    You can order it through the folks at http://www.ishibashi-music.com.

    Importing will be a bit pricy...about $120 I believe for shipping, but Ishibashi's service is top notch.
  3. i couldnt find the takeshi model, and could only see yen do u know a currency converter

    www.xe.com for currency. Email them for a price quote, if they don't have it, they can get it.

  6. God love the Japanese. They struggle so much with the English language. It's comical, but I shouldn't poke fun (hard not too) because besides "Teriaki" and "Toyota", my Japanese is WOEFUL!

    From the website:

    Body to make it dress up in hardware that makes sticking to felt in sound and sticker of rich originality.
    Customizing P-BASS of bassist TAKESHI of THE MAD CAPSULE MARKETS.
    Model equipped with hardware of Badasbrigge, DiMaggio picking up, and sticking to. Only VHW (vintage white) : the body color.
  7. Takeshi ueda is a great bass player! however im not overally taken by his basses! I imagine thats a great p-bass though.
  8. Nice because this one only is 5er in Fender Japan Ps.
    don't like color either...

    You realise this is a machine translation, right? You can tell it from the http://www.excite.co.jp/world/english/web/body/?wb_url=~ part of the URL. Who's struggling now? :p

    The spec page is even funnier, by the way, I especially like "Bus wood" and "Problem". :D
