      Its alright but the people here are quite boring, everyone`s pretty bent on just making the same kind of guitar over and over again. Nakameguro huh? Pretty convenient location. So you formed a band then? What`s it called? Never heard of the bands you mentioned but I guess I can make time to go see them since I have nothing better to do.

      Long time no see. Are you still at the old place or have you moved? I have been at the ESP guitar crafting school for the past two years. I just wanted to know how you're doing and thought we could catch up at the Sikth headliner in October.

      I came around 7 to your place, but you weren`t home. I`ve left the CD in the letter slot, so just open the door slowly.

      Ahh yeah. Np I`ll come around in the evening from work tomorrow straight home. I have to take some of my stuff home. Is that alright with you?

      Yeah... I was reading studies and stuff that suggest that the next big quake is gonna be in our area. I`m just hoping its not gonna happen while we`re here.

      Did you just feel that? Is was right under us!
      I`m not liking this at all man.

      Ahaha. Now I`m just gonna scan the rest from the office scanner for the people on here.
      The only reason I got it was to check out the models too. I don`t think I`m ever gonna buy
      a ESP ever due to their insane prices.

      Dude, pictures of the ESP custom shop would be a huge hit on this forum. You should definitely take some pics of the japan exclusive guitars and post them.

      Awesome, thanks for the lowdown on the Japanese scene and for the tips on SSORC and Deadly Spawn, great bands! The scene in Tokyo sounds interesting. Have you had a chance to see Deadly Spawn or Ibaalism?
      I asked about the guitars because I covet the Japanese made ESP's, e.g. the horizon shape, the arrow, etc. These guitars are prohibitively expensive though! It's a dream of mine to check out the ESP custom shop in Tokyo.

      Thanks for the tip on Deadly Spawn. Would be interested in hearing about your impression of the metal scene in Japan, if any, other bands like Intestine Baalism, etc. Also interested in hearing about the relative cost of Japanese guitars given your salary over there.

      Best -James

      You won't be disappointed with the DA8 bridge model. Sounds incredible. Whatever you have in the neck you may want to keep, though. I have the neck/bridge set and there's something just slightly "off" about the tone I'm getting from the neck. Perhaps I can find a way to dial it out...? :shrug:
