Havent heard him play in person but I believe he is a pretty handy plucker, as it were.  :D
Can you master this one before we meet again please Mr. Blue, and then teach me how to play it.

I'm sure they are a couple of warm up songs for maestro MigV6 as he spanks the plank. :y :y :y

Well Well . . .not from U.S. but bit the bullet & ordered a "Replica Gibs*n 335"  from China around 12th July. 

204 with free courier delivery  ::) ::)

Feedback was good from USA buyers.    Thursday got a letter from Royal Mail at Chelmsford  saying item has cleared customs with  vat & import duty totalling 27.   Had to pay this online
 to RM then they will deliver it on Tuesday

Could have had it today but they wanted

 an extra 12 for a Saturday delivery  >:( >:(

So all in all the import duty etc. was not too bad at all .

Although have not actually got the guitar in my hand yet  ;D ;D ;D

Will update on Tuesday  :y

Came all the way from China with no problem  . . .once "Royal Fail" get involved . . .nightmare  >:(

Paid the duty etc online on Friday  . . . could have had it Saturday for 12 extra . .  refused that  . . .so they said Monday . . . no one at home to receive it on Monday so we agreed on TUESDAY.

Nothing by 5pm  . . .called the number  . . .they said   " cannot be delivered until the  27 is paid"

I said  . . yes paid that on Friday  . . .He said  "oh yes . . . .oops    . . .someone has not processed that"   "will have to be tomorrow or Thursday now"

Cannot stay at home another day  . . .hoping they "might"deliver it . 

Effing useless Parcelforce >:( >:( >:( >:(

Finally got it . . .  very well packed . . . no case as it showed in the ad . . .guitar itself is very well made  & looks very nice . . .but the hardware fitted is absolute sh*te . .. needs a new bridge (won't adjust) tuners are rip off copies of Grovers. So basicly it is indeed 200 quids worth  :'(
Once I have spent 50 -70 on it it will be a very decent instrument.  I hope.    Should have just brought an Epiphone 335 from UK stock  :'( :'( :'( :'(

Epiphone tuners are also cheap shite. I have an Epiphone Les Paul, with a pair of expensive humbuckers on it, the only thing that let it down was the awful tuners. I bought some good quality ones a year or so ago. May well have been Grovers, cant remember tbh.  :-[ ;D
Will have a look when Im home tomorrow - if I remember.  :D
