Re: Anybody ever use services like MailOrderJapan.com or Rinkya?
I can assure you that using any web translator will result in nothing dicernable when it comes to condition, and I've compared all the web translators against my human translator and you would be very surprised at how far off in true meaning they are. And the biggest drawback, you can't ask any questions of the seller. Also, the Japanese pack like crap, because they have [probably] the safest shipping there is. Unfortunately none of these forwarding places do anything but stick a label on. USPS isn't that bad but you're talking barely protected guitars in anything from crap to decent gig bags, expect trouble. Cased guitars are another story.
