Hi: I am very disappoint with this practice without getting the complete information. I understand that sending a bass or a amplifier outside the CONUS USA is more expensive, for example my country Puerto Rico. But, sending, pedals, pickguards and other accessories it is not much more expensive. In fact you can buy a priority box for the same price. If safety is a concern ask for a paypal transaction. I'm having the same problem over and over. I offer to pay the shipping differences if there any. We use the same postal services and I always received the same answer. I can not force anyone to sell me, I understand that,but many are losing possible customer.
