Thomann uk Edwards AL-166 price...

So they only have the AL-128 models now but I emailed them asking if they could order the pink sawtooth or blacky models. I got a reply saying they could, there would be a 5-6 month wait and it would cost me 1998 EURO...WHAT!? The al-128 only costs 1069 EURO and i could buy an ESP guitar for much less than 1998 euros. Anyone reckon they messed up?

Re: Thomann uk Edwards AL-166 price...

Possibly not a mistake, the Edwards are often liked and compared to the standard ESP line of guitars they are also Japan/Asian market exclusives mainly due to copyright issues, and arent available typically through western retailers...

Your cheapest option usually is importing from Japan, or possibly austrailia, Bmusic may have started selling the Edwards models at least most of them...

Failing that meestersparkle on that auction site used to have a good selection of Eddies available but they arent cheap...

Look around but dont expect to find one for a cheaper price than you could probably snag a genuine SV for...

Also afaik they are built in China then sent to Japan for final assembly inspection, possibly even the paintwork is done in one of the ESP buildings....
