    Labor day sale, GC anniversary sale, 4th of July sale, Thanksgiving are some seasons where there are price-markdowns in US. Not too sure if it happens for musical instruments or not. You will have to keep checking the sites daily.

    You have quite a few options for delivery to India. UPS, Fedex are the safest since they offer point-to-point package-brokering services and shipment-tracking.Do talk to the shipper before.

    Delivering directly to India?? Don't try that unless you know the ins-and-outs of customs, and are ready to pay a hefty customs duty. Or u know someone in customs. I know of quite a few people who have been bitten.

    It would be excellent if someone you knew is in US and can play the guitar and try it out. These people do try to push store-display pieces and all the crap in shipping.
