    I’m an American living in Florida and about three years ago I tried to buy a Marshall from Thomanns in Germany US section, I had purchased a guitar from them before.

    I put the amp in my cart and went to checkout, at that point I was told they were prohibited, from Marshall, from selling Marshalls to the United States.

    Yes, for the first time in our country's history, energy independent. Not slaves to the OPEC cartel. Bad enough yet? They are working on shutting down Enbridge Line 5 pipeline for environment reasons. Pipelines can be repaired.. 23 million gallons of oil pass thru everyday.

    Very territorial in how the carve up the markets that they sell in and we are allowed to buy from . I could get the Marshall from Andertons , but I would have had to pay all the import duties and taxes and then have it converted at my cost to 110 .

    I'm thinking the bottom will drop out of this inflated market here pretty soon, I'll save my $$ till then.

    Of course the way things are currently heading, it could be that guitar amplifiers may be the last thing we'll be concerned with acquiring in the near future..:sadwave:

    I'm more concerned with acquiring more precious metals in the near future....

    How many guitars are "too many"? How many amps are "too many"? How many pedals are "too many"?

    How much ammo is "too much"? Considering the ammo aisles in my local sporting goods stores look like the bread aisle in a Venezuelan grocery store, we may never know the answer to that one...

    Please don't hold your breath, I hate to see anybody suffer from asphyxiation

    This ain't going away until we solve what's causing it to happen

    All the stuff in those containers is already paid for. So if you slow down the deliveries you "manufacture" a "shortage" thereby driving up prices "artificially". It's a big old effin scam. Don't think all that stimulus money was cause they like us, now its time to give it back plus interest.
