This seems to apply equally to pedals, amps, etc. but I'm looking to by a bass so I thought I would put this thread here. Reading around TB most of the prices are quoted in US$. The thing is that when I convert that into UK£ they tend not to match up with the prices that I see here in London. A couple of examples: Ibanez SR900TK US = $675.00, UK = £549.00 ($960.00) Fender Highway 1 Jazz Bass US = $699.99, UK = £599.00 ($1045.00) So what's going on? Am I looking in the wrong places or is gear really just more expensive here in the old world? If it is then would I be better off buying online in the US and having stuff shipped over? Advice from either side of the pond would be greatly welcomed.
