If it was as bright as that I would have done it a long time ago. In the nineteen eighties and nineties I often spent time in NY for work and always - out of sheer necessity :-) - visited Sam Ash and the others. In those days too the price difference with Holland was the same. Albeit that prices of guitars were where half of what they are now :-(. I often was tempted to buy one in New York, but when a friend of mine was stopped at the Dutch customs and was caught, it became a whole different ball game and it turned out that he would have been far better off if he had bought his at home. So forgive me that I look at it from the dark side. Well, not so dark...
