I see lot's of posts on ESP, Edwards, Orville, Burny etc. Consider this a public service post. Almost ALL NEW Jp guitars can be had from Ishibashi in Japan. They have 17 stores and their service is top notch. They are cheaper than all the jap resellers on ebay. They take plastic too. In fact this is where the resellers get a lot of their guitars from. They just call them 2000's model instead on brand new , or NOS. Used guitars, Orville, Tokai, Greco ,Etc. Go to www.yahoo.com click on auctions, click on Japan. Type in the brand name you are looking for. Surprise !! there they are , at about 40-50% less than you're paying on ebay. Now buying from there is a little tricky, most of the sellers won't ship overseas--sound familier ? - but if you can find someone who speaks Japanese you can email enough sellers till you hit on one who will.
