It's not exactly a Tokai and it's rather pricey (it's handmade though), but THIS beaut has some beautiful Sycamore:

I really dig their "puzzle" models (sometimes listed as "pazzle" :D) which have a puzzle-like pieced top made from different woods. Very cool indeed. Their prices seem to be very reasonable considering the specs.

Those Surfcasters are some pretty cool guitars, but I remember the necks being really skinny too. Jackson had their own versions too and I even remember seeing some with Floyd's and humbuckers. Nice score!

I don't know what they are either, but they lasted for a surprisingly long time on mine. They were wayyy light for me, but at the time I didn't see a point in shelling out money for new strings until the originals were done with. Now I have mine strung with DR Hi-beam's in 11-50 (I think; don't reca...

Ok, found one of the "puzzle" (or "pazzle" as they say on here; language barrier issue i suspect :)) designed Fujigens on Digimart: http://www.digimart.net/gk_detail.do?instrument_id=DS00203196 More pics here: http://www.j-guitar.com/sp/sea/view_detail.cgi?pid=10650173 It reminds me a bit of the Con...

I've been eyeing up some current Fujigens lately & certainly wouldn't mind picking up a GF-FH6 (basically a semi-hollow PRS/336'ish type). Ikebe usually has some nice ones on display on their website: http://www.ikebe-gakki.com/shopping_20.php?state=1&cate=1&s_cate=1&brand=79 One of them even has a ...

I agree that there is no "inferior" wood used in my Edwards at all. I think a lot of the wood "grading" has been blown out of proportion by the custom guitar market which has seeped into the rest of the guitar market. You'll have guys who will shell out an extra $2k for a Historic LP with a Brazilli...

Just what joukov said. The Edwards woods may be nice, solid pieces of wood, but they're not going to be the cream of the crop. It takes a builder time to inspect and select top quality woods which usually are hard to come by. Honduras mahogany is what most Gibby LP's are made from (at least the Stan...

Yeah, JP's #1, which this guitar is basically modeled after, has (or at least had) a set of gold Grover tuners on it. I don't particularly care for the look of the brand new shiny gold Gotoh's on my relic'd Edwards Page and may one day change 'em out for some locking Klusons if I decide to keep the ...

The Navigator LP's have fret edge binding from what I understand and are all-lacquer finish whereas the Edwards LT's ("Lacquer Taste") are a poly base with a lacquer top finish. I have one of the Page models and it feels just like an all-nitro finished guitar so I have no beef there. The Navigator l...

Fender Japan is kinda funny in that they have what is basically their "standard" line of guitars which are usually listed on their site, but they also make a LOT of different "unique" non-standard models as well. Ishibashi usually just has the "standard" guitars listed on their site so it could be a...

I've seen special runs done for various Japanese music stores (Ikebe, Ishibashi, Big Boss, et cetera) which, while not exactly what you're getting at, is similar in concept. Fender does it here in the US with their "FSR" guitars which usually go to places like Guitar Center, Sam Ash, Musicians Frien...

As far as I can tell it's more or less just a "fancy" version of a LP Custom: "burl" maple top (probably veneer), abalone purfling around the body/fingerboard/headstock, fancier fingerboard inlays, and transparent colors. Otherwise I don't see much different compared to the regular Custom versions.

Glad to see it arrived in great shape (no real surprise though) and great to see that you're digging it. :) I don't know what the stock strings are, but at least on my Pagey they were actually quite nice and lasted for a loooong time. Definitely on the skinny side for me though so now I have DR 11's...
