I think Roger picked a used one up on the bay a couple weeks ago? I was watching it and a bidder named 'Zoukboy' won the auction. Maybe he could give a review?
Steve, I'm in the same boat. I would love to try one of his cedar tops. Not so particular on the back and sides.
On the duty thing: I have shipped an instrument to Canada without any extra costs. Received a couple as well. UPS did charge me a small broker fee, but it was negligible in relation to the cost of the instrument. Can't remember the exact cost of the guitar, but it was over $2K. The brokerage fee was something like $24.
That's My Blah, Blah, Blah on the Matter, Anyway...
