If you're serious about this, I assume it can be bought by a friend in the US and sent to you as a gift

I wonder if it has to do with wood issues.

Hi Steve, not that easy, Leftymeister has it because of the timber it's a bureaucratic nightmare. and i still cant get full specs on whats used

Next is trying to find someone who has one in stock - or willing to order it

I do have a good friend in san diego who would ship it but the paperwork burden wouldn't be fair on them

Trust me the paperwork is a nightmare, I just did it for a guitar I purchased in the UK from a dealer,

On the Aussie scene

Gibson because of the money issues is not shipping guitars to Australia.

Basically our market is small and they probably don't care or more to the point have other more important things to worry about

I got this reply from two different shops here
