Personally I don't think there is one Dave. You'll find the occasional box, but if you want a good regular supply of quality boxes, you really need to look in the USA.

I'm in Tassie and import boxes in reasonably large quantities. While postage is expensive (I'm paying around $200 per carton) by the time I divide the total costs up per box, they end up around similar prices to what people over here charge.....and the variety is brilliant in the USA.

Check out my site for a variety of guitars built almost exclusively with imported boxes:

  thanks guys, i thought this might be the case' i have been buying mine from the states but thought there may have been an alternative in aus worth exploring, thanks. Dave.

good luck Rum Sick..if you find a good place to get them let us know...

I went into Smokemart today, and got two boxes for five bucks. Already turned one into a guitar, the other is not the right shape for a guitar, but is perfect for an amp, so that will be my next project.

Cheers
Dash
