Sell me all your old guitars for cheap and you'll have a lot of space for new ones.

(someone HAD to post something like this)

well, if you can swing by Japan you have a shot at one of the LS150s... they have 2, a matte finish and a gloss. I asked the mamager to play the gloss the other day because I believe it`s important to not only play a guitar but hear it from a few meters away standing in front of the amp...sounded great. Trouble is...I`m torn between a Van Zandt tele and the Tokais.
See the VZs by following the link. I have one of their strats and they are amazing instruments. Also have a late 70s Tokai Les Paul Reborn so another guitar would just be greed not necessity...still, thats never stopped me before.

yes...Ornettes, Bacchus " Licks ", Sugi is kind of a hybrid LP/PRS, and Yamaha had a model called Image. I`m sure I`m forgetting some...lots of Japanese makers doing excellent work these days.

ESP Potbelly:



Caparison Angelus:



...however neither are "cheap" per-se, but compared to equivalent PRS guitars they probably are. [/img]

yes I`m Canadian but I`m in Japan and it`s the golden week sale.
Those pot bellies cost as much as a PRS here. That particular Caparison is nice but some models are a bit heavy metal for me. I`m real happy with my Ornettes, the newer versions are made from African mahogany but a few years ago they used Honduras and thats what I have.

Yeah, the Ornetts line is very nice & is probably my fave Japanese PRS-ish guitars. Not only do they look great, but they're priced great too. I def wouldn't mind having a GM8R (with P90's) in that "tigers eye" finish they sell. Yummy!

the new ones are veneer and have the logo attached to the headstock...the older ones have the logo inlayed with a rosewood veneer on the back of the headstock too. Still, they are a good deal used.

that's great, but i'm looking to beat the s**t out of my guitars, and hence i am still looking for this supposed toronto tokai sale.

btw, no offence, but i hate prs guitars, and their respective copies.

just looking to see what happened to the original thread topic here.

OK.....once more with feeling... the sale is in Japan...I am Canadian...and living in Japan. The sale is in Japan. I mentioned the price in US funds even though, again, I`m Canadian...I have no idea what sales are going on in Montreal, Toronto or Moose Jaw.
I`d wager most Japanese chain shops are having golden week sales this and/or next week since May 3, 4 and 5th are national holidays and many companies have more days off...like me, I go back to work next saturday, so I get 7 days off.
Hope that clears the sale thing up. sorry for any discomfort cause by my thread.
amen.
