WHY !!!????  OMG  You can buy when you want this PRS SE Acoustilc but a Mami Stratomaster...

Yea, but I think I'd prefer to wait for reviews from people that get it and maybe get it during another run or something.  Can't really justify getting a Squier at the same price as the SE Acoustic lol.  Plus I have my Mami Strat~


Maybe if the Squier sale is popular enough they'll make a Fender model~

 I hardly doubt they will do a second run for this Sad I don't know anything about acoustic guitar so I cannot give you arguments but, even if you think it's pretty expensive for a squier, it is not that much. Based on what I did with my Mami strat, just apply the same pattern on a jazzmaster might be more expensive than buy this one.

Anyway, it's your choice and it looks like I'm trying to change your mind xD haha
Btw, as I already have Mami model, that's why I took Haru's guitar Happy

It's hard to predict if they will be available again but I'm with Baba on this one, if you are really interested you shouldn't pass on this opportunity, you may not get it again =(

But if you decided that you must have your reasons of course!

Ah, I have no idea what to do right now! But I think I should just go with kitty web, seeing as they've taken my money already. Ugh, if only Ishibashi had contacted me yesterday.

I got an email from Ishibashi that they're readying mine for shipment and they'll ship on the 16th. Mine are still going to Japan (grrr) but at this point I can't really afford to pay for the US shipping anyway. I'll just get them later.

Still waiting for Kitty Web to tell me my Stratomaster is shipping...

I ended up accepting Ishibashi's offer as well. My thinking is that, if they reply over the weekend, I'll know if the guitar is 100% confirmed, and I can safely cancel kitty's order. If they don't reply, I won't pay until at least Monday and I should know if the kitty guitar has shipped or not.

Nice to see everyone's buzzing with e-mails re: impending deliveries. Hmm. Ikebe-gakki's all quiet on the e-mail front on this. Perhaps busy in preparation for watching the Japan v Cote d'Ivoire match... Anyhoo,  my HARU Skullsilver will be shipped this Tuesday. WOOHOO.

BTW - Ishibashi now ships abroad? I wished they make up their minds, man. Still no news on a Stratomaster despite bouvip cancelling his Ishibashi order (hey can't blame a guy for being hopeful, right).

Just out of topic (a bit):

Look what I found on Yahoo! Auctions, dude. ^^



Or if you like, some industrious guy (also on Yahoo! Auctions) has also painted a sparkling silver finish and has the skull on it - done on a Fender Blacktop (the nearest to the Skullsilver. Yeah yeah I know - 1 extra fret. Bonus that!)

Just got an email from Tenso saying my guitar has been received and is ready for shipment! So to everyone that ordered from kitty, it looks like we'll all be receiving the guitars after all! Now I have to go cancel my reservation at Ishibashi, I hope someone here gets it!

UPDATE: It just cost me $130 AUD for shipping and handling on top of the full retail price from kitty. Ouch.

As it says on the tin. Nice! I am so looking forward to the Skullsilver now. Even Bluetus looks gorgeous (sorry, my least fav of the 3 although I did buy one. ^^).

Babaloued - since you may be the first amongst us lot in S-H to receive the guitar, with you already there in Japan, would love to see a photo of your HARU Tele when you unbox it. Onegaishimasu!

I got my email from tenso too. Even though I got free delivery from kitty web to tenso, they somehow deliver my 2 guitars separately. I've got a total of 21960yen to pay for shipping.
I almost fainted when I saw this.  Nose Bleed

Good choice! I saw something on twitter just before about how they were a limited run of around 200 each, but my Japanese isn't that good, so maybe I just read it wrong. Everything so far suggests they won't receive a second run, despite how well they sold.

Ouch, is there no way you can ask them to combine shipping? That's so expensive!

well, tenso's website stated guitars are unavailable for consolidation. even if they're available to consolidate as 1 package, i may have to pay for consolidation fees and the increase in weight for repackaging  may also be more expensive. i'll just pay and wait for my guitar to shipped to me. then again by the time the guitars reach my home, i might be in Japan attending the arena tour.
hope they can reach before i fly. Tears of Joy

just remembered recently i won an auction for a 2nd hand Takamine PT108. Buyee is doing the repackaging for me to prepare for shipping. that's 3 guitars in a month. shipping is a killer...

It looks a lot better in that photo than in the official photos they posted when they announced these. That looks a lot more like her real guitar. I was a little disappointed when I saw those earlier photos, so I'm happy to see this.

I swear to god, though, I'm seeing a regular Jazzmaster bridge on that Stratomaster again. I don't know what's up with that. It was a JM bridge, then it was an AOM, now it's a JM bridge again. Will whoever gets one of these first confirm what it actually comes with?

Yeah, it sucks - but I was expecting it. Ishibashi quoted me ¥34800 or something to ship all three guitars originally, so I was expecting about $100 per guitar no matter what I did. Tenso's asking me for 11,800 plus 1980 service fee for my Stratomaster right now.

Ok guys! This time I really got it lol I will just share picture but cannot make a review of sound as I don't have amp... I bought one of those amPlug from vox but as it's going to be my first time using this, I cannot tell you if it's good or not. I'll edit this post when I will finish to unwrap my guitar :D

Ok here are pictures
Spoiler:



First thing when I unwraped it: "Damn, beautiful...". As you can see, It's not as dark as it's presented. Color looks really similar as Haru's one.

Last time I bought fender, I've got tissu with but as I bought it from a french guitar shop, I can not say if it's normal or not. For reminder, I got it from Kitty Web Shop. So it comes with the guitar,gig bag&strap fender both with SCANDAL logo and, tools

About the guitar, looks good. No visible impacts or something like that. Just about controls, I switched all to maximum and volume'control goes a little bit too far. I don't know how to explain this but I mean the angle... It's not really important.

If you have any questions, just ask and I'll try to reply

I see that it's made in Indonesia which is at a least a step up better than China quality.

How are the frets on it? 

Does it come with any other goodies?

I didn't play with it yet as I have to leave home in a moment but I used to play on Jumbo fret and as this one is medium-jumbo (if i'm not mistaken), it's kinda disturbing lol Otherwise, no one move hopefully xD. Just some frets from the 19th looks rusted but when i touched, it was not

Only goods I mentioned come with (strap, gig bag, tools -> if you count this as a good lol)
