You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

In theory there is no lower limit. That said, most items under about £20 get classed as gifts. Much above that and it really is cheaper to find a UK or EU supplier.

Pretty sure they can charge one on anything, but ignore things under a certain value because it's not worth the effort.

You usually have to pay about 25% on top of the price of the product and the shipping costs.

It's £7 or less for the UK according to HMRC website, anything over that is likely to get taxed etc. Usually works out at around 30% by the time you add the couriers "handling fess" etc.
