Dawsons are great, I phoned the Leeds shop for advice and ordered online, arrived in two days.... I buy the majority of music related items from Dawsons as no one can beat them on price and service!!
The only downside I think is because it's such a slim build compared to other instruments, the sound is not the loudest. Via an amp, no problem (especially through an effects pedal....I sound like Jimmy Page!) but on it's own, don't expect it to be loud.
Other than that, worth every penny (and more!)
