    Hey i checked out the site mentioned by

    And they have kewl products .I was looking for left handed guitars and they have plenty of them in stock.So u can imagine the variety for right handed ones.

    Also they tell u the shipping charges when u order itself.
    I was looking for an epiphone les paul special II and it was quoted at 9k along with shipping charges.

    Now i have one question before ordering???

    Do i need to pay customs for it or not???
    ANd how much will the customs come to ... i mean how much will i need to shell out for customs???

    Yes, expect 35% for customs! You can get lucky and get 17% i think

    Ok 35% means it will come around 12k total for an epiphone les

    Now tell me one more thingy...
    first i too feel sorry for such a stupid question:
    They will courier it to my shipping address.then what happens???
    It will get delivered to my home address and then where am i go and pay the customs..I mean where does the customs come into scene.

    Can anyone(specially shreyas) tell me the entire flow of the delivery after it leaves

    There wont be a problem with Music123..they'll definitely ship it. Just make sure its insured if you're worried. Your problems will start only after its been delivered to india. If its insured it'll probably get to you without a problem. You'll probably get a call from customs saying they have a package for you then you'll have to tell them what it is and stuff. After paying the customs its yours..

    1.Music123 is known for good stuff on the espboards. Ive never ordered from them (i wont cus of my friends in bmusic)
    2.The guitar will be sent to India via x courier. And customs will take it into inspection. they will assume stuff that it could be but whereas guitars are concerned it flows thru fast. They just slap a 35% on one notice and they will send the Notice to your house. Take printouts of the guitar and the price and go to customs. They will ask you what/why/how and then they will send you home.

    A few days later your nearby post office will come with the guitar. And you pay them.


    3.I emailed music123 a week ago asking about shipping amps to India, that guy was pretty brisk and told me no , we dont send a few brands to India etc etc...

    Ok.That seems pretty convincing.
    I will first mail them and then order.
