Here is a translation NOT the translation:

"NEW JACARANDA< [niyuhakaranda] >
are high-class in just [hakaranda] and the [yu] [u]!! As for
the laughing place of origin the South America/Africa
mainly feature of the ☆★ wood which is used as the side material
back material: Weight a little more heavily is the [me].But, it is superior in durability and also sound is good.
Feature of sound: The sound to which attack is strong, dries sounds.
As for this, the one which you think that [hakaranda] it is cheap comparatively? It is not [bu] [tsu] [chi] [ya] [ke] [hakaranda]!!
Natural shape is the rose wood!!
The first class mahogany (the Honduras rose wood) is called NEW JACARANDA*"


It appears to be in reference to acoustic guitars. Some say that Jacaranda = Brazilian Rosewood when referring to fret boards, but I haven't found much on the web to back that up. So what is New Jacaranda? The translation above seems to say it is first class Honduras Mahogany or "Honduras Rosewood" which seems a little strange? The Jacaranda tree is definitely in the rosewood family, so using the name rosewood to mean mahogany doesn't seem right. It could be like a slang term or urban myth or something.

After a while you get used to Jinglish, that one says the the "new jacaranda" is Honduras rosewood.......not the mahogany..

There is an older Momose MST strat with f-headstock at Ishibashi U-box, if somebody's interested.

http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/u_box/e/

They have however mixed up the pictures with two listings. At the moment the Combat strat listing has the Momose pictures and Momose listing has the Combat pictures.
MOMOSE MST 3TS - this has Combat ST pictures
COMBAT ST 3TS - this has Momose MST pictures
