Bumili ako sa JB ng Mesa at MusicMan. Fair naman yung discount. Mas mura ng konti sa HK. Pero kung ikokonsider yung tax na sadyang mataas dito sa Pinas, fair na yung bigay sa akin. Nakakagulat lang naman kasi tag price nila. Pero pag nakausap naman ng maayos, ok naman.

Same experience. Humingi ako ng gusto kong discount at binigay naman nila. Mahal lang konti sa internet price.

Ok na din considering wala pang shipping price un nasa internet.
 

Tama. Mas mahal lang ng konti sa internet price. Ako yung taong hindi makapaghintay. Kaya satisfied na ako sa deal.

Don't get me wrong ha. I'm not from JB. Alam kong taga yung ibang items nila at wala nang discount. Yung isang EBMM ko inorder ko sa labas. Pero medyo mataas din yung tax pagdating dito. Pero mas mura pa din kesa sa JB.

With the case of Mesa, panalo talaga ang deal with JB. 220v with warranty. Pag kumuha ka sa labas 110v lang makukuha mo tapos walang warranty.

When talking about local prices on music instruments, most people seems to forget that the Philippines has a 35% customs duty on imports of everything music instruments. If you add other standard duties and taxes you get to about 60% on top of the import price.

Kahit yung EHX Metal Muff nila mas mahal ata ng 1.5k kesa sa Lazer. Considering na pareho naman silang brand new. :))

Napadaan kasi ako sa JB Audio Solutions kanina at nakita ko yung mga Music Man nila, around 210k ang isa.  :?

Conversely, I could say bakit cheap ang budget mo... Heh heh.  But seriously maganda workmanship ng Music Man if I could find one that has hiyaw.  Still searching though.  I would still say 95% of Musicman Guitars just don't meet my requirement in terms of hiyaw.  Just tested a JP6 sa JB Megamall.  Ang ganda pero patay ang tunog.

With regards to pricing, we all know the FCKED UP pricing policy of JB Music.  But to truly benchmark the correct street price in the U.S., always check the themusiczoo.com.  They have an extensive selection and are priced fairly AND most importantly, they will honestly tell you if a specific guitar is NOT responsive if you ask.  But the most important thing I like about the music zoo is wala silang staff na Pinoy na bolero.

Let me correct you there, duty on electric guitars is 10% (AHTN Code 9202.90.00).  VAT is 12%.  Whatever is charged to the importer in terms of VAT is deductible from their OUTPUT VAT.  So it is NOT 35%.    Other standard duties are documentary stamps and processing which is less than 1%. Please PHILMUSIC check your facts before you post.  Ito nga ang ayaw ko sa Pinoy, hindi thorough bago magsalita.
