Deffo look into how much itd cost in customs and taxes etc.

Though ive heard from a few offset fender forums that it does work out cheaper than buying the same model. If you're in the UK not sure about US.
#9
yea apparently customs taxes 1 out of 3 things it inspects..

after shipping im expecting the purchase to still be 100-200 bucks cheaper.. but i might have to bank wire them money which requires a fee.

anyone have any experience?

If you email meestursparkle (google it and you'll get their website, not just the ebay page) and ask them, they'll track down guitars for you.
#12
emailed them as well..

interesting thing happened.. ishibashi emailed me back and said they sold that exact guitar for 144000 yen which is 1570 us dollars

but ikebe gakki has it for 83800 before taxes and 87000 after.. both of which are under 1000 US dollars

help?

this. He is hands down the best dealer in japan to deal with that ships to US or other countries. He makes sure your item gets to you perfectly and quick. he triple boxed my J Custom butthe japanese mail carrier didn't even put a dent in the first box because of how great they are


^what are their policies with shipping and insurance? Meestersparkule has insurance to where you pay 1% of the item extra to get a full refund if something goes wrong.

wow this guy sounds legit. how long did he take to email you guys back?

not sure on ishibashi shipping polices or insurance yet.. they said the guitar was discontinued =( but im hoping its still around somewhere.. ikebe gakki has it on thier list of Jacksons and they've taken down 2 from the list in 1 day.

its 1 PM thier time so i hope someone is answering emails

Def pay attention to shipping and insurance details
