Hi, I'm trying to order lonestar special 1x12 combo in a flame maple with cream and tan grill from Ukraine. I've asked an ukrainian local mesa dealer about it, and they 've said it will cost me $7125!!! How can this be possible :/ are they tryin to trick me (it's common way to make a buisness in ukraine) or such configurations do cost 7 grans? (Also they 've said it will take 6months to get it)

It seems high, but I don't know if the Ukrainian government imposes really high duty on certain things like amps or electronic equipment coming from the USA. That could play a large part of the cost, but it sounds a high.

Yeah our taxes are rediculus. But such amp costs like $3k in usa, isn't it?

I'm not up to speed on the latest prices for custom cabs from Mesa, but $3,000 USD is probably a good estimate.
