    Breaking my massive lurk streak to see if anyone has any feedback on ordering from Musik Productiv? They have what looks like a crazy good deal on a b-stock/returned Friedman JJ, but I've never really heard of them before.

    Seen a few mildly concerning reviews on trustpilot, and I'm also a bit worried about shipping a really expensive amp internationally (I'm in the UK and it looks like they're based in Germany).

    Should I throw nearly £3k into the void?? :erk:

    Yep, been ordering stuff from them for a couple years now. Excellent service and free returns too (although I'm not sure about the UK returns :))

    Along with Thomann my fav German gear suppliers :)

    I have bought from thomann, musicstore and musik produktiv for years. They never gave me any kind of problem regarding customer service, returns or answering emails quite fast with any question.

    I have read some people from the USA that are not happy bout them, but I assume managing a refund/return overseas is not the same.

    Never had any problems with any german retailer. I tend to make the biggest purchases at Session though, because I find them to have the best deals and they do price matching.

    I've had a Haar from them, no issues other than it wasn't amazingly well packed - it's "lightly aged" anyway so a bit of bouncing round in a loose box surely only added to the overall aesthetic.

    The wrong serial number and spec showed up on my invoice but the guitar I got was the one I ordered.

    I also got an Ibanez SRC6 to try out, didn't like it and sent it back, no quibbles, no problem.
