Import tax on J-Custom?!?!?
I have a friend who owns an old RG with the wizard I profile on his neck and he decided that that profile was for him. He wasn't happy when he realized that Ibanez generally only make guitars as thin as the wizard II so he did a bit of research and found that the J-customs still have that legendary wizard I profile. Anyways he bought the guitar, i tried it along with his old RG and i have to say that ive fallen head over heels in love also with this profile. The guitar from head to toe rocks in every possible sense. If the neck was made out of mahogany and there was another tone control i would probably die and go to heaven. But regardless its damn sexy and i want at least one!!!
However, ikebe gakki seems to sell these guitars abroad, I'm in the UK and was wondering what sort of tax hurdles i might need to jump? The guitar seems to be about a 1000 pounds just buying it and then i have no idea how to calculate possible VAT and import tax hurdles........
Ive done the usual task of "google(ing) it", and alas i have come up with naught in the way of answers. Just lots and lots of possible variables i "may need to consider". Anyways i really REALLY hope someone can help me out with this,
