HI all! Thanks in advance for your help and comments.

I am sure many of you have purchased on But, have you made a purchase from an international seller? Furthermore, has anybody bought a Gibson Custom Shop guitar and navigated the IMPORT FEE/DUTY question.

I am looking at a custom shop guitar from a reputable seller in Australia but can't seem to get a firm handle on the extra costs related to import/duty into the United States (Chicago area)

Typically, I have seen 5-10% of the value of the guitar as a fee.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
