Being a bricks and mortar company we often hear people say they can get what we sell cheaper on the internet.
Allow us to dispel a few myths…
1. If you’re buying one of our guitars or pickups from a UK-based supplier on the internet the product will either be second-hand, traded into the UK from elsewhere, or a copy as we have exclusivity agreements in place with our suppliers and luthiers.
2. Our guitars are the same price when buying from us as buying from our luthiers; whether buying direct or on their website. Occasionally we’re a little cheaper & occasionally we’re fractionally more due to the forex changing. However, you won’t be paying a forex charge to your bank or credit card nor shipping from Europe so we generally work out as cheaper overall.
3. Our pickups are the same price, or cheaper, than the same products offered on internet giants and, being priced in pounds Sterling, will not be subject to forex charges and will incur cheaper p&p.
What’s more you can talk to a human being, ask questions, get advice, read our blog and join conversations on our Facebook page. You can call into The Old Dairy and browse our gifts, pickups, and accessories in person. All our in stock instruments are available for you to try before you buy and if for some reason we don’t have what you want in stock we’ll ask our luthiers for one for you. Plus we occasionally run promotions (such as this month’s ‘All about the Bass’) which means that, for the duration of the offer, we are cheaper than elsewhere.
