Nice looking product but wow their website gives me a headache! They must have set it up in 1996 and not changed it since then 8O . Way too much text. Took me a while to find the pricing.

Yes, it is a bit of a mess, and could do with a refresh. But a valuable resource for Wind Synthesis

I noticed quite a few companies do that. I was trying to get hold of an Orangewood guitar but they sell exclusively in the USA and won't ship to anywhere else.

I assume it is all down to delivery costs and the fact that we would need to pay vat and customs duty which would make products prohibitively expensive. I wonder if that will change if we ever manage to get a trade deal with the USA post Brexit :think:

Agreed, but it's not just about buying it, it's the service backup and spares/consumables availability that needs to be in place.

it needs a franchised Dealership or similar, to reassure customers . . . .

I think that is probably the main issue. Service, spares and so on. Getting a distributor in the UK to take it. Loads of variables. Probably too much hassle. The US market is huge and a business can easily grow and sustain itself there without the added headache of exporting instruments and parts.

Orangewood guitars are sold directly by the company to the customer and online only. There is no distributor or dealer to hike the prices. If they were to sell outside the USA it would bump the prices up by quite some margin.
