Kurosawa is making a new J-custom!!??

The MRG-12 seems to be in production




Looks like the MRG-5

So it's more like the MRG4, very very similar actually:


I think a pickguard is a waste of good wood, but still, great to see Kurosawa continuing the series and better luck with the MRG13

Any idea on the price of these MRG's? What about MRG'5? Are those still in production? Looks much better without the pickguard, imo.

This is almost exactly what I've been looking for. Any idea where I could find one? I didn't see any on the bay.

The MRG5 is no longer in production, it was a 2004 model and all MRGs are produced in very low numbers. Kurosawa still has some MRG11s in stock, those are 338,000 JPY = 3,692 USD/2.566 EUR (here). That's also an indication for the price of the MRG12.

Mahogany or not, I LOVE the way that looks. I prefer pickguards.

Ouch, 498000 yen, that's about $5400 US.
