    Hi,

    http://www.fenderjapan.co.jp/top.htm

    Does somebody know how to contact the shopkeepers found through the link above? It just shows gibberish (????????) to me, so I thought maybe some of you have dealt with them in the past and can share the experience.

    Another one: do they ship Internationally (specifically to Europe)?

    If you're looking for Fender Japan stuff, try Ishibashi Web Shop. Used them several times, everything perfect.
    Fender has just recently put some restrictions on Ishi, so they might not ship to Europe anymore, check with them via email:
    web-shop@ishibashi.co.jp
    You can always go used, no restrictions on used stuff:
    http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/u_box/

    The Fender Japan site you came up with is not a shop, simply Fender Japan's homepage.

    Hope this helps.

    Ishibashi is awesome. My local forum(in Singapore) has nothing but good stuff to talk about them.

    I sure hope that I'll come across a Fender Japan 62' Sunburst fretless jazz bass there...

    Japanese companies usually accept payments only in YEN whether in cash or credit card. For international shipping, they prefer Postal EMS (Express Mail Service) . However, upon your request, other delivery companies maybe used.

    Added info: If you want to visit Japanese websites, be sure that Japanese language support is enables in your computer or else the characters will only show like these ???????????.

    Yep, codepage change needed.
    It helped me tremendously to understand these sites. :D

    Roughly, the conversion is about 100 yen to the dollar right now (103 yesterday), so move the decimal to the left two places and that is the approximate price.

    Shipping is usually between 90 and 110 dollars for a bass from Japan to the US.
