see now. That works pretty well. You should post that :) EDIT: Deal amended!
Let me reword that to make it clearer. They have http://www.thomann.de/gb/avid_fast_track_solo.htm for £69 and http://www.thomann.de/gb/avid_pro_tools_crossgrade_express.htm for £145 for a total price of £214 so only £3 more than the bundle unless I misread that!
It gets better... now free postage on this!
Lolyeright you are wrong/mistaken/incorrect. I've ordered from Thomann for years and never paid custom charges. As stated above British Vat is included in the price. No apology required.
Hi Are you sure as this is at the bottom of the page: Offers include 20% British VAT and are valid as long as stocks last. Shipping costs to the U.K. are 10 EUR thomann (approx. £7), free shipping on orders above 199 EUR. Please click here for international Shipping rates. We do not accept liability for typographical errors or inaccurate information of any kind. *RRP = manufacturer's / distributor's recommended retail price in Germany I assume from this that it's shipped from Germany? Apols if I've got it wrong...
Op is mistaken. It's bought from outside the UK meaning VAT is payable on it should the package be intercepted by UK customs.
