Hey fellow TBers, I live in sunny Queensland, Australia, where the new bass market is a little bit pricey. A new Stingray retails at $3100 AUD. I can get this for about $1700 from the states, without Australian warranty of course, + shipping + customs fees. Unfortunately, customs fees are a lot over here, so that raises the price a bit. I can get the stingray down to a deal of $2400 in australia, where importing it eventually comes to about $2100-2200. so $200 - 300 for a warranty isn't that bad for me. But when I could be hypothetically saving $600 on a stingray, I start to hate the customs import taxes very much. So, a couple of questions today. Would I have to pay tax on used goods, and Is there anyway I can get cheaper basses in australia. I could get them labelled as gifts, but retailers don't seem to like doing that. Help!
