Sorry fellow Cumbrian, I should've got in earlier but here the info you need anyway.
Trip North on M6 to Carlisle = http://www.omegamusic.co.uk/
They're Ibanez dealers. If they don't have the guitar you want in stock they'll order it for you.
T E B A Y junction on M6 (Head for Orton) = http://www.madmonksmusic.co.uk/
Again, Ibanez dealers and can order you what you need.
^ The truth is these guys don't sell many guitars so you can understand why they're prices might not be as good as somewhere like GAK etc. Also don't expect any informed advice from either of these two shops. As freindly as all the staff members/owners are my Wife would be able to give you more information on the Ibanez brand.
Just for good measure,
Short trip South on M6 = http://www.promenademusic.co.uk/cata...tric%20Guitars
These guys don't stock Ibanez but they do have some intersting guitars. They know exactly what they're talking about and if you ask them "what's the best you can do for me?" you'll often find a good sized discount.
I used to live in Manchester so I've had plenty of experience with Sounds Great. The last time I was there (roughly Aug 05) I vowed I would never go back again. I spent ages being ignored (This was realy awkward as I'd taken my Father along with me to have a look and on the drive there I'd been telling him what a good shop it was) When I did ask to try out one of the PRS guitars it was suggested to me that I couldn't afford it (??) after more waiting and being made to feel second class they let me try out a Peavy amp with some sort of Jackson. As soon as they heard I could play they were all over me and Dad like a rash with the "hard sell" tactics.
As we were leaving Dad passed me the keys and told me to drive home. I might have looked a little scruffy but it was worth their rudeness to see they're faces as I climbed into dad's 911 that they'd been staring at through the window (couldn't get the seat adjust too easily though and had to pretend I'd dropped something. That took a bit of the shine off it though)
Anyway, the three shops above should get you started with some "local shops for Local people". If you need more info give me a shout.
