    Yep. If I hadn’t just made a better more recent purchase I’d be buying that.

    The one thing about those MIJ guitars...they're consistent. So if you miss this one...there will be another.

    I'm lucky. I found mine 37 years ago. :D

    George Harrison played one too. His was a sunburst.

    Note the shipping charge from Japan. It's more like $650ish with shipping and tax.

    My math says $447 + $167 shipping = $614.00

    I even double checked. How's THAT for picking "nits"?

    Notice I also mentioned tax. On Reverb you'll pay a tax for/to most states. Delaware, Florida and maybe only a couple of others are excluded. My last $410 spent on Reverb they took $16.42 to give to Colorado as a state tax. So it may be a scooch under $650.

    You got me! I forgot about the damn tax man! :mad:

    (And the "nit" remark wasn't at you)

    I don't think it's much of a "nit" when already struggling to just pay the ask. To @SonOfLerome it could be a deal breaker.

    I'm not sure how old he is, but I remember my younger days struggling to afford half decent gear...it was very frustrating and sucked.

    Sheesh. It's picking nits IMO.
    It's a guitar. And it's a good price.

    I just shipped an amp. Domestically. It was 132 bucks.

    If you're going to quote me and attempt a correction...be prepared for pushback.

    Picking nits about shipping is picking nits.

    And I noticed some cornfield action. Thankfully, I don't see it.
