    It's not a problem fitting them, you just need to make sure you get all the bits as I believe everything (blades, stays etc) is sold seperately.

    there's alot of drm on the camera app, which essentially means you lose most camera functions/quality if you do root it as far as I know. I haven't felt the need to root mine. It is a bit of pita to disable all the sony apps tho... otherwise I'm happy with mine

    I got the z3 compact from clove, fast delivery, and I'm pretty happy with it, I'd recommend getting charging dock, or magnetic charge cable off ebay cos removing the port cover is annoying.. also I'm worried it might fall off it's tether...

    I keep getting a popup box in the top right corner of my screen, which links to a Techcrunch "just published" page.

    I'm sure I haven't consciously signed up to this, and it's bugging me. How do I get it to fuck off?

    in safari? go settings>notifications then deny or remove tech crunch

    Meh. I've had worse guitar shop cuntage. Worst one I can think of right now was taking a Big Muff Pi into Andy's (as was) for repair. I came back to pick it up and found it for sale in the window. Classy.

    Also they sold 2 Telecasters on commission for a friend of mine from the states and never paid him.

    Oh and when I bought my main/only/lifelong Tele from them in 2001 I haggled a price with the sales child, shook on it then wandered off to look round the shop. I was in earshot when he started bragging to Andy what he'd managed to get for it. I paid it. Like a cunt.

    Oh and once bought a crappy Tanglewood acoustic from them in the late 90s cos I needed an acoustic with a pickup in a hurry for a gig. They gave me the big blah blah speech on the sale. Brought it back to trade/sell a couple of months later and got the "where did you buy this piece of shit from" speech. I was pretty immune to both by then.

    Looking back, I can't believe I ever put up with that shit but I wasn't a total sucker and shopped around. I went with Andy's because of all the cunts on that street they still had the best stuff and best (post haggle) prices. I'm fucking glad they went bust though cos if they hadn't I might have put a burning bag of dog poo though their door eventually. The cunts.

    The internet may have killed of a lot of shops... but it's killed off a lot of shit shops and has done wonders for customer service in the ones that remain. Those gems are few and far between and I remain loyal to all of them.

    Angel Music = rad squared
    Chandlers = sweet guys

    Any more good ones? I'm struggling.

    I've always had good service in regent sounds and they are pretty competitive in prices, one if them looked up sounds live's price for some no caster pickups and beat their price saying he hates em....
