Problem is, they dominate offerings on sources like EBay! Even if you use the”USA ONLY” filter. Ebay needs to end the Japanese bull shit of advertising the same guitar several times at different prices. Hey EBay, enough already!^^ I'm also surprised that lots of stuff online showed up in Japan.
I already knew they have a huge Gibson community, but surprises me that lot of used stuff pops up even here in the US
