Re: NGD: 1st 'real' Inanez (1990 540SFM), let's see your 1st!
I forgot to address the misleading 'Custom Made' inlay in my original post, as I see that everytime one of these comes up. I meant to nip it in the bud, in my frenzy, I forgot. It's a classic case of lost in translation, intentional or not. Having worked for a Japanese company for 10 yrs in the 90s, I found it common for Japanese manufactures/marketers to assign sometimes random (or slightly off) english phrases, or decriptors, to many products to make them seem 'cool' or authentic. (See engrish.com) Similar to people over here getting a tattoo of a Chinese character that they take the tattoo artists word that it means luck, when in reality they have no idea, and they're walking around with 'I'm an idiot' on their bicep. All they were really saying was what Fender or Gibson does when they slap 'deluxe', or limited, etc. on something a bit more up-spec. It had no 'custom shop' mojo behind it, although it kills 90% of what comes/came out of anybody's custom shop.
