Buying guitar in Tokyo 2008/2/29 01:17
Hi , I will be playing in Tokyo soon , but don't want to bring my 20 year old strat, is this a good oportunity to buy a new guitar and bring it back to the UK (are there any restrictions), or would it be better to buy a cheap guitar and ditch it when finished?.

Buy a great guitar! 2008/3/2 10:30
Just go and buy the greatest guitar you can afford!! You will be surprised with the great, great prices Japan has for guitars. Try Ochanomizu area in Tokyo; dozens of guitar shops together. When you go back to the Uk, just donLt forget to bring your new guitar as hand luggage; and to say that you already had the guitar with you when you entered Japan, if youLre asked.
Cheers and donLt forget to show us your new baby!

Why play with a cheap guitar? 2008/3/3 20:37
Well, I suppose you're playing with an electric right? Then if you're going to Tokyo and planning to play, why would you do it with a cheap one? I have a Ibanez but it's an acoustic, I can vouch for it, it was reasonably cheap, and plays well, however, my electric it's an Paul Reed Smith, if you can find one in Japan, buy it, it's worth more than you think; in all aspects.
