Not to open up a major can of worms, but there could possibly be some legal issues.
I love the idea about offering Hirsbrunners cheaper, but importing them into the U.S. with the intention of avoiding Custom Music might not be legit.
I can't say for sure either way...I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me as if the law would protect an exclusive U.S. dealer before it would offer a way around one.
With the exception of B&S Perantucci (for the exact same reason), I think that anything could be imported without any obvious problems.
Neat concept...keep us posted on if it works or not
