I did buy it. As for import taxes I am not sure. It seems like it depends on which carrier is used?

Thanks Reborn Old! That makes a little more sense. I hadn't realized there were two Parsons in that group.

I thought originally it was Clarence White that modified the Tele when he was in the Byrds?

I put a set of Tone Pro Kluson style tuners in my guitar that had been slightly reamed to accept Grover Rotomatics. They work great.

I was thinking a TLS60 also since it looks like a 2 piece center seam back from the photos.

Great guitars and I really like my Tokai 57 pickups in my 1983 LS80.
