I know this has come up before, but I wanted to make a public comment about how I beleive this unwillingness of people in the US to ship to Canada to be a form of discrimination. Please take this charge with a grain of salt. I have done DOZENS of transactions here on TGP successfully and I would say 9.8/10 I am buying from someone in the US or shipping a pedal to someone in the US. I've even had guitars shipped across the border with no problems whatsoever. I understand that individuals may have had bad experiences - I am one of them - but it seems more and more that people are unwilling to ship to Canada, and to me it is doing nothing but stifling the musical community, especially here in the Great White North. Although we do have a lot of great builders here (Empress/Diamond/etc.) the online community at guitarscanada.com is pretty limited in terms of quantity and selection of listings, especially in comparison to TGP. Again: bad experiences happen to everyone. I don't downplay this fact at all. I guess what I'm saying is maybe people should be willing to give shipping to us Canucks another chance. We're ravenous gear sluts just like you!
