A buddy of mine purchased a guitar from Canada and had it shipped to him in US. The guitar was around $4500 USD. He got hit with I think $130 in brokerage fees but that was about it. Jeremy sometimes crosses the border with his guitars to attend different guitar festivals so that could be one way of going about it.
