Thanks for your support everyone.

My dad says he should be able to pay me back in 1-2 weeks so I'll be able to resume the hunt shortly. I've ditched my commitment to PRS. My plan is go to the store, play whatever catches my eye, buy whatever catches my ears.

I'd LOVE to get one of these but it's 4x what I'm willing to spend. I am thinking of ordering it's Epiphone counterpart but am not sure how much they charge to ship. Any of you Canadians know? Rondo charges $74 but the day I pay that to ship an Agile is the day I take out my spine and disappear up my intestines and collaspe into a single atom.............sorry what were we talking about again..........oh right, shipping on Canadian orders from Muscian's Friend.

I've looked at that Epiphone more than once. Have played Epiphones in the past, I really like them. Congrats on the purchase!

A quick update folks,

A delivery attempt was made yesterday but I wasn't here and no one had the money for the duties ($140! Crazy!) so another attempt to deliver will be made Monday. I'll be here to except it and throw my money off a bridge.........I mean pay the duties. Keep your eyes peeled Monday for photos as I will need to take a few for insurance purposes anyway.

Nice guitar! You live in Canada? That duty crap stinks! Where you at? I'll paddle it across the river for you. No, no, if any customs agents are out there, I AM kidding. I would never do anything illegal.
