That’s awesome. Brazen picker!
Good score. I’d love to try one of those Japanese Mustang copies.

Haven't had any issues with CITES yet. Hopefully, i wont with this one either. I don't think anyone really cares about CITES to be honest with you...

I had good luck importing a Mustang from Japan without paperwork last year. I agree, I don't think anybody cares.

Ooh nice! I've got a Kiso Suzuki J-bass copy that I've been very happy with.

There isn't much info going around about Suzuki solid body guitars, but I think "Kiso" refers to the city to differentiate it from the "Nagoya Suzuki" factory in Nagoya.

Here's a recent article:

We all need a blue and red Mustang (I call mine Unit 02 and Unit 00 :D )

TBH - I've always wanted a Comp. as my ideal Mustang; feel like you need an orange now?

Orange, no, dont like the color.. But i agree on having a red and a blue hehee..

The guitar looks like its CAR on that last picture i posted. Its not, its Dakota red.

The neck and playability are fantastic. Im very happy with the guitar.
