Hello, First time commenting, but long time buyer of parts..
I'm looking at ordering 2 necks after about 4yrs of being otherwise busy.. ....
But it's about $300 USD- ...or $230 usd for one neck, in freight costs to my address in Australia !!!
Last time it was about $75 usd for one neck from memory..
By comparison companies like Stratosphere, etc can ship necks for $90 USD, & express air freight as well !
I wish I had a friend in the USA who could forward air freight the order to me at a normal price,...
- just to avoid the Warmoth freight price scam on principle ..
There doesn't seem to be any fair reason for the 2 - 3 x freight cost..
Rant over.... for now ;)
 
I’d like to add my point of view that Stratosphere don't pack the items very well. It is normally one layer of bubble wrap in a cardboard box, so it becomes a matter of luck if you receive the item in good condition. I had a bad experience so I stopped buying from them.
 
Reminds me of that Dylan song everything is broken, except everything is more expensive.

hey there Darren, I'm from the SW of Western Australia & last weeks quote for the quickest delivery time on a neck only, was $US 290 ...Thats getting close to another neck !! I have a suggestion for you, regards shipping. I have a few firms in the US that will freight forward items to Oz, from their address in the US, I will contact them today,& get a few quotes. Happy to help with information if you wish.
Cheers
