    Hi all, Here’s a dilemma I’ve never encountered- I’m contemplating switching the wiring of one of my MIJ LP’s pickup selector switches from the default thin rubber coated wiring to vintage braided wiring. Has anyone done this and discerned a difference in tone?

    The $$$$ MIJ’s?

    Hi everyone, Out of curiosity, does anyone have any first-hand experience with some of the “whoa-mama-that’s-e$$$$$pen$ive” MIJ brands, like Brillbate, g7, or Fullertone? At that point, are you entering the realm of, like, insane replica/Max Burst quality?

    FS: 2007 Tokai LS-2PX (Jacaranda fretboard, 1 piece Honduran neck and back), Violin Finish. excellent condition, $2200 plus shipping

    Hi guys, So after posting about it on the “What’s the most expensive MIJ you own?” thread, I did some soul searching and realized that, as incredible as the Tokai LS-2PX I have is, the thinner ‘59/‘60 style neck is just too thin for me (I’m a beefy ‘58 kinda guy). So it’s with a heavy heart...
