    mazman,

    I've had one for about 3 months now. Excellent playing and sounding guitar. I really like the SD pickups (they are surprisingly quiet for P90's) and the neck is nice and chuncky (the way I like it). My tech set the action really low..now I know what they meant by fretless wonder... it's so easy to play. There were no finish or cosmetic flaws whatsover. The high E string saddle needed to be adjusted, but that was it right out of the box. You'll enjoy it.

    That's my favorite Edwards Les Paul...I wish the made it in a lefty version...on a related note, back in December and old band of mine did a reunion show...our other guitarist Peter Stroud shows up with an original 1956 Les Paul Custom...awesome guitar.

    Was my 1st Edwards purchase. Bought from Tak at Katana guitars. Wonderful and flawless. Great transaction. Put Wolfetone vintage P90`s and a RS wiring kit. Enjoy!

    Is there any import tax due when ordering one of these from Japan to the USA?

    I had one for a while; it was an all mahogany body. Is the one you're buying a maple top? I mighta liked mine better if I got rid of the overly hot Duncans; sounded too Clapton-y. Sold it to get a sixties SG; I'm much happier now.
    I used to play a '56 (or was it a '55? It was on loan.) LP Custom, and the Edwards was not even close. Well, they look somewhat similar...
