2015.5.21: I finally got the limited edition model with case that I've been longing for.
I already have two LA-85kk, but both of them are getting too delicate to keep as individual pieces and I decided to replace them with this one since the one I modified at the event was too delicate to use.
I could say the same thing about 85, but it is still hard to get low lol.
However, it's easy to use it without phasing in halftone.
The Schaller bridge also allows for stable arming play.
The frets are quite low and I would have been happy if there was a little more left, I thought after the maintenance.
There was no cushion between the locking pin and the body, so I bought one later and put it on.
2016.11: I sold it because I own more guitars and I don't think I can afford to repair the frets.
Late lot 491/600
It is hard to get lows, but it has a very glaring and nice character. It is quite noisy with only minimal grounding and no conductive paint or other noise countermeasures.
