Yeah, it wasn't fake, and in fact was a virtually unused early Reborn GT.
Too rich for me, because it was above the level in Australia where import duty and tax will cut in. 90k yen - $1150 AUD plus about $250 to Rinkya, so $1400 for an LS-50, it's quite a lot! I guess I wont be getting one now... :lol:
Totally biased towards Japanese made guitars.

hi, just curious about the double-ring tuners: I play a 900 LS80 and the original tuners (had to replace 2 by now) have the same lousy, cheap apperaance as on the pics. like Tokai couldn't manage extrusion.

the lady is top notch, but the tuners aren't. any idea why?

cheers, rup
