That and the slightly off-shaped portion of the body on the upper bout (which it appears they haven't done anything to) were really my only two minor gripes with Edwards.
What do you mean by the off-shaped upper bout? Care to elaborate?

I really don't know what they don't offer non-veneered tops as an option. That would really open them up to a lot of people who don't like veneers.

They do...the Edwards Pure Material line (only 32 made I think)
Solid highly figured 4xA tops, one piece backs, etc.
They are, however, in the Navigator line of price tags.
Anywhere from 130K-190

Apparently they think only "flammy" tops will sell.

They're mistaken.

But maybe plaintops don't sell well in Japan. That's prob it.

So I just spoke to Yasou at Groovin Music. Sent him the link to the web site for the new model Edwards guitar. Said they only made three of those Edwards guitars as a prototype in a HSB. One of them went to that store/web site.

Yasou is getting 4-5 of them by end of Jan begin of Feb in its actual production color which will only be Dark Cherry Sunburst.

I am in for one for sure.

It's discussed in this thread:

Basically, the horn and mirror side of the body are curved a little strange. Not a tragedy by any stretch of the imagination, but takes away a slight bit from otherwise amazing in every aspect-guitars. :)

Anybody familiar with these:

EDWARDS E-LP-125ALS HSB

EDWARDS E-LP-125ALS HSB

are these also a PM (pure material) or a kind of unreliced E-LP-130, with a pair of Seth Lovers?

Merry X-mas

:hippie:
Holy crap, I'm in love!!! Can't wait for that one to appear! I might even sell my Epi Elite ES335 to raise some doe for it!! What a beauty!!!!

As a sidenote, compare what's coming out of Japan at the moment with the current Gibson Standard line (LP Standard, Studio, Raw Maple and God knows what). There's not a doubt in my mind who's the better value. Sad, but true!

Don't sell your guitar
because.........

Mr. Joe

This time thank you for using KEY Sapporo shop.

Thank you for an inquiry.

I do not perform the overseas shipment of the article in this shop
although being unfortunate.
This time I am really sorry not to be able to comply with your hope.
