    Hi, newbie here: JJ’s my handle. L

    Thank you all on SS for many forums that have been a big help in making purchases, and for me this was HUGE.

    Got one here in Japan: played it twice at a shop in Tokyo, couldn’t forget it, went back to Osaka (2nd largest city) and a week later...

    4BCDA61E-FCF8-47AA-91B0-5D5D376EFFD7.jpeg Sorry that got posted before I finished.

    I got a 6 string with a maple ‘board.

    All I can say is it is very easy to play so far; the fanned frets cause an optical illusion for me in contrast with the maple, but the fingers fell in to place. It is a VERY high quality instrument.

    The pickups are a bit TOO clear: unforgiving, to be honest (lol). Makes me see I have more practicing to do, really.

    Hiya

    Yep: Kurosawa in Shibuya: their 0% payment plan sealed it! LOL

    I was in Tokyo after almost 20 years with my fiancé and I went to all the shops I’d only seen on Digimart! Lol

    I went to play that axe twice, and just couldn’t forget it (or the price tag lol), so I took a BIG dive.
