    I find myself needing small stuff such as trem springs but I hate paying more shipping than what the item cost.

    Anyplace got free shipping or reasonable

    For parts, I've found the best shipping prices on ebay.

    Definitely eBay. Sometimes the item is priced lower than normal and free shipping is offered. I guess that tells you how low the vendor's cost must be.

    If you have Amazon Prime it's probably worth checking Amazon. Sometimes a company will have their deliveries "fulfilled" by Amazon and you can get the Prime shipping rates.

    Yes, check Amazon for most anything these days. I just bought a hard to find roller bridge there for a guitar I'm working on for a guy. It was through an "amazon store" & has the best price (& free shipping) of anyone including Ebay.

    I just bought a whole mess of stuff on ebay for a project the other day, the new shopping cart feature is helpful too. I used anthillmusic and thestratosphere for a tele parts build. Very good pricing.

    WD Music Products has a Priority Mail shipping option which is usually cheaper than UPS for small items.
