Sydney Guitarists -where do you buy gear locally?

For the life of me I can't find high end ibanez dealers or decent amp dealers anywhere. Where do you guys get your gear from?

Is Australis music the only connection we have to quality stuff??

Re: Sydney Guitarists -where do you buy gear locally?

Australis music is the sole distributor of Ibanez in Australia, if anyone can get anything way of Ibanez, then it has to be them.. If you check with them they should tell you a list of guitar stores in Sydney that stock Ibanez gear.. Alas I never buy gear in Australia. Its over priced and there is never any good range of gear...

Also known as "Clowntown".

If you want an Ibanez contact Rich Harris from Ibanezrules.com, better price and better setup.

What amps you looking for?

The whole of Annondale? or just the street?

Jacksons rare has some great stuff, got to try Dr. Z stuff too, (btw AMAZING amps!)

I like it, but some of the stuff is just never going to be sold.

Re: Sydney Guitarists -where do you buy gear locally?

I really find Australia Pathetic when it comes to any degree of musical equipment. Stock/price. Nothing beats US E bay, even with the shipping cost it still is usually cheaper also everything is on E bay I mean we pay 1000$ for an Ibanez rg350dx when it is a 300$ in usa/ 4-5000$ for J custom Ibanez when they are 2000$ on US E bay.

Yeah Australia sucks for prices and with the Aussie Dollar on Steroids at the moment there has never been a better time to buy up from the USA

Billy Hydes/Allans Camperdown has a few Ibanez in the shop. I've seen JEM, JS1000, PGM100RE, RG3550, etc... They've got few good amps selections as well, like Mesa, ENGL, Marshall, etc.. maybe not the boutique ones though, I don't think you'll see Cornford or something like that in there.

The most important thing is they let you try it.

Yeah i just go to music shops, abuse all their gear, then buy from America.

Musos Corner in Newcastle has a good selection of Ibanez guitars and a nice selection of amps... but their prices are still through the atmosphere (didn't think the roof was high enough)

Toodles!
