So it has been sitting with Aramex for 6 days now, no status change at all. The name change did not do them any good :grump:

Andertons limited edition Road Worn, it has the US pups like the Baja, Nitro finish and U shaped neck, exactly what i would order if I had the money for a Custom Shop. I even love the colour.

I have lost track of what the rules are these days, The Andertons email suggested they will remove VAT which I think is 20% at present. I can't buy this guitar in NZ, so I'm not too fussed if it isn't a bargain price.

So I was on the phone to them this morning and explained that it was 7 days without an update, where is it?
"Yes, we can see that, we will look into that promptly sir"

I walk to the letter box 30 minutes later and there it is. Phecking useless they are...

Good thing it didn't fall off the back of their truck...

If the declared value is >= $1000 NZD it should get pinged GST at customs, unless they miss it :lol:
