• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

Buying a USA made guitar from Europe questions?


Supporting Member
I'm considering buying a new USA made guitar from a dealer in Europe, which I've never done previously, and was wondering if there are any "Fee traps" that aren't apparent with such a purchase?

I understand there shouldn't be any Customs fee's but are there any Euro sales tax, brokerage fees, etc.. that would be tacked on to the sale when buying a USA made guitar from a dealer in Germany? I know Reverb & Ebay are adding State sales tax to purchases but is there a German sales tax tacked on too?

I got burned one time with Canada with a "brokerage" fee but I don't remember the details and didn't want any surprises.
