You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

No its a guitar body just of a BYO website.


There are a hell of a lot of UK sites before you go ordering off the US:

AXESRUS
WD MUSIC
ALLPARTS UK

to name but a few. And yes you will be practically killed with taxes. You will be charged a customs fee which is about 4-5% of the value of the part you're ordering, then you will also be charged with VAT which as you know is currently 17.5% (not for much longer though, thank YOU labour! ). Well you might not be if you're lucky, but it's always a big gamble which is why you're probably better off ordering from the UK!

Order it from the UK or anywhere in the EU I just had to pay tax on some stuff I bought from the US and the tax in the end was nearly a third of the price of the item, the post office also charges an obligatory 6£ handling charge. So if I was you I 'd buy from the UK or take advantage for being in the European Union and buy from somewhere in Europe.

£120 then.

You get charged duty on the combined price. Duty will be 7-10% unless you declare what is inside AND get a specific item code for it.

So now its £130.

Then you get VAT on that

So now its £152.75

Parcel force will charge you £13 (it will be Parcelforce due to the size) for delivering it and collecting the Duty.

£165.75

So...what body do you actually want then?
