    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.
