SEAN IF you where to do this deal again how would you do it. cheers mate MIKE. PS don't let tommy play it he might break it.
Can't beat the Silver Series man, I love mine to bits! But yeah now that the Maton is breaking in it's warming up and I'm really enjoying playing it. If I pass by the BHS alley I must give you a shout!
Buying over the internet without having seen a guitar would usually have put me off, but I'd heard so many good things about the EBG808 series that I just decided to go for it. I bought mine from Hank's Guitar Shop and it came to just under Â£1200 altogether. Big dent in the wallet now but I know it's a guitar that will last me a lifetime!
