If you're looking at this ad then you know what this guitar is rarely will you ever see them come up for sale they are not available in the United States. You can buy them from Japan but after the cost of the guitar shipping and import fees you're going to be well over $3,000 and they come with a gig bag at that price not to hard shell case. I was able to play one of these about 10 years ago and absolutely fell in love with it and about 5 years ago I found this one in a music store in Eugene Oregon. The quality of these Japanese guitars rival Fenders Custom Shop guitars. The attention to detail is just incredible! One thing to mention right away if you like thin necks you will not like this guitar, along with the Kotzen Telecaster this guitar also has a very thick neck which adds to its amazing tone! The DiMarzio pickups have that beautiful Fender chime when played clean but when you turn the gain up a little bit to play Blues or High Gain they retain their Clarity and bite they are crystal clear. The Fret work is impeccable, rounded perfectly and the guitar is set up to play absolutely amazing! It comes with a deluxe tweed case. I also have a brand new set of Fender strap locks to go with it.
