    "MIJ" Bargain of the day!

    I believe it to be a 2009 History SH-LCV. If someone here is looking for a nice single-cut Custom, this is a lot of guitar for the price. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j1023832458

    Could this be the death of Reverb?

    This isn't a Reverb thing. It's a requirement for any third party payment systems, including PayPal and Venmo.

    MIJ Goldtops that age/fade

    Tokai has a few recent models that are all lacquer and have brass powder in the finish. I would think that combo would age and green. Here's one, and I know there are '57 style models as well: https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop38/DS07180744/ I have a Deviser made Sonix '54 style, but I'm...

    "MIJ" Bargain of the day!

    I've made multiple deposits that I turned right around and released back to me when I didn't win an auction. No fees were charged. And since the deposits were paid and refunded through my credit card, there was no money out of pocket.

    Thanks. I've only seen one other, and that one was natural. But yes, they are pretty uncommon in this configuration. If you're referring to the Albatross, it's not sold, still available.

    This was sold, but the buyer backed out. $650 shipped. This is a ton of guitar for the price, IMO. Back in the mid 2000's Edwards released a series of artist tribute guitars. To my knowledge, these were never official artist models, but it's typically pretty easy to tell which famous artist...

    I'm lucky to also have a Realdeal 335, though mine is blonde. It is truly superb, among the best I've had. If anyone has been looking for that one special and historically accurate 335, you should definitely reach out to @RyanC . There aren't many of these floating around.

    Personally, I think the neck feels great. I prefer necks that are a little wider at the nut. I'm sure there's a point when a neck might feel too wide, but this isn't it. It's comfortable and I don't really notice that it's slightly wider than usual. I'm terrible at describing tone. It doesn't...

    I think Storks are semi hollow as well. Most I have seen have a trapeze tailpiece vs the stop tail on the albatross. Other than that, I'm not seeing much difference. This one is definitely an Albatross, it's noted as such in the body cavity.

    Looks like Roxy beat me to the punch.

    "MIJ" Bargain of the day!

    For future reference, I believe that FJ's limit would only apply to bids/orders made without a deposit. You should be able to use your credit card to make a deposit with them for whatever amount you wanted to bid. If your bid ultimately didn't win, you could release your deposit back to your CC...

    MIJ Seventy Seven Albatross Single Cut - $2,000 shipped/paypal'd OBO How about $1,750 Seventy Seven is the brand name Deviser uses for their semi-hollow and hollow body guitars. Like other Deviser guitars, the models that are made in Japan are of the highest quality. Over the past few years...

    What Is This?

    Sigh I'm pretty sure it's a KTR-LTD. The pickups should be K&T NFS Weeps, which are fantastic. You should confirm that the pickups are K&Ts, it'll make a difference. Every Crews I've played has been off the charts good.
