I went up to Denmark St in London just a few years ago seeking a special purchase. The Stones recorded here and the Sex Pistols lived here! With a range of good guitar shops from boutiquey to more mainstream, viewing guitars was a real experience. I found the Ric 12 string at the first shop on the left, got a good deal and a Snark thrown in for tuning. Now I can get that real 1960s jangle!
