    I don't know if this is the kind of thing you folks are interested in. I have no experience of ordering from Japan.

    But here's a split diamond headstock Tokai LC with an ebony board that has a warped neck? Might go super cheap as a project guitar?

    No K&T pickups on that one. It is a Deviser made model.

    IMG_4456.JPG The Japanese Les Paul's have the quality that Gibson had years ago. The Burny I bought a month ago is so on the mark with every detail. I put a roller bridge on it because. I normal people would do nothing but play it. Look, oh my look at the bridge I screwed it on.

    The products from Japan get here faster than from the west coast to me on the east coast. Better tracking and not even a boo boo on the box.

    I'd say jump on the Bacchus with the Bigsby and pickups upgrade! The one thing to consider right now, though, is that no one is buying anything and prices are way down in the US. I bought a bunch of guitars from Japan last year and felt comfortable that I would at least break even selling on Reverb if the guitar wasn't my thing. I would not say that is the case today - buying from Japan isn't always a great deal right now. But that Bacchus at about $750 all in seems pretty fair.
