Re: Blue Tiger Pearl non-badged MIJ

So when we went to pick these up, I hadn't seen them yet and honestly figured I'd be looking at a red sparkly Raven or something like that. I had no idea they would be wrapped in such a beautiful...

Re: Help ID Yamaha kit

It is indeed. I couldn't believe it either. Gold pinstripe inlay sets it off nicely. When advertised, it was quoted as being in excellent condition. It is in far better shape than that

Yep, the wait game sucks. The longer the wait, the less likely for success.

Re: Mij "capri"

I've had this strange little 14" sitting around for quite a while and never knew what to make of it. My only guess is that it was made in the Carlton factory, hence the same badge. Funny that both...
