    It came and I think it is pretty nice. Wish it was a 1 piece body and weird that Edwards sprays over their "relicing", but it plays and sounds good. The maple slab 2-piece 60's style neck really seems out of place with everything else being 50's style, though.

    Serial on the back?
    Any stamps on the neck?
    Might be a neck swap.
    My Riverhead relicing was lacquer sprayed over too...hated it so I refinished it.

    Yes, serial says it's a 2015. I'm a little too lazy to take apart a guitar I like right after getting it :) Not much comes up when you google this model, but the couple hits I found did have the same style of neck, so I don't think it is a swap.

    The other funny thing about this guitar is that it has a really big router bump out / hump on the treble side neck pocket. Just another 50s-style kink they threw in there.

    Maybe it's just some parts Edwards threw together, but they usually seem to get the basic fetaures right on their tribute/replica models, so I thought this might be trying to emulate some famous guitar. But the Edwards Jeff Beck tele w/ humbuckers also has a neck like this one, and I don't know if that is accurate to the original.

    Could not resist this one. Has the right look, I think. I'll play it till the neck cracks worse and it needs glued, I guess.

    Called Hiroaki and asked him to put this 1981 Springy ST-60 YS on hold for Thomas. Should arrive before the weekend.

    Someone at the store got a bit confused about this one I'd guess. Wish it was mine!

    You made me aroused with that ST-60 YS, Yellow Sunburst ( Bedbug color) Andy. Round horn RLG-50 and ST-60 is probably as good as it gets.

    Link Harold posted, work it does not.

    It was a 1981 Tokai LS-150 that sold for 102,000 yen at Ishibashi. The link is dead now but I found this image. It looked very nice.

    So glad I didn't see that one as they don't ship rosewood to europe anymore because of cites..
    Would have been a very frustrating moment..

    CITEs seems to have made this particular thread pretty slow these days.

    I haven't had any issues,,,,,yet. I have had three guitars with rosewood boards, shipped by SEA from Japan to Canada with no problems.

    I was wondering if there were any issues. Good to know. The CBSA is having enough problems with our borders to worry about rosewood guitar fretboards.
