Well, a couple of positive notes. The seller indicates its about 7.5lbs (which is a fine weight for me for a strat) and stated it's definitely a chunky C profile which is AWESOME!
I figured out how t ...

"OK, well I hope you know how to use split-post tuners, unlike the seller!"

I just bought it. Their feedback rating is okay based on the number of items they have sold (over 4000) and they offer a 10 day trial period and a 30 day warranty period. Can't ask for more than that ...

I apologize, I actually DID have my location specified in my profile, but under my signature (which doesn't show for some reason). Anyway, it's corrected and yes I am in the US.
I guess it's not a f ...

Hey fellas, I'm trying to research this one as I'm in need of a great strat for little money and I'm concentrating on MIJ stuff and branching out from just MIJ Fender. This looks pretty sweet but I'm ...

Ebony fretboard? Wow! I like this one!

How can you tell it's an ebony board? I mean, it's very possible being the entire guitar is deep black, but you never know with these MIJ guitars. I agre ...

Anyone have any history or info on this Fernandes superstrat from the 80's? I'm intrigued because it has the correct headstock and the price seems pretty low, even with shipping from Japan. I had a Fe ...

Nitro or Poly?
Weight?
Pickups? (the RI's came stock with 57 Classics, what's in this one)?
I assume it's NOT a RI because no fret edge binding?
Is the top real wood or a veneer over top maple?

I've been eyeing up a few ObG's on ebay, but I don't trust that the sellers would know for sure if the finish on a guitar is nitro or light poly. I know that I would have a tough time telling the fini ...

I Burny '56 model with P90's is pretty much my dream guitar at this point. But, I would definitely need the Logo and script in tact. Anyway, cool guitar(s). Enjoy!!!

Confused, definitely looks MIJ (and says MIJ on the back of the headstock) but I've never, ever even heard of the Neo Select line by Tokai. Cheaper? No Good? What do you think?
