They sell ErnieBall
I didn't even know that there were Japanese built SR's. Not bad.
When did this happen? anyone know anything more about these MIJ stingrays????
What about this suggests that these are MIJ??
They sell imported American products as well as MIJ products don't they???
If you go further down the list, you'd see MIJ Stingrays that actually have "Ernie Ball Stingray" on the headstock.
Taken from Ishibashi website:
MUSICMAN StingRay EX-TB [MADE IN JAPAN]
String-thru bridge for the Japanese version is now available in wide variety of colors. Includes gig bag.
That's pretty suggestive.
i would definitely want to try to try out one.. those look yuumy!!
Yes, they produce MIJ ERNIEBALL StingRay n sterling, but it cost quite a bit....
+-1000 without tax and without delivery fee....
their MIA Sr costs 1604
here, a mia Sr retail at +- 2500 .....
the japans shipped
is 1,190.26 USD. no that bad.
i would actually buy this instead of the us. just to have. who else has one?
I could get a USA for the same $$$ if not cheaper.
Japan costs alot of $$ when it comes to basses/guitars
I saw a Sadowsky USA in a japanese bass magazine for 350000 yen.. which is around $3300
I wonder how much the Sadowsky Tokyos cost in Japan
At $2400, they ain't exactly cheap over here in the States!
We've had a batch of Stingray copies hit the shelves here in Australia that appear to be licensed by Ernie Ball. The brand name is OLP which stands for official Licensed Product (they didn't waste too much time thinking up a brand name, that would be inneficient-sarcasm intended). They're a third the price, look pretty close, so I rushd out to try one. What a waste of time that was. It sounded like a cheap Onyx. Something tells me these are the same ones.....
a guy over in the dude pit, that is lives over in japan, said that the fret work looked so bad he didn't even try one. he didn't want to cut his hands!
he said it was like this on the two basses he saw.
those basses wears ERNIE BALL stingray on the headstock ....
OLP is also passive basses, here they're actives..
Thread is 8 years old.. haha.
bugger just noticed....wow
and now iv deleated my message ...Double bugger.
i give in....
if they really make SRs in Japan( the link doesn't seem to work properly where i am ) I'd be quite tempted.
I have (or had) a catalog from around 2001 or 2002 from the Japan EB factory. I was interested because they had string-thru bridges and a few other pre-EB features.....anyway, I'm not surprised the link doesn't work as I was told they shut down years ago.
