Where to buy pickups internationally?

Hello there. I need a place that will ship pickups overseas. Every single guy on Ebay doesnt ship outside the US and Canada (I wonder if anyone would notice if they did anyway).

So, are there any sites that will ship overseas? Thanks

Boyd's Guitar Warehouse on eBay is good. I've gotten most of my pups from there.

Sometimes, if you speak to sellers nicely, they will ship overseas.

Bottom line: always ask if you're interested in an item. Things like the shipping calculator and countries seller ships to are not always accurate.

Several online retailers ship overseas--look into those.
Just Google the pickups you want, visit the retailers listed and look for international shipping.
Some Amazon sellers ship overseas, too.

Edit--keep in mind that some items are only available to certain countries due to distribution rights.
Tell us what pickups you're looking for so we can keep our eyes out for you.

The reason they wont ship overseas, is because of their contract with companies like Dimarzio and emgs, they want to protect their other clients in your country...

The better way is to sign up to a forwarding company in the US. then you can buy whatever you want, they ship to the address in the US owned by the forwarding company and they post it to you. Even with all the extra costs, you still save money, and most of the time its quicker then ordering it in your own country. I waited for 3 months to get a pink set of paf pros from Australia. it took me 2 weeks to get camo top dominions with black pole pieces, sent from the usa. SHipped once with the us and then again to Australia.

Last time I checked one of those the service costed too much like to use it only once for one package. There are services within Ebay that will do that for as little as 5 dollars each package. Does it sound too fishy to you? The guys have lots of good reputation..
