So I BOUGHT it!
He's a top chap and previously listed it for $2.8k on TM and $2.6k on FBMP, then dropped to $2.35k.
It's heavy at 4.6kg = 10.14lbs, but I think I didn't weigh it correctly.

Thank you.

Re: A guitar modeller to go with your Kemper Sir?

That’s insanely good. Wow.
Doesn’t beat the Kemper for profiling and patch storage but what a great gigging device for the odd pub or charity gig!

Re: Import duty and GST on a used guitar??

Send it to your home as “personal effects”, i.e. your pre-owned item that you’re shipping “home” and you may be lucky.
Make sure the sender has no eBay reference in the packaging.
It comes down to the paperwork.
If Customs chase you for proof of purchase, then roll the dice ...
