It's always useful to know where people live when they are asking for advice on buying guitars. If you are within reach of Warrington you could not do better than to visit Tony Nugent.dandan wrote:Whereabouts in the UK are you? If you're anywhere near the Northwest Nugent guitars have a few around your price point which would be worth checking out.
In the south of England, Paul Gregory (Maestoso Music) is another source of good used guitars. He is currently advertising guitars by Pablo Requena and Antonio Raya Pardo which are just above your price bracket. Remember that with both Tony and Paul you don't have to add the dreaded VAT to the price shown. I have bought guitars from both of them and can assure you that they will make parting with your money a real pleasure.
