Shipping Guitars to UK
July 9, 2004 4:42 AM Subscribe
I'm in the UK, and I keep seeing delicious guitars for sale over on eBay in the US at equally delicious prices, many of which are entirely unavailable over here. Aside from buying myself a ticket to the US, is there an easy way to get them over here without having to spend hundreds on shipping, insurance and customs duty? [MI]

I'm aware that if there were some carry-on courier service, it would probably have been nailed since 9/11, given that certain unscrupulous types would take malicious advantage of large parcels moving swiftly across the Atlantic.
But surely, there must be something? Some kind of mutual, trust-based network of US-UK human beings?
Otherwise, where's a good place to buy supercheap return flights to New York?
