That was my thought as well. But it might still be in Customs even tho they say no. Not sure Customs could check that all the time. I have called Customs when waiting for packages without them knowing much. But the tracking would be up and running as soon as it clears.

Re: buying rare ibby overseas/international EU thru paypal


Hi daemon

still nothing man...I contacted the seller and he said it sometimes can take more time than estimated. we came to the conclusion that its somewhere in the middle of the atlantic because if it was ground or air, it would have updated tracking somewhere along the line of transport, but on the ocean, there wouldn't be.

the seller said to wait until the 8 days have passed for the delivery range period, and if there are no updates by the end of this week, we would assume there is a problem, and try to fix it

my hope is that I have been very impatient and anxious about this acquisition so my perception of time has become a bit irrational along with my faith in the postal services efficiency lol, so yeah I still have another couple of days to "reasonably" wait and be patient, but if nothing happens by Thursday, I think im going to have to open a paypal case/dispute for resolution

however the seller has contacted me once a day and is responsive, and seems legitimate and quite understanding so I don't think its foul play on his end, I just think the international courier system is a bit lax.

thanks and ill update as soon as I know more

Just keep calm, I have bought a bunch of guitars from USA and shipping over seas sometimes takes a long time. Not fun when you are waiting but I think you'll have your guitar in a couple of days.

Yup keep calm... easier said than done I know

I once sent an amp I sold on evilbay to Australia from NY. It was supposed to take 14 days... It got there 60 days later!!! Thankfully the buyer was a very patient guy!

Hope you hear something soon man!

Yes the seller is responsive and have contacted you so that is a good thing. So just relax and i think you soon will have your guitar. As stated above oversea shipping can sometimes take a little longer. Tracking should/would come up soon, but it's not always an exact sience.
