Hi Everyone. Just starting my CBG journey and it's great to see so many Canadians at CigarBoxNation. How does a fellow CDN join this club. Thanks.

Peggy there is a place based in Ottawa called NextGen guitars. They may have what you're looking for.

Around my parts I'm able to get boxes from the local cigar ships for 5$ a pop.

Tom - My bad - I typed Tony instead of Tom earlier - need new glasses - apologies.

Comment by Tom Talarico on October 25, 2017 at 2:10pm

I was charged duty on a relatively small order. Some fretwire, a few guitar straps, and a couple sets of tuners if my memory serves me. On the custom declaration the contents were listed as musical instrument parts. When customs listed it as a musical box I was charged duty and a customs processing fee making the extra fees and shipping was more money than my order was worth. What really irks me that if I want to appeal the charges I would have to do it by snail mail.....not worth the effort...

I am no relation to any Steven.

Cheers

Tony - i have not had to pay duty ever on anything from Gitty. My largest order ever was $170US. If you don't mind my asking,under what condition did they ask you pay duty? and are you any relation to Steven? ;-)
