Edwards re-sale value

I have a disease which causes me to purchase a guitar, play it for a few months, then decide to sell it and buy something else (the never ending search for the perfect guitar). I'm GASing for an E-LP-92CD (JS), but I'm sure I'll probably end up wanting to sell it down the line. However, the resale v...

Re: 2007 Gibson Explorer worth?

My problem is that I'll buy a guitar which makes me broke, then I feel guilty about buying it and I sell it months later even if I love it. The process then repeats.

Import tax

Is there a fine from customs if I don't declare a guitar that I'm ordering which is over $1000 AUD from the US. Can I simply just order the guitar and when it makes it to customs, I can go down and pay the import tax and leave? The declaration process seems complicated. I like the idea of buying the...
