I got super into getting things shipped from Japan in 2016 (thanks, everyone). Buyee was great all year. Huge boxes, tons of bubble wrap. And the one guitar that did get damaged, they essentially reimbursed me for almost all of the cost of purchase and shipping.

As of today, I've kept 4 of these. Many seem to be complaining about the exchange rate, but I was able to not lose much, if any, on the ones I sold.

Edwards LTC - awesome, but needs a fret leveling to get the action lower.

Fernandes Robin Crosby King V - Nice alternative to the Jackson Forum version, and $2000 less. Had a really cool feature to lock the Floyd.

Greco Explorer w/ a really early Floyd - Sold it but it was nice despite being beat up. Super slim neck. I would get another one with the trap inlays if I ever see it.

No wonder you're keeping buyee afloat.
They're sending you air guitars.

Ehhh, sorry. Fixed the LPs, maybe I'll fix the rest someday, I've lost interest for now. Google Photos is annoying.

Wasn't it obvious what "EVH B/Y" was, I thought you guys were into guitars? :)

Fixed all the pics I think.

I also got this Burny from Reverb a couple months ago and did a quick conversion back from the Kahler it had. It was easy to dial in some fairly low string height on it but I don't love its pickups. 50s wiring helped it a little but the 2 Grecos are still probably my favorites right now with the Bacchus not far behind. Once I get the Edwards worked on it will probably jump up a couple notches.
