    My new custom made tele has been stuck at Canadian customs now for almost a week....I sure hope it’s just that they are overloaded with packages and not the fact that it’s got a rosewood fretboard...any fellow Canadians had issues getting a rosewood fretboard guitar across the border from the USA?

    I actually have a guitar coming in that just cleared customs.

    it was in customs for about 4 days from what I can see in the tracking information.

    It does have rosewood too, but not much, just the string retainer, and it was dyed solid black.

    It is in Richmond BC right now and working its way across.

    Nice! Yea my tracking shows me it arrived at customs a week ago...still waiting...I’m thinking they have mountains of Christmas packages they’re dealing with so I’m not too worried yet...would be nice if I had it by Christmas though lol

    Hopefully it's just the backlog.
    I have a new hard drive coming from Macsales in Chicago and it's almost a week over due.

    Lucky you. Here in Brazil sometimes an item stays with Customs for a month. And then they charge you 80% of the total price (price PLUS shipping) as import taxes.

    Enjoy your new guitar and don´t forget to post pictures!

    My last 4 packages that came in the mail were all internal to the states. All were shipped after November 25 and all were at least 1 day late. It is that time of year again.

    I just remembered that the knobs were shotgun shells too lol. I’m sure they probably let those go and took the wood hehe

    i dont know how cold it is there, but i imagine its pretty cold. dont take that guitar out of the case when you get it.....let it sit there for about 24 hours, then unlatch the case and barely crack it open and let it sit another hour or so. then take it out. i know it sucks but its not good for guitars to go from one extreme to the other.
