    Mr KW's time would have been better spent teaching you to spell, rather than encouraging you into torturing other folk’s ears.

    A ukulele shop would probably do the trick.

    Well, Wally, if you are really serious the violin shop on Ekkamai should have one. They have most kinds of stringed instruments.

    just buy a kiddies guitar from Toys R Us.

    Most of them have a few tunes already stored inside so you wont even have to learn to play the thing, just press a button. and change the batteries once in a while

    I want one of those. (The gun that is) Plenty of places to buy them on the net, but a shop here would be easier.

    I intend to use it to deal with pests, by which I mean the cnut who wakes me up with his loudspeaker each morning selling his manky fruit from his fcuked up pick up.

    Mail order them in

    My mate has a paintball place in Chacheongsao where he does air soft there. You can by anMP5 for a decent priceon the net. No problem importing them for some reason.

    No idea, but I am looking to buy an accordion.

    After six years of hearing the things played in trad Thai music I finally saw one in a small Thai bar.

    They let me have a go, I hadn't picked one up in years but I was soon taking requests, found it was a great way to get free beers.

    A year ago they seemed to be the number one instrument among Thai teens. Now you can find them in almost any music shop in the shopping malls. They're probably 700-800 baht up. They even have them up here in nowhere's ville esarn.
