Thanks. I thought it might be Korean. Thishttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2384&item=2521379040 is Korean too, right? It does add up with the international shipping too. Yea, I think i'll leave that.

What do you think of these?

Yes the Gretch model is Korean. Anything with that large headstock is Korean.

I would add that if the guitar doesn't already have a hardcase, you NEED to buy one with it for international shipping.

In my experience, perfectly well-educated postal staff are mysteriously blind to words like 'Fragile' or 'Handle With Care'.

Hello Sam,

The Silver Star is the better guitar, IMO. It's almost 20 years old, looks in decent shape, has a narrow neck for good playability and the big headstock (which I think beefs up sustain a bit, and looks cool). I own two, a 7okai (early 70s replica) with an even more narrow neck (1 9/16), and a Tokai (the 1976 replica) with a 1 5/8 neck. I play them all the time, even over my Fender Hendrix Tribute Strat. The pickups are excellent, as well. These are real sleepers. Even with shipping, they're a deal. The only thing I've had to do is make sure that the 3-bolt screws are nice and tight, because I've had some neck play when I first got them - I snugged them and they're fine now. I'm almost tempted, but then I have no more closet space, and I would be put out on the street if I did by She Who Must Be Obeyed.

Steve

Yea-

I dont know. If I lived in Japan I would. I'm not sure whether I should just wait for another one to come along located in EU. But that may be some time...
