look at these on ebay to be posted from USA and australia. prices at the moment are just above £200 to £925.
one is with BUYitNow price £899+25 postage in Birmigham here. Try to go through quidco and might get some more off the price say about £10.

Tip: the link to ebay do not work here so change the **** with cg i . e ba y no spaces obviously


also

just to mention £1249 here which you do not though :) but may better to compare it with the £1200 one if you had to pay that much.

for a rough price, add 20% (it's a little more) on top of the SHIPPED price.

However, if you're going to splash 1K on an acoustic unseen then you must be mad especially on a Gibson!

Buying an acoustic is a greater risk than an electric imho, I would definitely want to try the acoustic first to see if it sounds and plays good.

You will also find that USA dealers are not allowed to sell Gibsons for export (unless you're friendly with the dealer) as that is Gibsons policy.

You will also find that there won't be much variation in price (unless ex demo) on UK prices thanks to Rosetti (the UK distributor)
