maybe sold on another site
Yes, I suppose that could have happened.
oh man that sucks....
ObG Jr for 60K is not a bad price.
This is a pretty cheap price for a LS-120 state-side, right? https://reverb.com/item/10553440-19...in-natural-amber-with-original-hardshall-case
Did most 1982s 120s have flametops rather than veneers?
Cheap? I wouldn't say that but it is on the more positive side of reasonable. I'm actually trying to figure out if my mid 2000s LS-135 is veneer or flame. I've received an equal amount of different answers.
I would guess from the model number that it's a veneer. Have you tried pulling the pickups out to see where the grain lines run. Does it have nitro lacquer? If it does, I can almost certainly say it'd be a veneer at that original price point (135,000 yen) in the mid 2000s.
most 120s are veneer flametops.
From a trusted seller who'll do the CITES paperwork:
I thought that in late 1981 into parts of 1982, a lot of people were getting 120s with solid tops?
Does anyone have actual examples of the CITES paperwork that seller obtains for export? I remember another thread where the buyer just showed a picture of the Japan Post invoice which was not related to any CITES paperwork.
I think Roxy bought her Burny from that seller with the RR Greco.
depends what you mean by a lot of people.... 81 82 i have seen about 5 solid tops and many many veneers.. overall i would say 10-15% of 120s were solid...
it may be the case that there were a higher proportion of solid tops for the period you mention, but the best way to know is to ask for cavity shots, i wont buy any 120s without them..
No, I ended up getting one stateside, but I have that seller on my list for when I go looking for a black custom again.
Circumstantial evidence might be that he cites (!) a delay while the paperwork is done, whereas before CITES he didn't.
Did anyone here buy from ookini55 before the new regulations came in?
You’ll know if CITES is done in Japan it takes about 3 weeks for the paperwork to be completed on new guitars, not sure on used...
Paid for my (used) Greco on 26th March last year. Yuma (ookini55) sent an email saying he'd done the paperwork on 6th April.
That was me and there was no actual paperwork labeled CITES anywhere in there. Considering I've ordered 5 guitars from Ookini now since the original post and there hasn't been any issues, I'd say he's legit. Every shipment has been delayed by a minimum 2 weeks. On every box, there has been a plastic pocket that was opened that contained all of the shipping paperwork and re-taped by customs. Maybe customs keeps it? I don't know, but all of the boxes have been opened by Customs and still sent on my way.
I know that's not a definitive answer but it's all I got guys.
Thanks for that, it sounds like whatever he is doing works.
