    The weirdest ebay listing I ever seen

    Yeah, the guts are in there, I guess they meant no cabinet is included. These are translation issues it seems to me.

    Best LP style guitar as a platform for a higher end instrument?

    I was going to say a new Kiesel, but pretty much the same thing. Tons of options including left handed, ebony, stainless, colors galore, etc.

    Rarest MIJ LP Brand

    That would have been $1000US in 1980 (Yen to US Dollar was 100 to 1), and a new Gibson LP Standard would have been about $650US. So yeah, it was a high price :)

    MIJ Strat with 2 point trem

    I'm looking for options on getting a MIJ Strat (S/S/S) with a 2 point trem. I know Fender makes a bunch, and I'll consider them, but I usually prefer the quality of high end Japanese guitars. If I could find a Momose with a 2 point trem I wouldn't be asking :) Does anyone know of any?

    How is this Beautiful Tokai Still for Sale

    You could cover the backs so they don't know which ones have a 2 piece back or a 1 piece back as well. I see people (and I've done it myself) go for the 1 piece thinking it will sound better through an amp. Sure, it can look better, but sound different? Come on lol

    Looking for help/advice on a first MIJ Les Paul

    It will lower the initial price, and the resale price. On a MIJ guitar, the maple veneer will be on more maple, so it won't sound any different just look a bit nicer. I personally wouldn't let it be a deal breaker for me if I liked the rest of the guitar.

    First Les Paul!

    I believe the Chinese ones use the model identifier "ALS". The "LS" models are Japanese.

    Tokai facts, theory, photos & ID thread

    I'm looking at a Tokai that says "Neo-Select" on the headstock instead of "Love Rock", an LS-1959 model. the description says "Neo's proud Neoselect The ultimate guitar of the world's highest peak". Anyone familiar with these? Price wise it's about the same ( a little less) than a new LS-390.

    Tokai facts, theory, photos & ID thread

    Are there places online from which you could purchase a new LS from the States? I have a daughter in Yokozuka but she knows nothing about guitars. EDIT: Ok, is there a reliable place in Tokyo, from which to purchase a nice Tokai, like an LS-390? Is anyone in Tokyo that's aware of something maybe...

    Please recommend the best tele style guitars MIJ.

    It's ridiculous how good the newer MIM Fenders are, especially when you look at the cost. I got my Baja with upgraded Callaham compensated 3 piece brass saddles and the hard case for under $700. You can't beat it with a stick lol
