    Hey ppl,
    I just joined IGT, glad to be here, anyway i was planning of buying an ESP MH50 from music23.com, i bought my korg ax1500g from them so they're pretty reliable and safe but the korg was brought from US to here by a relative who now won't come for god knows how long, so i was just considering it getting internationally shipped, i just wanted to know

    1.Will packaged goods be charged customs through a reputed courier service
    2 How bout if i told my sister who lives there to buy it for me , remove all the price tags and then send it over to here

    I guess the shipping will amount to a lot, (wish i knoew someone from the us who wouldn't mind getting a guitar with a hard case )
    :(

    Dude ur right. Shipping IS gonna cost a lot. Around $20 least. Unless the merchant has a special offer that above certain amount, the shipping is free. And secondly, if something is couriered, then there is no customs charges on it. But i would suggest that ur sis gets it there, and then send it there. It could shave a couple of bucks off the lot.

    @ PF : PM me your email and i'll show you the condition of a guitar which came be Courier.. Then think about buying it online and getting it shipped....

    Couriers do have customs.. Who said no customs on courier?

    @ Mysore Boy!!! Jackson DXMG for 27k is not worth it man.. Got for RR3 or RX10D instead.. Also if you are looking at buying a guitar in India, SWEET DREAMS... And If you really really wanna buy it here for for a Custom made one..

    " Aria dekho , mast maal hai".

    Aria?? LOL..

    Someone mentioned that Shipping would cost 20$.. I still cant stop laughing.. At 20$, you can get a pack of Plectrums Shipped.. The guys quoted 100$ shipping for a Jackson NEck.. LOL...
