I'd really like to buy a guitar from somewhere in Abu Dhabi, where would people recommend in terms of range of guitars, quality and price?

I am looking for a sorta mid range acoustic, something like a Yamaha APX, so if anyone has seen anything like this around, I'd really apprciate you letting me know. 023.gif

thomson is the shop that sells yamaha stuff, its recently moved to electra st, al salam end. the other music shops are akm, one by the new refurbed adnoc at the corner of 5 and 3 but not sure if you can access it as thats where they are digging up the roads etc, or go to behind crowne plaza, another akm there.

Best place to buy a guitar is the Thomson shop in Ibn Batutta Mall(only 1 hr up the road) It has an amazing range of accoustic guitars and accessories(well amazing for the UAE) both for pocket and sound

Yes, if you know exactly what you want, be persistent, and the Thomsun shop here can have it sent down from Dubai...

Yes AKM is great, they carry Ibanez, but it's Thomsun that carries Yamaha (says DS # 1 anyway...)
