that was a topic on another forum when it was on the japan auctions. it went cheap and a lot of us thought, "why the hell didn't i grab that?"

but that's what happens with bacchus guitars. so few people know how sick they are so a lot of them slip through cheap. like my $359 flying V.

Something is shipped and it's not a bullseye or a joyo.

I'm pretty sure they do. I haven't pestered them too much with questions so maybe next time I'll ask why they have it out for you

Why is my need for a Vox AC15 to keep in the bedroom so immense, my friends?

meh don't care rinkya rips them sideways for me.

they all jack you over a little, it's just part of doing biz with japan peeps. nichido inflates the shipping costs (which becomes obvious when you use rinkya).

but rinkya hits you with slightly more fees on higher priced stuff, percentage vs flat fee.

so either way you probably pay about the same amount, it's just slightly more than you expect it to be in the end.
i prefer rinkya's up to date interface, and scotty in the warehouse who takes pics and communicates directly with you. when i communicated with Nichido, it was like talking with a robot. scotty is just like talking with you or anyone else online.

but my big gripe with jauce is if i loaded up my funds and lost on one auction i couldn't immediately try for a different auction, until my cash was back in "jauce acct". essentially losing an auction kept you from bidding on another immediately after since most of the auctions end on a weekend. so you couldn't really use that money for another auction until the following week. if that makes sense.

Yeah but rinkya is a pain if you aren't from the states so that's just a automatic no from me.


As for shipping, I got special packing and I'm using EMS/Fedex. The shipping cost ended up being 150 bucks. I was expecting to pay way more for it tbh.



As for the last bit, I can't share you pain. I'm all about BIN!

you used EMS or Fed ex and for $150, you got EMS.

and yeah, it really is why i bailed on them. when i'm trying to snipe a tokai LS for a reasonable price and 4 of them are ending within a couple hours of each other and i'm bidding against batfuk, chingo and kois... i need to be able to bail on one auction for another and pretty damned fast.

usually while griping, **** you kon****.

Yeah I know that. Hence the /


Maybe I'll try rinkya again one day, but I generally don't shop at places that make it a hassle to spend money, which rinkya did for me. Like, I just want to buy it and for you to send it for me!
