    Hey guys, I'm trying to sell my Ken Smith to a fella' in the UK and I am wondering what is the best and safest type of payment I should accept and which type of shipping carrier do you guys use. I know Western Union would be quick and safe for payment, but it seems they would charge around $125 and I'd hate to have him pay that much just to send a payment.

    I've checked prices on shipping the bass and USPS has the best thing going for around $125 with insurance. Any experiences using the 'ol US postal route to overseas?

    Thanks.
