london retailers?...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by madfiddler, Mar 20, 2006.


  1. I'm struggling to find anywhere that has a rick 4003 in stock...I have serious GAS but I'd be stupid to buy before trying right?!?!...trouble is at around a grand noone seems to stock them....I understand the need for retailers to keep money invested in stock as low as possible, but it is annoying when any shop you visit only has basses in the 200-400 pund range!

    I figured that there would be a higher concentration of places in London that I might be able to get my hands on one and that almost dfeinitely there'd be people here that would be able to recommend shops in london (preferrably central) that I could try.

    I know there is the House of Guitars (bass centre) but where else?

    Sorry If I posted this to the wrong forum wasn't sure where best to put it.

    all help appreciated :)

    thanks

    If you take a look in some of the stores in Denmark Street I'm sure you'll find one!
     
  3. +1. I'd be very surprised if you could go round all the shops in the denmark street area and not find one.

    I would go to Ealing and visit Peter Cooks guitar world. They have six 4003's in stock, including one in Montezumer Brown (my ltd edition favourite colour) for £899, a Blueboy for £959, and a jetglow and fireglow models for £950. All are priced with case and are good for the UK. Also, the Flying Pig is around the corner and they also stock Rics and likely to have one to try.
