Because Alvarez guitars are more or less impossible to find in the UK, I'm looking to import one from the US sometime soon.

Does anybody from the UK have any experience of this? What are the import charges with customs and duties like?

Also, more towards the US side of peeps, where are the best places to buy from? Been recommended music123 and musiciansfriend so far.

Thanks for any replies
