I had a thought and I figured I'd throw it out there for some feedback? If basses made afar (like Warwick or Jerzy Drodz) are cheaper in their native lands, could a person save a buck or two by buying from a dealer in said native land and having it shipped to the U.S.? Naturally there would be some tax and duty and what-not, and of course... shipping. But if all that totaled a few hundred bucks and you could get the bass for, say five hundred less than retail in the states, you'd come out ahead. Anyone ever tried this or looked into it?
