Hi guys... I have a problem!

I´ve been a Loudness fan for many years and now I'm thinking of ordering a Killer guitar directly from Japan. Have anyone seen or played one? I´ve found this one,

http://lib5.store.yahoo.co.jp/lib/ikebe ... -SW-06.jpg

a white KG-Exploder on the net and currently im thinking of taking contact with the Killer factory and tell them to ship one to Finland.

BUT!

I've never tried one or seen one in real life and with a pricetag of 1500$ for "middle class" killer guitar... is it a good gamble? I have pretty high hopes in Japanese guitars but what do you think?

Never played one..but I do know a japanese website that sells em...
Not sure if they ship to finland or not..but that exact guitar is only $1060 USD..without shipping..depending on how much it'd cost to shipping if they do ship it to Finland.. I know from Japan to US the shipping is $150-$200 bucks

edit: Now that I read the link..I think we're talkin bout the same site..if it is indeed ikebe-gakki.
The guitar is listed as 112,500.00 JPY when using XE.com it converts its to $1060.76

Nice avatar! What do you think about I.V?

I've read somewhere on the net about a guy in USA who ordered a killer guitar directly from the factory and he got it without problems so I'm thinking about doing the same, but it's a a little bit more expensive there according to http://www.killer.jp/

I've estimated the overall price to be $1500 with flightcase and shipping I should have stated that in the previous post... so, the price for the guitar is $1060 what do you think mate? Is it worth the gamble? Good looking guitar :)

If you feel safer getting the flightcase i'd go that way.
I asked one of the people from ikebe-gakki how they'd go about shippin' a guitar if i bought one.....
Said he'd make sure it was properly packaged so it wouldn't be damaged..

I haven't heard I.V yet though.

Cool...

I was just browsing the forum for Akira Takasaki and stumbled upon my old post :P ... I actually went to Tokyo a couple of months ago and bought my very own white Killer KG-exploder!

Excellent guitar! I totally recommend them!

i thought about buying one a few years back, so I sent an email
to the head of the company(George Azuma) and he was great.
Even sent me a Killer( :twisted: ) catalogue ;)
