I have been playing my History ZSA-CFS (ES335 clone) recently, and I have also picked up a new Gibson electric. (ES195).

The History is a relatively cheap guitar. You can find used ones online for ...

I am not too proud to accept help finding a place that has the ones I need!

Maybe the people you know have good taste. I may have ...

Checked out Alpha pots. I can't find any that fit a small hole AND allow coil-splitting.

I thought I'd come back to this thread and point out that this has turned out to be a very sweet guitar. I put a Bigsby and a Vibramate on it. The pickups are wonderful for blues, and the neck is very ...

I guess I'm stupid, but I already ordered the Pearly Gates pickups. Maybe they'll do it for me. I wonder how many people have thrown out their L8000 pickups, when people like me would have been happy ...

I guess I'll try the Pearly Gates pickups and see what happens.

I have a Matsumoku Burny Les Paul with what appear to be L8000 pickups. I know most people think these pickups are undesirable, but I like them a lot. I'm interested in blues, not hard rock, and these ...

I think the 335 copy was a better deal, although the brand-new ZLS was definitely a bargain.

Wish I could just walk into a shop and haggle, but when you live in the US, all you have is the Internet ...

If this thing retails for over 100K yen, I feel pretty good about the deal I got.

The guitar I just bought is a near-mint condition ZSA-CFS (ES-335 dot) in cherry. I can't figure out the reason, bu ...

When I asked Shimamura what the differences between the ZLS-90CFS (my guitar) and the newer LPs were, they said:

ZLS90CFS was discontinued in 2007 and different from our current models.
I think th ...

I like it a lot. The Circle Fret thing seems to be for real, because the intonation is very good.

I have noticed that some FGN (Fujigen house brand) guitars also have the Circle Fret system.

This one has a sycamore veneer top. I don't know if that's good or bad.

I have already bought my second Japanese Les Paul. I need therapy.

A while back, I bought a Matsumoku-made Burny, and I loved it, so I kept shopping. I found a crazy deal. Some guy had a grey " ...
