Ishibashi is the best place to get one (that's where I got mine), but they are not shipping to the US anymore. They do show up on Ebay and I believe the sellers are very reputable.

It is a ripping Tele and a ton of fun to play. The Dimarzio's are hot and it screams. It also has a big fat neck, 12 radius, if my memory serves me right.

A friend of mine owns the sea foam green version, and it's one of the nicest playing and sounding Tele's I've ever played. I'd have one in a heart beat if they still shipped to the USA.

I've been lusting for one for quite some time!

They go for really cheap though, I believe you could probably get one new for about a grand.

?? how much were import taxes?

When Ishibashi was selling to the US, I purchased from them 4 times and never incurred import or duty fees. Shipped very quickly (2 days) via EMS and cost about $120.

Guitar price + shipping and that was it.

This seems like a model that would do well in the US. I wonder why they don't make it for domestic purchase?
