Here's how the fret "binding" thing looks on my tele....strat is exactly the same...



I love these SD's. There is just something special about them. ESP really put it all into them and carefully. And it looks like they are coming out with new models soon. But with modified head stocks. Maybe they are going to try to tap the US market. Which will mean our old ones could really become sought after...

Honestly though I don't see my self ever selling mine. Especially the strat. To me its one of those life time keepers just because of the smile of amazement it puts on my face every time I play it.

Oh right, I get what you guys and Andrew (guitarsjapan) are talking about! My DS-185 and DS-100 both have those fret-edge bindings/caps. Is that not normal then? I can't remember if my previous maple neck strats had that or not (all recent Fender Japan models and one Fernandes).

DS-280 Pro? Though I thought they were called DS-250 Pro back then...weird.

Definitely a Pro. Basically, as highly specced a vintage-style strat as you can get. Is it a 1 or 2 piece body?

Very nice touch!! Is it not just wood filler? even so it makes for a very tidy finish!

ok stripped apart again and examined under big lights and big magnifying glass!!

conclusion....

no conclusion, lol the pencil could really be anything, looks most like a signature...

... and its probably the best centre-seamed match I have ever seen .. I had to check for at least 5 mins in 4 places inside, to be absolutely sure it was not 1 piece...and I am just about convinced now...heh

I will mark her up as a DS-250 PRO..

No idea....Looks like little pieces of wood to me but the color is slightly different from the neck wood. Yeah it is a nice touch. I haven't seen it on any fender custom shops let alone anything lower.

Villager, I would say 250 is correct. The year makes sense and the 280's are listed as one piece bodies.

Seen this DS-200R at Ishibashi U-box earlier, but now they seem to have dropped the price to 79800 yen on this. If it was of a different color, i'd have bought it already.

Wow, that is a hella bargain for an awesome Strat! But yeah, probably my least favourite of the custom colours. It's been on the u_box for well over a year, so I'm not surprised they lowered the price in the end.

Someone should jump on this:

http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/126932667

Looks like an Alder-body, 57 style DS-200 equivalent. Wonder what it will fetch in the end?

Wow, I think it went for 53000 Yen. That is an absolute steal for a Custom Shop quality strat.
