    Best place to buy a Historic in Japan or US

    As far as I'm aware, the larger stores such as Ishibashi and Ikebe Gakki aren't shipping outside of Japan atm, and EMS isn't shipping to Australia, so you'll need to use a shipping company like DHL etc, which is really expensive (shipping costs have increased recently). Keep an eye for used...

    Best place to buy a Historic in Japan or US

    ryeburst, I bought an Historic from Dave's a couple of months ago and it landed in Australia in less than a week. I highly recommend Dave's, their prices are as low as you'll find anywhere, their packaging is top notch, and Laun is very helpful and easy to deal with. I've also bought from...

    The 2013 and 2014 "Plaintop" 1958 AND 1960 Historic Reissue Thread

    Forgery fiasco!

    I know the current owner and I've played it, and although it's not very accurate by today's standards, it's a very good sounding (and great looking) guitar, providing you don't mind thin necks... it's a bit too thin for my liking.

    Vintage Strat vs. Custom Shop comparison

    They both sounded great to me... as did your Jeff Beck-ish playing style in the second half of the clip :applause:
