    Hi, Here is the problem i live in the U.K. and i can't find anyway to get hold of this bass (Fender Geddy Lee jazz bass)!!!! Why oh Why didn't they make this bass avalible to the U.K. Market?

    Can anyone please tell me where i may get one from?

    If it's a U.S. Dealer they have to be selling them at a VERY good price, as i live in the U.K. , and would have to fork out a small fortune on shipping.

    HELP!!!!!!

    Why dont you ask those Japanese guys why they get all the crazy stuff?!!?!?!?!?!!!

    The one thing I really trully hate about Fender is that they dont make all their products available to everyone!

    Blah

    Peace

    I noticed that about Fender. The Jamerson sig P wasn't available over here in the States, but it was in the UK.

    Is it really to their advantage to do things this way?

    Id imagine that making all their products available everywhere would increase sales to the point that the extra amount spent getting the products out there would be more than compensated for.

    When you enter the site you can choose the right flag. When you choose it, the site adjusts prices with the right actual taxes, so the price are correct. Cool, isn't it?

    Hi, I orginaly ordered it from THOMMAN but it would take till the end of October to get it in Stock! The price was quite good £580. I canceled the order.

    Hi, Has anyone from the U.K. ever ordered any bass from the U.S. Musicians Friend or Bassnw? How much did the import duty cost?
