This is a very nice guitar owned by Zul. He bought this guitar in a guitar store in Ochanomizu, Tokyo Japan. Its a Japan Fender Stratocaster 1972 Reissue and where better to buy it than Japan itself?
The colour itself is reminisence of Yngwie's favourite "the duck" strat although without any scalloped fretboard. The cool thing about this guitar is that it is installed with USA pickups and not Japanese made pickups. Here are the specs :-
Body : Basswood
Neck: Maple Oval Type
Pickups: Standard Vintage USA
Control: 1 Volume - 2 Tone - 5way switch
This is really a cool guitar.

I just came back from Tokyo Japan for some seminar and i managed to go to Ochanomizu to have a look for myself the guitar wonderland of Asia. A guitar friend of mine told me about this place. Ochanomizu is located near Akihabara (electrical goods wonderland of Asia) and just a station away. I stayed at Ikebukuro and took the Yamanote line to Akihabara and then changed to Sobu line to go to Ochanomizu station.
Once out of the station you can find lots and lots of guitar shops big and small. You will be spoilt for choices. There are very wide range of guitars, amplifiers, effects and others that you just simply want to try all of them.
So anyone going to Tokyo Japan must go to Ochanomizu for guitar shopping!!

I did two project guitars on two different themes. The Ibanez is a project of mine trying to copy Richie Kotzen's Ibanez RK1 which he used during the 80s. All the guitar parts are from all over the world and assembled together. I did the graphics and then asked someone else to make a clear coat for it.
The other one is a Japan Fender Stratocaster which i only changed the neck of the guitar. Its a Fender Stratocaster 1962 Reissue and i made it to a reverse headstock. The neck is an original fender allparts replacement neck and i choose maple because it looks cool.

This is an Ibanez RG450 LTD Edition. Its a silver metallic one and it really looks stunning. Have a look!!
Body : Basswood
Neck : Maple, Wizard II
Fretboard : Rosewood
Fret : 24 Jumbo
Bridge : The Edge Pro
Pickup : H-S-H, IBZ V7 (Neck), IBZ S1 (Mid), IBZ V8 (Bridge)
I havent tried my hands on this guitar yet but i can see that it should be really a cool sounding guitar and the standard IBZ pickups should sound really nice just like most of the other RG series around using the same pickup. As for playability i read reviews that this guitar is really easy and comfortable to play with. Now i gotta ask Sai to let me try this guitar!!
