This showed up the other day, but needed some time to settle in since it came from Ishibashi. I haven't given it a proper tidy yet, I'm waiting for some locking tuners to show up before I give it the treatment. Either way - it's in pretty good shape for an 18 year old fiddle. It plays really well but the frets definitely need some love, it has an insane bout of fret sprout that I'll probably end up taking to a pro to fix.
The usual stufd: mahogany body, maple neck, boring rosewood. The pickups are "Killer Guitars LQ-500 and Dyna-Bite" which I've never heard of, but they sound pretty damn good so I have no plans to swap them. The mini switch does mag/mix/piezo, and it has a coil tap as well. I hope I never ever have to work on the electronics on this thing.
Anyway, here's the "it never actually looks like this" shot:
And what it really looks like:
I always liked the VV finish and this actually popped up when I was aimlessly poking around for 2027s. I don't really care for sevens anymore so this being a 6 was a bonus. Shipping from Ishibashi was super fast, and customs was something like $125 on a ~$1500 guitar.
