    Happened upon this one during a random browse, a Jackson Stars Soloist SL-J1EK. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/r289298984 It doesn't look too far off from having specifications similar to Jeff Hanneman's old Soloist. There are some minor differences e.g pearl-type Jackson logo on...

    I found this guy some months ago last year when I was searching for Van Halen YT videos and got really impressed with what I was watching. Just a guy seating on a Restaurant probably on his break time (speculating have no clue), but totally nailing and ripping on the Guitar this amazing...

    I have a black Ibanez RG7421 (the older made in Japan one) with a red/black DiMarzio D-Sonic in the bridge position. Bought this guitar from James about 12 months ago for and have honestly only played it a few times and it hasn't left the house since I bought it. It's a well loved guitar with a...

    Any other fans around these parts?

    Somewhat belated NGD. Randomly got a fascination for Rhoads styled V's and figured I'd grab one cheap. All the MIJ RR's are somewhat pricey at present so I decided to track down a Fernandes version instead. This is a 1985 JS-75, the model below the JS-100 that had the bound neck and shark tooth...

    The kick work. Holy shit. My mind is blown. This guy really has it all. Technique and chops to play anything. I bet you couldn't show him anything he wouldn't be able to play. He even composes, and this is a track he wrote. Also, motherfucker is ambidextrous. Switches it up as he needs to.

    Looking to purchase a Japanese made Ibanez 7-string for $800 or less. Not too picky on what it is specifically - send me what offers you have!

    You've seen this guitar in my Japanese Auction thread. Repaired the headstock and refinished where it's been sanded so it feels great. 27 inch scale RG with a Lo Pro Edge, JB/59 factory set, Ibanez special strap locks that are kind of like Dunlop ones but not shit and all the original hang tags...

    Well the day has arrived where my gear came from Japan. I paid for the single box repack for reasons that will be obvious in a moment. The box itself is sturdy and well taped, and nice enough to keep for shipping another guitar making the 1200Y repack fee well worth it. Inside was the guitar...

    After my Chatting Bird purchase the other month, I decided to trawl more and wander right into the depths of one of them with some google translation. Next thing you know, I've bought 2 MIJ RG's for less than the cost of a Squier. :eek: I don't know what the exchange rates and import taxes are...

  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Well, looks like I've jumped on the bandwagon as well! I saw this baby on eBay and bought it solely on the basis of the fact it was Japanese and it was made in the same year I was. I didn't know anything about the model series, but did some research while it was being shipped (god, customs take...

    I've posted a few live videos by Ulma Sound Junction before, a Japanese progressive metal band that my band used to play a lot of shows with. After I moved back to the states, I started working with the bass player/singer on song titles, lyrics (writing and interpreting the singer's Japanese...

    Finally, after saying to Joel "yeah mate I'll buy it, just gimme some time to get the cash together" about 7 times now, I finally pulled the trigger and bought his Jackson DK2m :lol: Excuse the shit pic, will take more when it's sunny (so June next year, at this rate...) It's the perfect...

    This band combines two of my favorite things in life: Asian women, and death metal! (Yeah, I know, the bass player is pretty "butchy.") https://www.facebook.com/Flagitious.Idiosyncrasy.in.the.Dilapidation

    Wirelessly posted (:sponge:) So, I believe one or two of you have owned similar basses in the past and should know a bit about this. Story goes like this: my buddy runs a studio and is recording my band's EP, and he's been collecting some unique instruments and gear for the studio (for...

    So, my mom is in her 70's, and wants to find ways to make acquiring and reading books easier. She's thinking about a tablet or ipad. She's from Okinawa and speaks decent English, for, an old Okinawan. She's got a couple of questions. If she ordered a device from Japan and had it shipped...
