They updated their facebook photo too. Hopefully they make it right with the people who didnt get thier guitars before taking new orders.

I saw that. Glad they appear to be back in business. I hope they make everything right with their customers.

It does look similar to the "ran" kanji used for the Akira Kurosawa film but either there are two of them (possible) or the handwritten brushstrokes make it look different.

I would like to believe it is from this (i know nothing about the language). All i know is if you looked at my writing of English letters a lot of ypu would scratch your and go 'wtf is that '. :2c:

This is the kanji: 乱

It looks to be the same as the Kurosawa movie, even if it's pretty heavy stylization. I have a ton of trouble just reading kanji not in my phone's font, but these sorts of things are everywhere.

Must be sad for a 30 or more years company this all ended like that, a joke about phonetics and kanjis. I hope they are not desperately broke, resumed their lives in some other way and every client got what they paid for or at least something worth it.
