Haar was the first one I thought of, and the first one you listed.This thread's inspired by the "Foreign Sellers On Reverb & Their Outrageous Prices" thread, which mentions that US-made gear is much more expensive in Europe, for reasons explained there.
But I'm thinking that we also have some builders here, in Europe, that should, at least in theory, be cheaper than importing from the US. Would it be worth it to collect information about them? I hope so. We can add them to the list, discuss their workmanship, or any other aspect of this that can be politely debated.
We can also add luthiers as in people / shops that do a good job with neck resets, refrets, etc.
I did post this in "Guitars in General", but we can discuss any kind of gear made in Europe. If this makes my thread ill-placed, I would kindly ask someone who can move it to move it in the appropriate section. I've not been able to figure out a better one, sorry.
Of special note is that now with Brexit, buying from the UK has become complicated. I've noted to my dismay that sometimes it's cheaper to buy from the US than Britain with added VAT + customs.
