Sweet! Just got my new axe in the mail today.

It's a 2005 LS-150. I wanted a high quality guitar so I was looking at the 135. But I'm a sucker for flametops and the 230 was just top much cash. After reading lots of great things here about the 150, I searched on Yahoo Japan, found one, and e-mailed the shop. Some of you may have seen my touts for Takashi at 'Kisada' in Hiroshima already but I just can't say enough about this guy's service. Great communication, awesome detail in answering my questions, and great packaging. If you're looking for a guitar from Japan, I'd strongly recommend him.

Anyways, I've got some pics of it but I can't seem to figure out how to post them. Can anyone tell me how?

Congrats on the new baby.....you have to use a hosting service to post pictures here. Go to www.photobucket.com and sign up there. It's free and it's really easy. You can post your photos there and then copy and paste them on this site.

It's a matte violin finish although it looks quite a bit more 'cherry' in the pics.

Hi, using Yahoo currency converter, it works out to 581 pounds including the guitar, shipping, and duty on my end. The actual guitar itself was 407 pounds.

If you're looking for a source, try the guys I bought mine from, Kisada. Great English, awesome service, and good packaging. My contact's name was Takashi. Here's his e-mail:

pickers@kisada.com

If you do contact him, please tell him Jason told you about the shop. I told him I'd try to send some business his way since he was so good with my transaction. Good luck.

Better way to post pics from photobucket.com is to click on the last option
IMG code, click on it,not all the url b...^&*(, just the IMG code, it will say copied, go back to your forum and RIGHT click & PASTE, use the preview option before you post to make sure it works
here is an example of the above


Hope this helps and keep them pics coming bro!!
