Read it again Poida. The Americans pay a lot for German amps, very similar to what we do for most everything from other countries as their conditions for German import are the same as ours are for imprt from most other countries. Free trade won't do much, 5% duty drop, still have the same conditions...

Possibly the paint, but not for the foreseeable future, have to do runs of three like we're doing with the white Eclipses to get custom standards at the moment. The inlays, nope, no way.

I understand that Poida, and as I said, I do the same if I know the facts. Mesa is a different study though, that company's policies are kinda different and make things difficult for anyone outside the US (and even in the US to some degree).

Shane's epic essay on US vs Australia pricing

OK, I've been meaning to do this for a while. This will be added to and expanded as new thoughts come up, but it's basically a place for me to link to when I get e-mails of the ilk I will discuss now. We often get asked the question, "why is it so much cheaper in the United States" etc. etc. And som...

Zorlac MM-290 and others

I'll go first shall I? Considering all the photos we take and all the fuggin' photos I have pretty amazing that I don't have any pics of much of my shit.

I don't know Matt, I doubt it. Remember, things with ESP Japan are far different down here than over there. You may be able to, but I neither know, nor care :P

You'll need the neck first, definitely. You HAVE to know exactly what the neck's specs are, they can change, even between one brand's own necks over time.

Are you building the neck??? Big, big job to build a neck man. If you're buying the neck then you would need to find out the neck tenon width and depth etc. I'd not be building the body much beyond the basics until I had a neck in my posession to be honest.

Probably looking at a couple hundred bucks for the Alexi stripe rorarke, a guess. White M-II Neck Thru I reckon would really put the C.C. Deville back in modern music :P

'Custom' Standard Series

OK, after much discussion Japan have come to the party with a definitive answer (well, as definitive as ESP Japan can get). This straight from the 'horses mouth' as it were: 1. Pickup change Acceptable. No extra charge for switching to Seymore Duncan from EMG. Need some difference for the opposite c...
