Just got a ‘57 Goldtop from gregsguitars.de in Germany. Good prices, free shipping and (unknown to me at the time) put the value on the box as €600 so next to no tax when it arrived. Well worth a look.

Wow, that's great to know. His YT channel has had some really cool guitars. Pity I can't really watch it, they all blur together into something I can't really enjoy.

Yeah, I actually don’t like his playing very much. He does have some cool gear though.

Those are strange; they have a clear top coat over the relicing so they feel perfectly smooth to the touch. However they're not bad guitars at all.
