If you get a friendly seller to mark the delivery as a "gift" you'll evade some tax costs

I had mine shipped from America through Ebay.
I didn't have to pay taxes on mine, and the shipping took around a week.

ye i had my schecter shipped from america, no taxes paid.

ask them to declare the guitar value to be under $1000.
Sincerely,
Shitstirrer

I've had an agile guitar shipped from US and the person was kind enough to put the price at $50 and say it was a gift, that way I didn't have to pay any customs charges
