  1. I agree. Here I see these guitars with other name brands on them and as I mention, most Les Pauls copies go for under 120 USD and Strat style guitars range from 65 USD on up, not much more over 120 USD unless it has a well known name like History (made in China). Here's an example: https://www.soundhouse.co.jp/products/detail/item/9920/
  2. It seems the pictures are of the real stuff, but the prices for the semi-body guitars seem to be off by about 20 to 50 dollars. The site itself looks OK, but when you read the fine print, now that's another thing. Pretty blank on the actually "total" cost of what one might occur. No, I would not buy on that site. The brand name means nothing and has the possibility to be seized at the US Postal office. Something to think about. Also 5 password characters seems to be a bit low in my thoughts. Also when I type in Japan, its not set up to give the prefectures. Check out these prices: https://www.alibaba.com/showroom/guitar.html Good luck
  3. Yes, its a Fernandes bass and for 60 bucks, its not a bad bass at all.
  4. I got this one for about 60 usd and the amp for 25 usd. Nothing wrong with it. Plays real nice and the amp, well, its solid.
  5. OK, went to the pawnshop today. Bought an old Vox Pathfinder Bass 10 amp for about 25 USD Got this bass there also a while back for about 60 USD all set now Yippy!
  6. Need something between 75 to 140 bucks. Like to buy it online. Thanks.
  7. Funny how time goes by so fast. Most of us now are in our 60s and remember coming home with a Sears Silvertone guitar form Sears with our parents.
  8. That's pretty cool. Thanks.
  9. Kind of country, but more trendy of a new era of music in Nashville. Glad to see him going this way. Getting back to ones roots is the natural process of aging when getting up there in age.
  10. Be interesting to see the new set-up on the forum. Hope to see some VERY cool smilies too.Thanks Dendy
  11. Nice write-up Phil. Makes a person really want to head out to a Fender dealer and try one out. I wonder what the retail price is on it. You didn't mention it. Thanks for the write-up.
  12. Have you been to Tokyo, guitar street, you'd love it there.
