I'm importing a guitar from the USA, where do I even begin?!

I'm importing a guitar from the USA, where do I even begin?!

Over the years since beginning the shop, the sometimes baffling language of importing goods from over the pond has become almost like a first language to me. Due to the nature of what I do here, working with other small businesses like guitar, pedal, string etc makers, means there are no big distributors to provide a UK price. The calculator has to come out a hell of a lot to figure out what everything will cost to my door and whether it will be affordable to do so. It's a tightrope walk at the best of times. But because of this I very often get asked by followers of the Home of Tone for a little advice with players looking to import a guitar themselves. As I do totally understand that it can be scary doing this yourself, making sure there are no nasty unexpected bills from HMRC etc, then I'm always happy to help the best I can! So here's a handy little reference guide I've put together which may perhaps help you if you're planning on buying a guitar from the USA!

Meet the player - An interview with R.J.Ronquillo

The last few years has seen the rise of YouTube as a incredibly immersive, influential, and powerful tool in the guitar world (among others too of course!). From providing viewers with what is essentially quality weekly TV programming revolving around our gear obsessions like the brilliant 'That Pedal Show' or 'Andertons TV', to in depth lessons and incredibly vast selections of demo, almost taking away the need to get your hands on the gear to try in a store for yourself, (almost!). This strong following on a versatile platform has resulted in a large number of talented players to get the spotlight their hard work deserves, perhaps where they otherwise may have gone unnoticed. One thing YouTube has certainly done is broaden your knowledge of talented players further than the odd guy tearing it up at the local gig venue or guitar showroom on any given weekend. YouTube has firmly made it's stamp on the guitar industry.
