Cheers
Chris

You could try contact one like http://www.ibanezrules.com/index.htm or http://www.aampselectricguitarstore.com/dimarzio/index.html
ans ask if they can ship to you. Both speak of international orders so...

Then there was another Ibanez or JEM site that will take orders from plenty of customers, get a quantity discount and then have people in the US who front for the orders and send abroad. I can't recall the name of the site though.
The pros are that it's cheap and you can in fact get a DiMarzio straight from the US. The cons are that it will take weeks to summon enough orders to get the discount.
Maybe if you search the net you can find it. I'll tell you if I recall the name, I have it bookmarked on the other computer so I'll look when I go there.

thanks everyone. ive picked out 2 humbuckers and 1 single coil (along with a 5 way switch) and it comes to around £170... does that sound cheap or expensive for a set of 3 dimarzios?

It's mid-european pricing. Expensive! I ordered three DiMarzions from the US, kids cousine is coming home for christmas and she's bringing them. I think I gave right about $200 for three humbuckers (Breed bridge and Evolution neck + Bridge), which is about £90-95

EDIT: Didn't catch that there was a switch included. How much was it?

heh not that much then. You should try to buy the stuff from the US I think. Shipping is more expensive but roughly I'd say you can save £60-65. ohmy.gif
