ok cool good tip!
I go often over there, so I guess I can just bring it with me once I find one.
Hows the Aussie market in terms of pricing compared to the NZ one?

Some things are cheaper, some things are more expensive, but what you always have is a lot more choice.

they say 90s is the 'good wood era'. I don't think i've seen any lately going for sale here in NZ. Plenty in Reverb. But no idea about the Tax/GST import fees you may pay when Guitar arrives here... beware of that. Hopefully someone here will shed some light.

Apparently, he confused the buyer as we had similar names... he said he forgot to let me know he accepted my offer and sold it to the other person for less money...was very dissapointed.
