    £1000 acoustic guitar preferably Gibson

    Banned
    I'm looking for a high end acoustic guitar around the £1000 price mark. I'd prefere to have a Gibson really. Models I'm interested in are: Songwriter, Hummingbird, all the jumbos, Dove. Best I've seen so far is Gibson songwriter for £1200 brand new. rep given if you can beat it!!!

    ]look at these on ebay to be posted from USA and australia. prices at the moment are just above £200 to £925.
    one is with ]BUYitNow price £899+25 postage in Birmigham here. Try to go through quidco and might get some more off the price say about £10.

    any way of calculating customs?

    for a rough price, add 20% (it's a little more) on top of the SHIPPED price.

    However, if you're going to splash 1K on an acoustic unseen then you must be mad especially on a Gibson!

    Buying an acoustic is a greater risk than an electric imho, I would definitely want to try the acoustic first to see if it sounds and plays good.

    You will also find that USA dealers are not allowed to sell Gibsons for export (unless you're friendly with the dealer) as that is Gibsons policy.

    You will also find that there won't be much variation in price (unless ex demo) on UK prices thanks to Rosetti (the UK distributor)

    My Gibson was about 600 quid from the usa and got hit with about 115 quid Customs :whistling:

    My Cole Clark FL1AC from OZ was about 500 quid and was about 85 quid customs
