    I don't remember what people in taiwan speak( i presume chinese), but I can't read it and the windows translator stinks. Anyway can some one get the one guys contact info for me so i can email him about a guitar he has for sale? The guys username on the forum is "guitar shop". He is the one with the pics posted of the Fender strat with star inlays.

    Google Translate

    All help is appreciated ahead of time. Its one of the few guitars I have wanted for soooooo long......going on 15 years about now.

    The guy's contact info is unavailable to non-members so you'd have to sign up on their forum.

    The price is 40,000 NT which is roughly $1,262 USD.

    Guy listed his phone number and sounds like he's only doing local transactions.

    Sorry dude.

    Would you be able to pm me his phone number? I have been after a Sambora strat for so long as he is my idol and favorite guitarist.

    thanks for the help!=)

    Yea I tried to sign up but it wont connect to the server.....Im thinking maybe due to china's block of most western computer servers? It just goes to a blank white page when you go to register.

    0955402832

    I can't remember what the country code is for Taiwan but it should be easily found via Google.

    Also, it's a cell phone number and I'm not entirely sure this guy can speak English.

    Good luck!
    It's Taiwan, not China so there shouldn't be any firewalls.

    This should be the number to dial:

    011.886.955402832

    Not sure why he listed a 0 in front of the 9.

    Also, not sure how international rates apply on Taiwanese cell phones but I'd be pretty pissed if I got an international call and got charged enormous rates. :lol

    Did you double check to makesure it's not a Sambora Paisley knock off? There's supposedly 200 floating around. The paisley pattern is almost spot on.

    If no luck there's always the Atlas Sambora version. lol

    They always list the 0 before the area, but when you call from the US you don't use it

    If only it were that simple. Unfortunately his signature model comes with a 25db boost which is outstanding. Plus I love the star inlays on the guitar neck. Its my fave fender model period! Any idea where I can find one?

    9 isn't the area code. All mobile numbers start with 09. It's the 02, 03, 04, etc that are the area codes.

    OP, sorry I didn't see your post earlier. My wife is Taiwanese and my spoken Chinese is passable, I would have offered to help you out.

    BTW, for what's is worth, we speak mainly Manadarin and Taiwanese, with some Hakka and other aboriginal dialects scattered about, on this rock.
