    i am interested in the new limited edition PRS SE Bernie Marsden that has been released in Europe only. I found a good deal on one at Anderton’s In the UK. Have any USA members ever purchased a PRS overseas/from Europe? If so, how did it go? Did the guitar survive shipping? Any Customs issues? My apologies if these are silly questions, but I have never purchased from the UK before, but am considering it. Thanks!

    Typically the exchange rate makes it a little upside down...

    I would suggest you e-mail Andertons first and make sure they will ship to US.

    Thanks. Yes I did that and they do ship to the US at a pretty reasonable cost also.

    That’s cool! What do they advise about importing it into US? Any costs involved paperwork-wise?

    No, just a flat shipping cost.

    That’s fantastic! I wonder how they get round the restrictions.

    You’ll need to apply for a Lacey Act import permit once it’s enroute. Hopefully whoever you buy it from can advise if they have done it before. Anderton’s is one possibility - I would also try Peach Guitars.
