Hey guys,

I came across this guitar in one of my local guitar shops, i'd never seen it before and it was pretty damn expensive ($3500! @_@) anyhoo, it's the signature model for some Japanese artist called "Ace" (from a band interestingly called "Face to the Ace") and i was kinda drawn to it because it looks pretty different to most other guitars i usually see.

Chances are i'd be hard pressed to get one for cheaper when i'm living back in the UK so i thought it might be nice to consider picking it up in the future and bringing it back with me.

I haven't played it yet, the owner of the store i went to is pretty annoying and assumes that you're gong to by anything you try, so i definitely don't wanna get his hopes up with the most expensive guitar in the store (just yet hehe).

Anyhoo here are the specs, lemme know what you think!









“SUSANOH” Transparent Red with Black Line The original body shape is designed by Ace,
whom is a Japanese leading guitarist.
Ace named it after Japanese old god "SUSANOH" by the image of the shape.

The structures of the body and neck are based on Angelus-ACE,
and mounted the original control invented by Ace,
which is the professional control pattern to manipulate 3 humbucking pickups.
