    Since there have been past issues with newer members posting live auction links that members here are watching and/or bidding on, in the Bargain of the day thread,
    I'm starting a similar thread asking members to limit postings to Japan online ads, and any live auctions with a "Buy it Now" option, that way everyone has a fair chance, without unduly increasing watchers, bids, and final valuations. Pawn shop finds and local classified finds are also welcome.

    The only recommended guidelines are:

    1- It's ultimately up to the buyer to decide if an item is really a good deal or not,
    so do your homework before laying down your cold hard cash.
    No post or poster is to be held liable, in the event sale of an item doesn't turn out to be a bargain.

    2- If you want to list one of your items or a friend's items, best do so in the classifieds section.

    3-To avoid frustrating watchers of regular format auctions, that aren't "buy it now" format or relists, please post only fixed price or relisted auctions with zero bids (that didn't sell at the same starting price the 1st time around).


    Sites that post Japan used equipment listings include
    digimart.net , j-guitar.com , ishibashi.co.jp/eng/ , Reverb.com
    "Buy it Now" auctions => Yahoo Japan + eBay

    Japan shops that ship worldwide :

    Bottom's Up Guitars
    Buy Japan
    Chuko Gakkiya
    Far East Guitars
    G'Seven Guitars
    Guitar Shelter
    Guitar shop Hoochies
    Guitar Traders
    Historic Guitar
    HYybrid Guitars
    Hyper Guitars
    Ishibashi Music (all shops)
    Kinko Music Co
    Music Plant Tsukuba
    Ohkubo kangakkiten
    Rockin' (Hamamatsu, Nagoya, Toyota, Kariya)
    Strato-Crazy
    VelvetSound

    Digimart Information in English???????????
    There should be no Japan tax charged when buying direct from these shops.

    Happy hunting !

    Cheers guys,
    I hope they won't get merged. Each has very different approaches to posting buys.

    I got one of my Tokai LS's courtesy of someone's recommendation in the
    original BIN thread, and others got some pretty good deals also.

    Nice one Reborn. I just set up the 'MIJ Bargain of the day #2' thread (on the spur of the moment) as a way to get things moving. I agree that the BIN idea is better than posting live auction deals and the 'MIJ - Let's see what you could have won thread' could still be there for missed gems.

    What's the general consensus then? Should I delete the 'MIJ Bargain of the day #2'?

    I completely agree with Matty + others, I would let them both live or sink.

    It's anyone's guess how long that might be for either thread. :cheers:

    Two stores I've shopped directly with were Ishibashi + Guitar Shelter.

    Perhaps others can add to the overseas dealer list, I misplaced it.
