just like ebay or any website. If an item cannot be shipped to your country, then it will not be listed in your results unless you change your filters.

Reverb works fine and the same everywhere. But you do need to know how to use it.

What riscado stated is accurate. His follow up instructions were clear enough for me to understand and change my settings to view his listing. Anyone can do it. Let's move on as its beginning to feel a little unnecessarily abrasive. :)

I have an upper end MIJ Crews goldtop that I'm letting go. If you know me here, you know that I'm a huge fan of Crews, especially the top end models and have several that are keepers.

It's in pretty good shape, but as you can see from the pics, there is a little play wear here and there. I bought it earlier this year from Japan with the hope that, as a 1957 model, it would have a nice fat neck. While the neck isn't thin, it's a little smaller than the other Crews that I have. The weight and neck measurements are:

7.7 pounds
Neck Width - 1.69" at the nut, 2.08" at the 12th fret
Neck Depth - 0.89" at the nut, 0.98" at the 12th fret

I couldn't find much in the way of information about this model. What I can tell from the specs and markings is that Crews made a few prototype models of a 57 gold top. But I've never found any evidence that they produced an official run nor do I know what it originally sold for. That being said, it is spec'd almost identically to their Next 5D model (which I also have but is not for sale). 1 piece mahogany body, air dried mahogany neck, hard maple top, lacquer finish and K&T Gold Tone pickups. While I'm not 100% certain, I believe the body is chambered, it's just too light to be solid based on my experience with other Crews models.

I'm looking for $2,500 for this one. It comes in its original hard case.

Besides the quality of the guitar, the K&T pickups are a factor in the price. I'm not going to hype them, but they are far and away my favorite pickups and I'm fortunate to have a few different sets in my Crews guitars. I prefer them to the sets of DryZs that I've owned. If the K&Ts don't interest you, I can sell it without them for $1,900. I'm happy to keep them.

One thing to point out, for whatever reason, they used 500k mini pots and ceramic caps. I have no idea why they would put mini pots in a guitar of this caliber, maybe because it is a prototype. It doesn't bother me, but I wanted to point it out.

1. Tokai LS-200 1985

Regarded as a holy grail of vintage mij guitars. It's hard to be sure about the spec of Tokai in mid 80s + this is a custom order model but I believe based on comparison with confirmed spec guitars I have/had that it's made of honduran mahogany and has braz board. Of course solid top and cashew or nitro finish (catalogues from 86-87 I've found say cashew).
Very good-good condition overall, frets aren't high and perfectly crowned but for someone who likes low frets (like me) are just fine, medium-slim C neck, 8.5lbs. SD 59 neck and vintage Gibson bridge PU (neck Gibson included), Tokai hardcase.
3700$/£2700/3200€

2. Crews KTR FM59J 2010

Good condition overall, some cosmetic issues. Medium D neck, just 8.1lbs without pickguard (not original pickguard included). Professionally refretted, Faber bridge, upgarded wiring, Lifton 1959 hardcase included.

Some really nice guitars for sale. Homeras, the top on your Ls-200 is incredible! It reminds me of a flash yellow opal from Lightning Ridge, Australia.

Looking for a nice MIJ 335 guitar under $2000 with shipping to the US. Open to anything as long as it doesn't have a narrow(1-5/8) nut width.

Message me if you have something I might like!

That's a lot of guitar for that price, and as often as I see folks looking for MIJ with ebony boards I bet that'll get snapped up quick. GLWTS.
