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.

"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"<br /> <br /> 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<br /> <br /> Next is trying to find someone who has one in stock - or willing to order it<br /> <br /> I do have a good friend in san diego who would ship it but the paperwork burden wouldn't be fair on them<br /> <br /> Trust me the paperwork is a nightmare, I just did it for a guitar I purchased in the UK from a dealer,<br /> <br /> On the Aussie scene<br /> <br /> Gibson because of the money issues is not shipping guitars to Australia.<br /> <br /> Basically our market is small and they probably don't care or more to the point have other more important things to worry about <br /> <br /> I got this reply from two different shops here
