It's annoying as it was the best place to go to try out guitars to find one you liked.

They are all shut today I know that for certain. All staff have been told to go home and until they pay up what they owe they wont be reopening.

Yep - unless they're separate entities. If you buy from it then you will probably appear on the list of creditors but a long way down - way down below the tax man and banks etc and I think they'd be paid before you get your money or goods sad.gif .

Real shame - Sound Control were ok like OC said, friendly and a reasonable (for the UK) stock. Probably means Digital Village are now the biggest in the UK?

Cheers,
Tony
