    Curious to see if anyone on here lives in Japan, speaks Japanese, and can purchase an item for me if I paypal them the cash. Let me know. I had a fellow member on here helping me out but things came up, and the shipping service I found wants about $300 more to get the item and the shipping would take quite some time where as I need this guitar for a benefit show i am playing in about a month and need to have the guitar in hand before the show so i can have it set up and such.

    thanks for any help in advance!

    sometimes you can go into online import stores (like amiami) and order some japanese toys and some little keychains from japan. (AmiAmi is in english and japanese.)

    if a site is ALL japanese, you can have google translate as you're 'friend' and translate tiny little phrases in the site to help you.

    Really something you just have to get from Japan and deal with a middleman and pay import prices and shipping on?

    If its just a guitar, there's plenty of options.

    Sorry to say that I can't.

    Now I don't have enough time to take responsibility for purchasing/shipping such a valuable item. (Also I'm kinda phobic of this kind of tasks since an American guy over a forum who made me purchase/ship him 4 boxes of Gentei Ligier Mirage ($240 total) suddenly disappeared without payment.) :( 


    I hope there's a right person who can do it. Best of luck to you.
