    SO I was able to save up enough money to buy this Momose LP off Digimart. Read all I could on these guitars. I figured I would give this Rinkya Proxy bidding a go.

    https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop460/DS04010494/

    I had it shipped Rinkya/FedEx Prime, I've been watching the tracking updates waaay too much. Lol Finally it arrived in Chicago. It went thru customs at Oakland California!!

    My older brother Works for FedEx, his route is to Chicago O'Haire Airport and back to Rockford. He's a fawking jokester to say the least. He did find the package and sent me a pic. I am at work so I will not have pics of the guitar till later tonite. Screenshot_20171129-080309.png

    It looks good I couldn't really tell from those pics. I couldn't hold out anymore, so I went with that one. It's brand new by the way.

    This guitar is sweet. Harmonics are so easy to hit.

    The Beano pickups sound pretty nice to my ears. Playing thru a 15 watt Blues jr. with a Boss BD pushing it with some dirt mixed in. Easy to get that classic Rock sound. Some minor wear on both back control covers. 1 flaw I see in the horn area otherwise this guitar is sweet. I'm quite pleased with my choice.

    It weighs roughly 8 1/2 lbs my 79 Tokai LS50 weighs a tad over 9lbs.
    It has a fairly wide neck but the neck is not too fat nor too thin, very comfortable feeling. I'm guessing it's a more like a 50's neck profile. It's definitely has more beef than my LS50

    Came setup pretty nice out of the box. This guitar is now my #1

    Thanks Frederik, your's and Bluesriffdev's input was greatly appreciated in my decision on buying a Momose. I considered many brands but went with this and I'm very pleased. I purchased a Bacchus Gold Top today so there will be a in-depth comparison between the 2 when the GT arrives.

    You've done so well with that guitar; the colour is so amazing, and it looks so much better in your pictures than the ones from the store you sent me. Cherish it! There's nothing like having a brand new guitar.

    That goldtop was an amazing bargain and I was hoping someone from here would get it; I would have gotten it had I not just bought my Greco. IIRC it's been owned by two different MLP members, so it should have been taken care of well.
