Something different...

  1. Whats crackin' guys. I'm stationed in Okinawa, Japan for the time being, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any type of bass I would be able to find here that you can't really get anywhere else. For example, my roommate keeps telling me about some sort of Les Paul that is out of production now, but was only available in Japan. I'm looking for something along those lines in a bass... just something that I can get as a memento of my misery here... (I hate Japan) But seriously, if this is making any sense to you, and you know of anything, please let me know.

    Perhaps you should consider looking into the local Japanese luthiers. There is probably some great stuff that people in the US wouldn't have seen yet.

    I think Ibanez has some cray stuff in Japan. I mean, really crazy curly violin-esque body guitar/basses.

    I know you can still get new Ibanez ATK's in Japan only. If I was in Japan I would pick one up.
