Ships worldwide, or local pickup can be arranged. Quoted international shipping rate is to Australia, the furthest destination from my location in the USA. Please inquire for shipping rate to your particular non-US address.

The package will be large, heavy, delicate, and will be insured for full value under Reverb Safe Shipping, so shipping may be a significant expense.
