Guitars – Japan Style

While in Japan there was one thing I really wanted to do but was not sure if it would be possible. See some cool custom Japanese Guitars. My mate Les has been building his own guitars for a few years now and has just about gotten me into the craze… there are some awesome builds out there in net land if you want to look them up.

While in Shinyuku we passed a cool looking Guitar shop and I had to duck in to see what was what and here is what I found.

Below is a selection of the custom guitars the place made or will make – which is pretty much anything you can think of.

What that you say a 7-string guitar is “bassee” enough for you. Nah I what an 8-string Guitar… DSCN0277

Further proof it really has 8-strings!


Needless to say this store had some of the best examples of custom Guitars I have seen.
