I've been super happy with early 90s Chushin Gakki stuff. No special mojo needed -- I think they were putting out consistently great stuff at the time. To look back now and think people probably felt it was inferior to the USA models... I'm not so sure. Apart from some inlay materials and hardware choices, hard to see a difference IMO.
Maybe it's because the Fusion HH was considered a lower end model but my mid 00's DK2M is just as nice and the COW 7 is better than both of them. All three of are excellent guitars though, and in total cost me less than $1k to acquire . That's not happening anymore.
I've been hunting for that Stealth and her Kelly sister for a long time now. Any clue where it is now?
I sold it to a guy in the UK on this forum back in 2014 or 2015. I haven't seen it pop up since so I assume he might still have it. I think I got $1,800 for it which was more than what I paid but a lot less than what it's worth now. Gorgeous guitar with a very Ibanez feeling neck. I can dig through my PMs and see if I can find the buyer's username.
