    i was just looking at this page on the rici site and noticed that i would have to buy from these guys... but the price seems quite low and i thought maybe they were made in japan ..a bit like the fenders are which then got me wondering about quality and do they come stamped with "crafted in japan " on them which migh affect the resale value?? so many questions eh. :bassist:
