    I tried the same, but many times the guitar gets stuck in the customs and if you pay all the duties and shipping the cost comes up to be almost the same, maybe a 2-3k difference. But if you bring it as personal baggage the difference is significant.

    U will have to pay Customs which is 37% on the price if you order it from US. be careful its a mess to deal with those guys and to get ur stuff on time and in a good condition

    And the rupee is 54 for a dollar. So the prices have already gone up exorbitantly....Wait for some time. let the dollar fall.

    I bought my guitar last year from US....So i skipped the customs..Overall i paid 1150$ for that. It came along with a Fender Hardshell case.

    The same stuff is being sold for 78K on bajaao.com.
