Hello, if anyone can answer some of my questions, it would help a lot.
I decided I want to buy a beginner’s shamisen, and I saw that there was an import tax for the shamisen in the details. How does that work? I saw the total to buy the shamisen regular nagauta type is $359 USD plus 70 dollars for shipping. So I know that I need to use PayPal, will it also add my import tax to the price? Do I need to pay that somewhere separately?
Also, I have questions about buying the strings, will I need to pay through PayPal again and also import tax?
Finally, I saw the message about how long it will take to ship overseas is like 2 months, I live in Califonia, so will it take that long?
Thank you for your time, if someone can answer me as soon a possible. I really love the sound and beauty of the shamisen, this will be the first instrument that I have so much interest in.
