Where is a good place within Canada to pick up some replacement parts for a LP Studio. Pickguard, pickup mounts ect?? Kind of tired of the raping I get from the couriers bringing good over the border.

Did you try Long and McQuade? I've found their prices to be pretty reasonable compared to importing from the US, when you add freight etc.

Long and McQuade? The same Long and McQuade that tried to charge me five bucks each for string (through body) ferrules? Hahaha.

I figured if they charged that much for those, a Gibson stop tailpiece came to about 600 dollars. Without the posts. L&M is a ripoff for pretty much everything. And good luck getting someone to treat you with any sort of respect unless you're wearing a suit.

Sorry. That was kind of a rant gag-reflex thing. L&M does that to me.

There's going to be a big price difference between factory Gibson parts and import parts. L&M isn't a discounter (by any stretch of the imagination), but I've found their OEM pricing pretty fair IMO. Stuff like knobs, switch tips, etc. I don't think I save anything bringing OEM out of the states.

If you don't like the raping you get from couriers, buy them locally...seems simple enough. A LP Studio pickguard is less than $30 at Musicstop...pickup mounting rings are $9.00...for authentic Gibson parts....aftermarket stuff is even cheaper.

Glad we have a musicstop employee on board

I feel the same. But if your looking for an online store try http://musiciansfriend.com.If not, than I know a place near brampton that sells guitars for really cheap, but they are still pretty good. If you dont live near there than I cant help you much.
