Why not use someone in this country?

Martin Simms for example.

I can see this being a nightmare with customs etc.

I'd use someone in the UK. Who does Shuker, ACG, Sei, Wal and Overwater use?

I believe Martin Simms is in Kent and has a very good reputation.

Age doesn't matter - if you don't have the correct certificate for export and import it could be impounded.

You can ship in Europe whilst we're still an EU country but anywhere else could have problems.

You'd also need to get import and export stuff sorted so that you don't pay U.K. import duties and VAT when it comes back.

I'd definitely get it sorted here. Plenty of good people out there :)

Didn't realise CITES covered crossing the border into Lincolnshire B)

Sorry, couldn't resist. Now with my more useful hat on, I'd have thought opening up a dialogue with Pedulla and a reputable UK luthier you would be able to get hold of a headstock decal.
