Re: Canadian Dollar at $0.70 US

Going from Canada to the US, the duties are extremely negligible. I've sold to the US tons of times, and the guys barely had to pay any tax if anything at all. It was all fully declared/insured and some guitars have been like $8000 and the guys said they didn't get a tax bill which is odd.

Like DorianGrey said, we get mauled on taxes here. It's really really brutal.

Factor in the fact that it costs about $1,350 CDN to buy $1,000 USD - that $1,000 RG I am looking at on Rich's site will wind up costing me close to $1,700 CDN by the time it gets to my house. =(
Yikes!!!! That's rough!
