Re: Online stores in the us

mus**iansfriend.com and music*23.com are out of the question as they dont shipout the products out of USA. I am hoping if someone can shed a light as to who shipped out guitar products internationally?

I'd never use that from Japan, unless it's cased. And most stuff sold used in Japan, isn't. The japanese pack for crap, because the have the best postal service in the world. Everything is handled with great care. It will not be once it leaves the country and gets to your country, where a flimsy gig bag thrown in a box is much finish damage and a broken neck before you get it.

Have never heard of such arrangement before. Wonder if anyone here have tried that before?

You know what! I might just do that. That Michael Kelly's Patriot Custom is giving me massive gas. Feels like exploding anytime soon

its an i'll scratch your back if you scratch mine kind of thing

it's not just ibanez - recently i found out EMG and Dimarzio strictly forbid their items being sold from the states to international markets.

Yes, this sucks.
It's incredibly hard to find good equipment here in Brazil.
And when you buy something from outside, you must pay a tax of 60%.
Damn thief government !!!

Re: Online stores in the us

Now why dont the online stores in the US ship internationally? They can easily boost their sales if they do so......thats very strange.
