Importing a Jem from UK to US


Has anyone imported a Jem, or other high end guitars from the UK to the US lately? I'm trying to figure out what my real costs would.

The best I can tell right now there is a 0.05% import tax. How do they determine the value to tax on? Are there other hidden fees/taxes/duties that I'm not thinking of?
