Just as well. I just finished booking tickets/flights/hotel.. for Maiden in Hamilton this coming October!
Haven't had the pleasure since June of '85 at the now extinct Toledo Sports Arena. I see they are playing that same week - Friday night at Nationwide Arena: Happy birthday to me.

Thanks for the heads up Gammy!

And now for something a little different - 2010 Vox Virage II - $1,200

This is the second updated iteration of the Japanese made Vox Virage.

The Virage II SC is a more solid, rock guitar vs. the DC. It is a solid and versatile guitar that plays and sounds great.

Here is a link to a nice review of this model with tons of info - https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/guitars/vox-virage-ii-sc-362349

This guitar has had a refret. A previous owner installed Jescar Gold EVO frets and the are smooth an unworn.

The Vox CoAxe pickups each have 3 different switchable voices, clean (up), crunch (middle) and lead (down). The difference between the voicings are subtle, but noticeable.

The MaxContact bridge is a little unusual, but I like the way it feels and resonates.

It has a nice weight at 7.4 pounds. The medium C-shape neck measurements are:

Width - 1.7" at the nut, 2.0" at the 12th fret
Depth - 0.86" at the 1st fret, 0.93" at the 12th fret

I would describe it as good to very good condition. It does have some honest playwear, but no major dings or chips. There are pick scratches on the pickguard and top. And the back also has some light scratching. It's been played, but well loved.

Included is the OHSC which also shows some wear (and has a couple of stickers). But it is solid and all the latches and hinges are fine.

Seventy Seven Exrubato Custom - $1,850 Shipped

I never intended to let this one go. But with a recent purchase of a special semi-hollow, I find I'm a little heavy in this realm.

I do not know the year, but fairly recent. It's a model that was built in the Asaka factory in Japan and has been discontinued. More like a 355, but has its own thing going.

One of the things I love about this guitar is the neck, it's got some real heft without being overwhelming. Much more comfortable than I typically find on most MIJ 335s. I really like the way the lower output, Alnico 2 pickups sound, especially in this guitar. Very clear, but can rock if you push them.

I would describe it in very good to excellent shape with very little play wear.

Specs are:

Body(Top) - Laminated Flame Maple
Body - Maple(Center Block)
Neck - Maple/Walnut/Maple/Walnut/Maple 5P
Fingerboard - Ebony
Nut - Bone
Bridge - GOTOH/GE104B
Tailpiece - GOTOH/GE101A
Tuners - GOTOH/SG301-EN01
Pickups - SeventySeven/AL255
Controls - 2Vol, 2Tone, Toggle SW
Scale Length - 624mm (24.57")
Width at Nut - 43.0mm (1.70")
Width at 12th Fret - 53mm (2.07")
Depth at 1st Fret - 22.6mm (0.89")
Depth at 12th Fret - 24.6mm (0.97")
Fingerboard Radius - 310mm (12")
Finish - Top Lacquer

I will take more pics later, but these should give you a pretty good idea of how it looks.

The necks are like a '59 depth wise but rounder and feel more full in your hand if that makes sense.

SOLD: Epiphone Japan LPS-LQ GT (Fujigen)



Payment by WISE or Paypal in yen. Several countries went back on the "no Japan Post air parcel" list but USA is still a go and France is back for EMS from Japan. Sea shipment may also be a possibility for some countries at about 10,000 yen less. I'll ship with a decent well-padded gig bag.

My electric guitar stash is down to 10 now but I still need to part with a few more. Here is one from the Fujigen-made Epiphone LQ series from 2006.

This is a fat-necked lightweight LP at just 3.75 kg/8 lbs with frets and neck in good condition. There was a crack in the binding at the first fret on the bass side from some kind of impact. The binding has been re-glued and some of the black lacquer finish that had chipped off has been filled in. The neck itself has no damage at all. The neck is a fat one. measuring 22.5 mm behind the 1st fret and 24.9 mm behind the 11th. The jumbo frets give it a thicker feeling when playing. It is a great sounding and playing guitar. Pickups are Fujigen-made Alnico 5 and I really like them. They give a great range of vintage tones. Have a look at the pictures, thanks.

I think this is the 6th guitar I’ve bought from Wulf. The value and service is just unbeatable. I didn’t even want to buy this, but I couldn’t not!

Needless to say, buy with extreme confidence.

I've been away from this forum for a while, but I'm back on the hunt for a MIJ LP of some sort. Partial to the Grecos and Burnys, but not too picky. @addeamnell , is that '88 Greco you posted still available? Anyone can feel free to DM me if they have an LP they're trying to sell. I'm located in the US for shipping purposes.

As an aside, did something change with the messaging system here? I've previously sent DMs to members before, but I can't seem to find how to do that now.

It is a fantastic guitar. Maybe a little on the blingy side, but not over the top, IMO. Beyond how it looks though, it is definitely a very nice player. Whoever ends up with it will not be disappointed.
I can also back this up I had a black w. Centre block Ex Standard ii (Now sold to a happy local jazz artist here in Canada) and immediately bought it off of me claiming it was the best out of the bunch of other MIJs and new offerings he had tried and he still owns it today and myself I still have a Japan custom before the now JT series they are amazingly made and completely worth the money.
