Not specifically, but you could always convert the price in Yen to USD (or whatever currency you use) on XE.com. It's probably gonna be like a list price, so you could knock about $200 off of what you got for the price you would pay.

Scroll down further for the Edwards model, that's the Jap equivalent of LTD Although, apparently there's no Rebel model there... Which is kinda sad, cuz usually artists have ALL their models available as Edwards models...

**** yeah, Hitsugi.

Seriously though, I don't think it would be worth buying a Japanese sig guitar unless you actually lived there. It's just too expensive.

True. Custom Shop prices for custom quality guitars though, the Jap guitars (especially the sigs) rival and even surpass most American guitars in quality and playability.

If I had the money, I'd be all over that Hitsugi sig, and maybe a Lynn. I'm not made of money unfortunately.

Damn Jackson and Fender and Gibson for not sharing their shapes with a (frequently) superior company in the US, but instead sharing EVERYWHERE ELSE ON EARTH

^ Sadly, probably the latter. Fender and Gibson would probably go out of business, and Fender would have to sell Jackson back to it's rightful owner, thereby creating a Jackson/ESP laden guitar community like in the 80's, with Dean and Ibanez (amongst the countless others) lingering on the sidelines for the most epic guitar battle in the history of the universe.

That would be awesome or we could just the masses to send in letters or emails or constant calling sooner or later someone snap and just end up going crazy or we suck it up and wait to see what ESP/Fender/Gibson do.

Or we could just continue to save up and pay for our sexy illegal guitars from Japan and brag about how much it cost and keep people from touching them.


But who wants to do that?

If you want to import a Crying Star, I emailed Ikebe-Gakki a while ago. The price for the Edwards CS-160 is around 1800 USD plus import tax, it's pretty expensive.

It's pretty obvious by the headstock its an ESP, so just check out their strat copies on the Japanese ESP site. Odds are though his is modded, I'm not certain that it is but odds are it probably is.

WHat a complete waste of time and effort, why would you make a guitar http://www.espguitars.co.jp/artist/kouichi/index.html

for this guy, he barely plays it.

More of a fashion accessory than anything.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Don't make uninformed judgements. He was a guitarist in another band before going solo.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=xS-V4tHbC_Y (solo starts at 2:04 if you're lazy)

Besides, you don't have to shred to be good, let alone get a signature guitar. Guitar companies are a business, and rely like any business on making money. Popular artists do this the most effectively.

^Look more into it. In actual performances it looks ****ing amazing under colored lighting (probably the working functional scheme of the design besides the aesthetic nature).
