We bring in a few. They don't make a lot of commercial sense here as they start to get expensive once GST and the like is factored in on their LPs and such. We bring in generally the more expensive signature ones as the costs are more easily absorbed. When it comes to LPs we have Tokai and we're more than happy with them in comparison to Edwards. The lower priced Vs and Explorers from Edwards can also be a bit hit and miss, so adding extra to their price and then finding some not really up to snuff would not be fair to the punter.

cheers for the reply, makes much more sense now. so it would be possible to have them commercially available, just that it wouldn't be a very wise business-decision?

Pretty much. The more expensive ones we do a lot, anything under sort of 130,000 yen or so just gets too expensive for what it is.

Not available at this stage, these are the standard available models http://guitarsatbmusic.com.au/forum/vie ... =18&t=9520 Others can be special ordered, but expect delays of at least two months doing that.

Thank you...

Can't wait for these to be available here...I'd rather order through you than go through the rigmarole of ordering online.
