This is why I shop the Japanese market these days. You'll find ridiculous deals on MIJ stuff and even MIA. The MIM, MII, and MIK stuff is grossly overpriced, though. Only caveats are don't use fleaBay, be wary of Reverb, and be aware that even in GLORIOUS NIPPON there are those who would take advantage of naive or uninformed buyers to bilk the filthy gaijin for fun and profit, but they're easy to spot if you have some basic knowledge of what you're looking for and what's popular to fake. Also, it helps to have a couple of Japanese guitar otaku friends on call/email/text msg for questions or coaching on how to navigate proper cultural etiquette with regards to any potential issue with Japanese customer service that results in a successful outcome and not an online sperg-out like you'd often see on some of the sister-forums.
