I believe I may have posted something from this seller before? :dunno:

What a tasty guitar!
But more to be applauded is the care taken to properly clean it and present it with the respect it deserves. Lots of clear pictures and a complete detailed description as well as shipping info.
Can't beat that!

There is, however, that price thing:
CDN$1,249
https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1678022076

p.s. The seller specializes in Japanese guitars including many Mats models.
He has 9 more guitars listed here:

He sells on Reverb also. I'm kind of shopping around for a black Aria LP Standard, he wants 966 for one and it's full of scratches on the back.
No thanks.

Sorry to hear that.

He seems to have a legitimate business but I gotta wonder where he sources these instruments, especially living in Ayr, Ont.

Ayr isn't exactly bucolic "Mayberry" with Andy Griffin as the friendly sheriff, but it ain't no thriving metropolis neither.

Makes ya think he's possibly buying from Japan and reselling? That might explain the prices. :unsure:

It's alright Barry, I'll survive! :)
Would anyone know if the 1976 Standard I have above is a Fretless Wonder?
They would have lower frets and not something I would like. I had a '75 Greco
once with them and did not appreciate the lower frets. :x
