    I'm hoping they will make one without the cheesy sound port. It's the only thing that puts me off. Well, that and the price! A 'standard' non bling Kanile'a Tenor Pineapple would be great.

    I meant at the US border rather than once I was back. An American tourist can claim back vat on any number of things at a UK airport. It seems the same thing doesn't exist the other way.

    Ok what about if I'm in Arizona but I buy a uke from someone in another state? Do I pay their sales tax even though I'm not there?

    Thank you. I've seen a few Ukes listed on the websites of three of the local shops but that 5.6% makes quite a difference. Prices in the UK always include tax.
