The leap in price from a EGF1000 is GIANT since they are not selling for 80000 yen. But that's what rarity does to the prices i guess
Yes the luxury houses and 50's LP's will probably stay untouched in the rescession, there's always a market for those.

exactly...

the other reason that EGF-1000 is not selling at 80000 is because its been refretted, (if thats the one you are looking at,) and that for a dealer loses some value, also EGF-1000's are pretty common in comparison to 1200's so that accounts for a lot, also 80000 + taxes + shipping + fees is nearer 120000.

John..you know me too well..

I don't understand why Yasushi would list an EGF-1200 for only 157,500 yen; that's just insane & is like throwing money down the toilet

And I also don't see why someone in Japan would not have snatched it up, before it was listed on his web site & offered abroad

Specwise 1000 and 1200 don't seem very different, and that can't have been the intention considering the 20000 yen difference.
I'm sometimes very tempted jumping the collectors train, but I'm not going to do it, at least not now

maybe I should say an under-valuation rather than a mistake, I am sure yasushi made a decent margin on it...

specs-wise they are not very different, but if I had to choose to pick up and play a 1000 or a 1200, I would always choose the 1200, thats just my preference. I know I prefer a 1200 over a 1000, but I also choose a 1200 over an 1800 to play sometimes, thats more of a 50/50 thing though..

Neck size? Pickups? What amp are you playing through and what kind of music do you play?

Here's another one on hold, but no price:

necks generally a tad bigger on the 1200's, but not always, and DRY-z pickups vs dimarzio's,

I play through a cornford hellcat, fender blues junior, rat modded blackheart little giant, and a 100w ceriatone OTS, all kinds of music..

thats not on hold, its sold, it just remains there to get people to look at his other stuff, thats very common in Japan... that one did not have the original DRY-Z if I remember correctly, and was still over 200000 yen when I enquired a couple of months ago when it first appeared....

Great amps! And I like the bigger necks too.
So they are little teasers

heh yes.. there was a beauty of a 1200 about a year or 2 ago, that was on hold for around a year... and even though I knew it was gone, i still used to click through to the guys shop after looking at it again and again, so it works...

"Modified pickup TONE DRY-Z is also similar to the characters and a shiny ring strain in the well-off rich overtone. "

Yep.
