Yes! I see now. Andrew, please accept my apologies.
..lol..I'm not Andrew from Independent Music (although he is seen here occassionally). But hey, if there are free apologies being handed out, I'll take one.
Welcome to the forum BTW - hope you get your hands on an Axe FX III when the first shipment hits NZ! It'll be worth the wait.
You think it's odd, as someone want you to think it is odd ) In fact, it's very logical: salaries, wages, social benefits etc are lower in New Zealand, that means the prices should be lower.$3799 NZD currently on webpage. Must say, a bit odd NZ is cheaper than Aussie.
^ When will the NZ units start shipping?
The price in New Zealand is $4149. Yes you read that correctly! GULP! The dollar in NZ is the same as the USA. Not via conversation, but how hard you work to get a single dollar. Its still one for one, the dollar is still exactly the same worth. Thus, in NZ, we have to pay $4149 for an Axe fx 3 unit. So i guess that will make people from other counties feel a bit better in regards to the lesser amount they get one for.
I've been letting the dealer know that we would like advance warnings so we can have the funds ready, and they said, early june, so we sold a lot of gear, and low and behold, no unit, july no unit, and some are working musicians, thus, we had to buy more gear to get by, then out of the blue comes the pre-order email, and guess what, no money to pay it at present, and rest of rig set up for Axe FX unit. F#^@^*$ OH WELL!
You're surely not serious are you? Last time I looked I wasn't living under a communist regime, though I'd argue NZ is rapidly turning into one.
Amazon has a big special on Hankies. Take a look
I just exercised some patience, and after spending some time saving....Lo & behold the money was there. Now I'll just be patient some more and next thing I know....IT'LL ARRIVE! and after waiting for so long and paying so much I'll be very appreciative that I'll have one.....and I'll give a thought to those in less fortunate countries that would probably have to pay $10,000.00 by their conversion rate.
So do electrons flow in the opposite direction in Australia?
