    Japan is at least five years ahead of us in terms of technology. Internet equipped cellphones? Done. Handwriting recognition? Done. Portable plasma displays? Done. Translation: what you see exported to the US is at least five years old! If you're ever in Tokyo, check out the Akihabara electronics mecca and prepare to have your mind blown.

    I think the same thing goes for their music technology. I've posted this link before, but check out


    BTW, the basses depicted on this site have been available for the last ten years.

    Yamaha, Aria and Fender Japan also make a couple of instruments you will never see on these shores. I don't have links, but poke around on the web; there are pictures of them, as well as wierd stuff from Atelier Z, Guitar Maniac, Moon and others I probably can't pronounce. Tune is the tip of the iceberg.

    http://www.bassalone.com usually has some Tunes. Toys From The Attic had a used 6 at the Philly Guitar show.

    A Tung is much harder to find.
