Gibson Les Paul from Amazon
« on: November 15, 2012, 09:42:13 PM »
Guys, is it ok to buy guitars on Amazon.com specifically Gibson Les Paul? Some Les Paul there are cheap and I'm wondering if they're original. But I think they are original because it is not allowed in the States to sell imitations, am I right? If they are original, do they (cheap) sound great too? Are there Gibson distributors here in the Philippines? Your thoughts would be helpful. Thanx!

Of course I prefer this. But are there local distributors of Gibson Les Paul?

The problem with an Amazon badge on your package is that it is apparently a magnet of attention from Customs people. Even if the unit itself is cheaper, you're going to pay a significant amount of added costs from shipping, duties and taxes. Amazon sources their musical instruments from other stores anyway (MF is it?).

If you're bent on buying a Gibson USA guitar from outside the country, it'll probably be more fun to take a plane to Hong Kong and go to Tom Lee.

Why? Is it about discrimination or craving?  :)

what I love about Crescendo though is they're not strict when it comes to customers checking out the guitars. when I went there last tuesday, I was able to hold a SG standard and Les Paul 50's tribute and the staff was really cool with it.  :)

Bawal pumasok walang pera at credit card on hand.. struggle talaga lalo pa at accomodating ang staff to let you try out the top of the line models nila... :drool:  I almost sold a kidney to get the Les Paul I tested...mismo kasi!! :razz:
