    Question for all you import-exporters out there. I want to buy a guitar from the US and have it shipped to Europe. The guy I'm buying it from went to USPS, they said it was too large to ship it. UPS quoted it on 5-600 euros for shipping to europe. Anyone has any suggestions on how to ship it...

    Okay, I got my quote back from the Carvin dealer over here and the cost of the guitar through the dealer is 189,000 yen. That doesn't take into account that as of April 1, the consumption tax will be going from 5% to 8% over here (which means the guitar would cost over 200,000 yen). When I ran...

    I found no advice on this with the search option and was not sure where to post, but I'm sure someone who knows better than me will see it. When having a guitar shipped in cold weather, how long do you wait to open the box and how long do you wait to open the case? This is an Ibanez solidbody...

    After almost 5 wonderful years in the US, I got a call back to good ol' Europe (Switzerland) coming January/February. I am now faced with the problem of how to get my beloved "souvenirs", including my Rich-ified '07 RG847FFA, '94 S540CG, my two PRSi, a MusicMan Axis, a Fender Strat, and my...

    I read on IbanezRules that USPS package size limits can be avoided if, somehow, setting up the shipping through PayPal. Does anyone know how the procedure goes, and how reliable it is?

    Hi, I just ordered a used JS1000 from a music store in Memphis, TN. It's scheduled to ship out tomorrow. I live in WI and the Midwest is going through a heatwave this week (90's+ with humidity all week). Should I be concerned about the guitar's safety? Any suggestions? 3-4 days in a hot...

    Right, I bought a UV from a guy in the states and he's left it to me to chose how I want it shipped because I'm a bit fussy after something earlier this year. I bought a JP6 earlier this year and the guy sent it out the day I paid for it, by USPS. He gave me the tracking number and for maybe...

    I just bought another guitar last night and the guy doesn't have a case to ship it in. He offered to separate the body from the neck, which I think is the way to go... What do you guys suggest?

    Hi all, I'm hoping to ship a guitar to the US, it's quite a large acoustic guitar. I've tried parcelforce - they won't ship to the UK parcels over 1.05 meters in length, so that rules out basically all electric guitars. I've tried parcel2go, they won't offer insurance on Guitars over the value...
