I plan on buying a used Gibson SG Standard off someone this week, but i'd be ordering it from the states and im in Canada. The guitar is not coming from a music store or anything, and i was wondering how much customs would get me for when it crosses the border.

The guitar is gonna be just over 600 as it is beat up, so what would the customs charge be on that?

Just say you went over the border with it when you were visiting.
Fire it up, let the engines roll!
It's time to burn it down!

Forever love it loud, yeah!

Have him ship it with a tag saying you paid 200$ for it.

Not that I am for breaking the law or anything, just saying.

Shouldn't NAFTA or some shit make you not pay haha.

The seller specifically said he won't declare a false value, although ive had that done for me in the past, so they should only be getting me with the 5%?

I was in the exact same situation a month ago for an amp. Because its made in the USA nafta protects you from duties BUT you will have to pay both PST and GST. Unless they use USPS as for some reason I never get charged extra for USPS.
