    As the title says you might have an idea about what I am actully looking for.

    Looking for a Hofner V63 to be exact. I live in Canada and i am looking at getting one now for christmas. But where I live where no one deals them, i have come to the conclusion i have to ship . So if there are any canadian users who know about a Hofner that is up for sale for a good price or an Canadian online store that would be great.

    Thanks,

    Don't mean to sound negative but our selection of online musical instrument stores in Canada stinks. I would suggest Ebay.

    I think Musician's Friend ships to Canada (but I'm not 100% on that) and they carry a couple of Hofners.

    The best prices i have seen and i do believe they ship to Canada is www.northcoastmusic.com . Since were talking about Hofner does anyone know who is the new US Distributor?
     
  6. www.pickofthericks.com sells Hofner and although they are in the States they ship to Canada. They have an excellent rep too.

    Steves Music in Toronto has a couple of Hofner 500/1s in Stock, I think one is a V63 it like about 40 ft up on the wall, but brand new. Im sure they would ship it to you I dont see why not ..

    If you want me to go down there + check it out pls let me know, Im downtown once a week and my office is very close, Im a '67 Hofner 500/1 player so I have some expereince ...

    Regards Rob
     
  8. I totally agree. It's frustrating seeing what looks like a good price even in USD, but by the time you add shipping, customs, tax etc. it works out to a pretty crappy deal.
