There are more "Important Notes" at the end but these are here, at the beginning for a reason:
1) We ship WORLDWIDE by Express Mail Service average time to the USA is about 3-4 days. 2) We no longer ship to South America or Africa. If you would like us to make an exception please contact us first! 3) We currently ship within 5 business days of completed payment. 
4) Our shipping fees (and free shipping if it is offered) are worldwide. Unless you live in a tiny or war torn country you do not need to ask us the shipping rate. It is the same as everywhere else. 5) If you do not see DOZENS of hi resolution pictures followed by the "Important Notes" try another full feature browser!! Not mobile!! Not Firefox!  6) When you place a bid or use the Buy it Now. You are agreeing to the terms set forth in the listing so please be sure to read them all and look at all the pictures!!!!  7) eBay does NOT have an "I changed my mind" option.  All non-paying bidders and bid cancellers will be reported to eBay and added to our blocked bidder list.
Here is one of the coolest metal guitars I have ever come across. This is a 33 fret custom ordered guitar made by Combat, perhaps the best boutique builder of metal guitars in Japan, if not the world. This things is super sweet and almost like new. It looks to be all it sounds amazing. About 43.5mm at the nut and the scale is 25.5 inch. Absolutely killer player....this was headed for my personal stash but seeing as I don't play much these days I at least owed it to the business to offer it for sale. it is. Oh yeah, it comes in its original hybrid soft/hard gig case/bag thing...very cool. Color is a super dark purple.
Condition is fantastic. I would call it 98% of dead mint. Just the lightest signs it has been played or handled.  See pics.60 or so hi-def pics below so please give them time to load and look at them!! Lots of info there. Even the weight. Will be super well packed to survive just about anything.  Don't trust anyone else to get something like this to you safely... For the record, we have shipped over 5000 guitars internationally. No one does it better. You might get a better price from an amateur desperate for cash...but will your guitar make it alive?
See our feedback and buy with confidence. You MUST MUST MUST read all fine print and Q&A below the pictures!! I can NOT stress this enough!!!PAYMENT, INSURANCE and CUSTOMS info and terms!! We include a great many pictures in our listings so the buyer can see EXACTLY what they are getting. Our guitars are as described so please look carefully at the pictures. Often something that looks like a flaw is dust or a reflection. Also keep in mind that close up pictures can make a tiny flaw look much worse and even completely normal things look strange. When was the last time you stared at a guitar from 3 inches away?  All used guitars will look worse with close up pictures. Our new guitars are indeed new so if you see something strange it is almost certainly not really there. If you have questions ask. These guitars pretty much always look MUCH better in real life!!! We recommend hitting the F11 button before viewing the pictures for full resolution. IMPORTANT NOTES
SHIPPING: Shipping cost is $130 to just about anywhere by EMS JapanPost(if you are in South America or Africa please contact for a qoute as rates are more expensive).KEEP IN MIND, while your cost is $130.... our ACTUAL COST is usually much more!!! EMS is the only method we use. 

You don't need to worry about shipping from Japan!!!  See our feedbacks!! Often, to the USA, they are door to door in 72 hours!   We firmly believe that EMS JapanPost is much safer and faster than UPS or FedEx.  Less time in transit means less chance of damage!  If your guitar comes with a gigbag do NOT worry as we have NEVER had shipping damage on a guitar that was not in case nad we have shippd thousands!! Case-less guitars might actually be safer than a guitar in a case because there is more room for padding and the added mass of a case often does more damage than it prevents!! We take packing very seriously and I estimate chances of loss or serious damage at less than 1 in 1000.Tracking information will be sent by ebay messages within 12 hours of shipping. We ship at least 2 days a week, usually Tuesday and Friday.

CUSTOMS FEES: Some countries have import duties. We are not responsible for these and generally do not know specifics for your country.  There are usually no customs fees on our items entering the USA (fully insured through EMS JapanPost). Sometimes there are, but usually there is not. If you do get charged it is your responsibility, not ours. We have no control over customs!!! Customs fees are usually based on the insured/declared value for the package. The item is fully insured.........unless for some reason you do not want it to be, then let us know.
 Return Policy: You can return a guitar for any reason within 72 hours of delivery (3 business days). There is a 10% fee on returns so your refund will be 90% of the purchase price. No exceptions. No refunds on shipping costs. Returns must be by airmail and guitar must be in the same condition as it was in when it left us.

Payment: Generally, we will accept all paypal payments  but we do reserve the right to refund any paypal payment for any reason. Contact to discuss other methods.
