    I'm trying to find a way to buy a couple of basses from shops in Japan that won't ship abroad.

    If there's anyone here that's based in Japan I'd love to hear from you and see if we can work out a way of getting basses shipped to me.

    cheers,

    Paul.

    済まない、日本人じゃないけど、少し日本語が出来るさ。元気か?一番好きなベースギターはどれ? :D

    ち、文法が嫌いなぁ。。
     
  3. I clicked in hoping you were talking about people playing Japanese basses, not Japanese people playing basses. ;)

    well I do play Japanese basses, hence the unfortunately ambiguous thread title ...

    hai, I'm in nara right now, but I go to osaka every now and then. Just picked up a fender aerodyne (japanese edition of course) so I can check out some stuff if you want. phxlbrmpf, I've lived here for half a year and I have no clue what you said :( I read nihon a few times, but I haven't mastered the whole three alphabet deal yet ;)

    I wrote "Sorry, I'm not Japanese, but I speak a little Japanese. How are you? What's your favourite bass?" I then noticed I had made a grammatical mistake and added "Damn, I hate grammar." I hope you're getting through daily life okay given that you can't read Japanese, it's almost impossible to learn if you don't have lots of free time like me. :D

    I'm in the UK - I've ordered a couple of basses from Ishibashi and a couple are on their way from Gakkido, but some shops won't or can't ship to the UK

    I collect Yamaha SB (60s) and SBV (modern) basses - mainly as they're relatively cheap :D :D

    basses I'm trying to track down are

    SBV-500 - Pearl Green and Pearl Snow White

    SBV-550 - Seafoam Green

    BJ-5B - Pearl White

    all of which have been discontinued but I'm sure there are enough out there for me to track them down eventually ..

    SB-2A - all colours (single pickup model) red/white/blue/sunburst

    SB-5A - I have a red and a white, I believe there are also sunburst and blue models

    SB-7A - I have a sunburst, so still red blue and white to find ..

    I know they're not the best basses in the world, but I love 'em :D
