Topics I've Started
Yesterday, 05:25 PMI just got an email asking how much to ship the guitar I'm selling to the UK. I politely declined. I only ship to the lower 48, which is hassle enough!
It's an interesting question though. What is the standard for shipping a guitar from US to UK, and what's the typical price (say, from the west coast)? [I don't think the ~ $600 value of my guitar would justify the cost of shipping anyway.]
And yeah, I've seen all the talk about the extra hassle with the "rosewood restrictions," which I ain't gonna worry about because... I only ship to the lower 48.
But for those who ship international, that's not the end of it, is it? Customs? What's the story there?

31 March 2017 - 08:06 AMI notice up on reverb is a 2003 EF500PNS Masterbilt, which is a 'prototype' solid maple back and sides EF model. I had its twin for a while, which was numbered a couple ahead of this one. (I have no association with this seller.) Mine was also in dead mint condition. They never made any more after those two, to my knowledge, though they had a great run of DR's, EF's, and AJ's through 2011. (I'm keeping the EF500RAVS.) This maple EF is priced rather high, but they've reduced the price once, and they may be receptive to reasonable offers.
09 March 2017 - 04:27 PMI was just pulling out a number of guitars, one of which was my EJ160E Lennon signature. I love this guitar! You can't get these anymore, although you can get the same guitar, "limited edition," without the Lennon sig. This is one lesser-expensive Epiphone that seems to have increased in value by about 50%, seeing how a couple sold on ebay for up in the $600 territory. I can't believe I haven't yet had a photo shoot with my pristine condition EJ160E, just drooling over the ad photos, which looks like it still had the plastic on the pickguard....
25 February 2017 - 12:50 PMI just loaded up a new track on soundcloud, but then couldn't get it to play. I waited a while, it still wouldn't play. Then I tried playing a piece I'd uploaded months ago - it wouldn't play. Anybody else having trouble getting soundcloud to play anything?
