    That is a very very high price even with insurance mate. You could get that a lot cheaper. Can you not collect it personally?

    I have bought a fair few MM guitars in UK Paul. Even with insurance i have never paid more that £25 shipping. My guess is that your seller is trying to make a bit extra on the sale via the shipping charge. I would not pay that in a million years mate.

    Thanks Jamie. It's not the seller charging me. I have to sort the courier out myself and that was the cheapest I could find with an insured value of £2000. Any suggestions where to try? As soon as you stick the insured value on there the price goes up a lot.

    I will, Just had a look on DPD's website. It's the same thing as soon as you add the full insured value they want to charge you £100. Probably not worth it then but knowing my luck it will get damaged in transit lol.

    Maybe the shipping charges have changed then since i last used them but i paid a quarter of that. The guitar is expensive so its piece of mind if you pay the £100.

    I guess so pay a £100 or risk it getting damaged. I know what will happen if I don't insure it lol. Thanks Jamie.

    Hi guys,

    It's finally completed. I paid for the guitar this morning and it will be on it's way to me on Monday. I should get it Tues at some point. Also managed to get a better price on shipping in the end via UPS. Fully insured and it ended up costing £45 so I was really happy with that.

    I'll post some pics as soon as she turns up. Thanks again for everyone's help much appreciated.
