Shipping a Guitar Japan to US thru EMS, please help

Hi,

I have an address in the US, and I would like to have a guitar sent there from Japan. Does the EMS loophole still exist? That address only receives, I can't have someone pay custom duties or other kind of special action.

Thanks!

Im not sure, but you can ship with some companies and just select the box that says 'sender pays tax' and that will deal with it.

I've never tried this, but explain the EMS loophole to me. What is it? I'll see if i can find out if it still it exists for you.

I only imported 2 from Japan this year, but no bills on either. You can't say never because I have gotten a bill after, but they're rare.
