Well, seeing the US Dollar has recently - this last couple of weeks- dropped through the floor, it's actually under $250 US....

My former boss, Shoyama-san, gave me a lesson a long time ago when it came to exchange rates:

he said: if you run your bsuiness on exchange-rates then you are wrong anyway. do what you believe in.

He was the President/CEO of Hitachi for many years. He still is the chairman.

I've lost and gained through the past 20+ years on exchange rates. But I always had a good hedge. In business you just do.

My advise: Just ignore it when it's about somehing you love, like beautiful guitars. You will win anyway.

During the past 20-30 weeks Tokai-resale/purchase prices fluctuated more then the Kirgistan stock-ex.

So where's the point?
