    I have all the "good basses" I need, but I jones for a "Frankenstein project" and the stuff on their sites seems like a great jumping off point. For example, this would make a great EB-6 with a little tweaking.

    Has anyone here imported basses like this, and what's involved with Tariffs/duties etc? Thanks in advance for any insight.

    I been researching China Bass, need to look for high reviews, so yo dont end up with a dud, I myself want something special and made personal, no wanting a Knock Of Copy , cost seem to be from 300- 800 depending on whistels and bells, case and shipping
