Hi, Is it safe to say that all Spacey Sounds are good? Is there a SE-500 Spacey Sound and SE800 Spacey Sound? That would mean both guitars are pretty different in specs and price(originally). How do you tell if it's a SE500 or SE700 or SE800? Most of the time, the sticker is gone. I've been searchin...

Thanks guys.
Unless the seller offers it at a really low price, I'll pass.
Absolutely put off by the Transformer pickguard anyway.
(what was he thinking?)

Thanks in advance. h...

Mitch, is it going to be a black oil finish or a black gloss finish?
Would be a waste to cover the nice grain...

That does not surprise me at all. It's an asian/oriental culture. Japanese are a bit extreme but it is common in majority of the Asian societies. "Do as you're told!" or get punished. People are not encouraged to be creative. Has to do with ideology. But things are changing. China being the biggest ...

OK. Learn a little everyday I suppose.... I guess what we see on international news has been filtered. I visited Japan 3 times but just 2-week trips. I liked what I saw and experienced. I liked the way things run on schedule. I like the cleanliness and the courtesy I experienced. I like the "sumimas...

Nice one Vader!! Gorgeous top and a real pretty backside. That first batch of 500 guitars is pretty spectacular. The plaintops are really nice too. Thanks Marcus. Yah, the plaintops are nice too. Now that I'e gotten used to the neck, i find my Greco neck too skinny. :-? I am saving up for a GT with...

Agree. Current Japanese youth are no longer 1-company people like their parents/grandparents. They are also more materialistic and more "westernised" for lack of a better word. But they are still very disciplined people. And they still do take their work very seriously. A lot of it is due to peer pr...

They always have Japanese staff at facilities outside Japan for everything they make...I`ve taught people who work for Sony who had to go abroad. Taught English to guys at the Nippon Paper factory because they get shipped overseas regularly...though not always to English speaking countries. Some ar...

I had this on my watch list for some time. Thanks for saving me from spending more money... :D From the descriptions in the Deviser website, the MIP guitars seem to have quite good quality control and they are also classified as "handmade". (correct me if I'm wrong) They have a team of Japanese staf...
