Navigator SAs, any good?

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone had info on Navigator es335s?

Just wondering if they were any good and what the specs were?

Did they use braz on any of the models?

Regards.

WTB - Epiphone Sheraton - Matsumoku or Elitist/Elite series

Looking to get an archtop as I've only ever played solid bodies. Would like to stick Japanese. So if theres anyone offloading one, I'm all ears.

Cheers

I saw that Rivieria, sweet as pie! Thats why I;ve been considering an archtop for awhile. If things fall my way, I might gun for a Matsumoku, the Japanese sellers are pushing the prices up though...damn it

Lol Dave, so I am not crazy after all! I've seen Epi Cas's with three TRCs and no FEB but they retain the 3 piece Maple neck construction that is apparently a Matsumoku trademark.

Epiphone Japan Matsumoku

I've heard some pretty good things about them and they have certain features which make them distinct, but I seem to come across variants or different features on them. There are early 80s Epi Casinos with three screw TRCs, some with two. Some have fret edge binding, others don't...but they all have...

Hmmm, i never though 'bout this, but if this century is a century where you are not allowed to say open what you think and show what you feel, then this might be not my century.

Prsman, you should realise Edwards are not meant to be equivalents of Gibson, the Navigators are the ones suppose to be equivalents of Gibson, try them and you'll be blown away by the sheer quality of it!!

Shops are full of them, as in 2007 stock or secondhand sneakyjapan?
