    Damn, that's my dream bass right there. Can the bass still not be shipped back to the US (its Country of Origin) because of the rosewood?

    Correct. According to Dave at Ultimate Basses, CITES has made the import/export of Rosewoods for the average person very complicated. Big companies such as Fender, Taylor and PRS have the staff and resources to obtain necessary paper work to allow shipment of Rosewoods. I have heard of guitars getting stuck in Customs for months because of improper documentation (private sale items) .

    I am fine selling this bass to any non Canadian resident. It's just the shipment outside Canada that I can't do. There is no sales tax so that might make a drive to Toronto worth the trip.

    :-( Worst 9 words in history, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help".

    Congrats! Been lusting after that bass for a year. I’m a CITES casualty.

    Hi Russ

    Thank you so much brother, for purchasing this Nordy. While I am sad to see such a beautiful bass go, I do have a new bass on order for which the balance will be due soon. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you on this sale. Thank you for your prompt payment too! Enjoy your new Nordy vj5.
