Hi, I am getting a Takamine EG240 from the US. Check out the link for the description. I played through it recently and it sounds amazing. http://www.zzounds.com/item--TAKEG240/view--Natural My friend is in the US and will be hand carrying it from there in another month. Will he have to pay any duties when he is bringing it along. Maybe I can get someone to declare it as a gift. In that case what is the procedure. If somebody has done this already, please help me out.
