Not too sure if this is the correct forum feel free to move if not. I know there are several online retailers from Japan for CIJ's. But, are there any other retailers where you could purchase a good quality instrument from other countries at a good price. Considering USD versus other currencies. Can you purchase a bass from S. Korea? S. America? Is a Warwick cheaper in Germany? and take advantage of the exchange rate & hopefully the shipping won't kill you.
