    Otherwise known as the 'skyline' series perhaps?

    IIRC, they're the same as the Skylines but made in Japan (instead of Korea.) Thus, "Shoreline" instead of "Skyline." I could have dreamed this, however, and be speaking directly from my posterior.

    Shorelines are different from the Skyline series in the sense that the Skylines get final setup done at the US Lakland factory while Shorelines never leave Japan. They are made there specifically for that market and are not exported. Thusly I have never seen one.

    The Shorelines have graphite reinforced necks.
