    I have a friend who is buying a vintage, high-end, USA made bass from a Japanese party and having it shipped to the USA.

    Will he have to pay an duty fee or import tax on this? It is used, obviously, and originally from the 'States … so my thought is no.

    Anybody with experience in this area want to chime in?

    Thanks in advance for any input and assistance.
