Agile owners in England!

I am looking to buy the agile intrepid 828 around this time next week.
I was wondering about british peoples experience's with ordering these.
How much you were taxed on them when it came and did you have to pay a handling fee?
Also, how long did the delivery take?

I've never ordered an Agile, but when I bought my 7 string and got it sent over from America, I paid about 1/3 of the price of the guitar in taxes just to get it into the country. Luckily the guitar was worth it, but something to keep in mind!

Hmm, that's pretty steep. Wish shit in britain wasn't so heavily taxed.
Ahh well, if it wasn't we wouldn't have our NHS.
Hmm, i know it's around 17.5% for the VAT once it gets here.
But is their handling charges on top of that?

HM Revenue & Customs

Yer custom charges make buying from the US a right pain.. maybe try emperion guitars if you change your mind? They are in Europe and are fairly similar to Agile
