Are electric guitars duty free?

Hi everyone,

As part of our move down, my husband would like to bring some musical instruments with him. The Aduana website says that two musical instruments and their accessories are allowed as part of your luggage and so are duty free. But no other details are given. Do they make a distinction between acoustic and electric guitars? I think my husband will likely bring one of each. Also, would an amplifier be considered an accessory? It's quite a big piece of equipment.

Kris

We drove down with a trailer full of stuff including two guitars and one amp.....we only paid a minimal amount at the border but....border/customs experiences can change day by day.

Good to know, thanks. The guitars are coming either way, I'm just trying to figure out how much cash to have on us to pay any duties they might assess.
