Loves me a single-pupper, on a red Cardinal too?!
To have them together is just peachy! :love:

Not sure if I like a trem on it though. :unsure:

Here it is on eBay... https://www.ebay.com/itm/325988203858?epid=838502867

If you wait, it might appear at a lower price under a different seller name on eBay or Reverb. Seems like there's someone or a group in Japan that lists the same guitar several times. Makes me wonder who really has it.

If I were buying guitars, I might go $400 with free shipping. I've never played one of these, but like the idea of a CS neck combined with a trem. I'd be tempted to add a single coil near the neck. Luckily I don't have the skill and I'm not buying right now.

I think it was Wutz that said some Japanese sellers list guitars they find on Japanese auction sites and if they sell it they buy it on the original site and drop ship it to the purchaser.

If I see the same guitar for sale by multiple sellers (and I see it a lot) I pass it up.

The way I see it that is the same as ticket scalping. :no:

I knew I'd get somebody with that. :devil2: Don't worry, I wouldn't carve up a nice clean guitar like that.

I sometimes see one listing where there's a fairly detailed description of the guitar, then some others where there's almost no info. I think the more complete listing might be the "real" seller. Haven't bought any.

That seems like a risky gamble for the "seller" to take but, yeah, it is an underhanded thing to do I an I guess they make a buck or two by doing that.

Is this by chance part of the same activity I see a lot on eBay where there are apparently lots of Matsumoku (and other) Japanese made guitars for sale by Japanese sellers, but look suspiciously like the same guitar in each ad? :toopid:
