Most manufacturers don't sell direct in the US and those that do (like Sony) charge you full list price which is always significantly more than the market rate for the product. About 80% of the time Amazon has the best prices on most things and if they don't carry it, Musicians Friend often has better prices than local retailers. If you have a quality local retailer (and keep in mind Guitar Center owns Musicians Friend) and their price is close, it may be worth paying the taxes (in the US you avoid sales taxes by purchasing on line) to buy local from someone who can answer questions etc.

We really need a Retailer sponsor. But there are so few around that can service a world wide group, or even a US group.
