    Just curious to know if any of you guys had any problem in the past or got a bass ceased at any border due to the CITES regulation.
    So far, I've received a bass from Japan, one from Brazil and also shipped one to Canada with no sweat.
    I also know a store who ships overseas constantly and they say they've never had any problems at all.
    Also on Ebay I see a lot of basses for sale that offer international shipping with no problem.

    I meant shipping instruments directly without an application.

    gotta on some level, admire the 'nad it would take to try and smuggle my Brazilian RW Sadowsky fret board around undocumented. I sure don't have it
