Yesterday while checking out some stores I found one of these for an irrestistable (but unattianable this side of Xmas and my holidays) price - seven hundred bucks Australian. Haven't bought it yet, but thinking about it. Just wondering if they're particularly rare or desirable. I'm sort of collecting odd little Japanese RGs that don't typically find their way to the western market.

It plays fantastically, great fast neck, smooth action, only two little chips on the front edges and discolouration of the neck plate. Some pretty whopping big finish cracks at the neck joint but that's to be expected.

I'll see if the store will take a few no-longer-used pedals as a downpayment.

The flame is much more obvious than in this catalog pic...

Do you like guitars with neckplate?

AANJ is much better.

Well put it this way - neither style has managed to slow me down
