    That's the idea lol ... Give it whirl sometime. Some of the responses you get for why they can't give you the answer are quite entertaining. Sometimes they make shit up and pretty sure sometimes they actually get the answer

    I have bought (and occasionally still buy) many guitars from Japan. Things have changed radically in the past year or so, and now e-bay is crowded with many "drop shippers" - people who list items that are not in their possession. You can still trust some reputable vendors (such as Tokywax, Batfuk, Solemettere, Great Japanese guy) and the stores (TC Gakki, Ishibashi) who actually own the pieces they list, but it's easy to see the marketplace has been forever polluted by the others. E-bay (whom I tried to address the issue with) simply won't do anything as they make money anyhow - many "drop shippers" pay extra fees to prioritize their listings, and that's all e-bay cares about. In regards to shipping, EMS is usually faster than UPS ground and USPS, and used musical instruments should not be subject to importing taxes, as per US customs website. I hope this helps!

    I had a long chat with Ebay. I provided a link to this thread and gave them several current examples on Ebay
