  • Overview

    Made in in 2016 as part of the Mapex Japan / Beyond Shimano collaboration. The 14"x5.5", all-American maple shell has a flamed maple exterior in triple-tone sunburst finish. The bearing edge is 45˚, the inside is coated in vintage oil, and the exterior is finished in nitrocellulose lacquer. 

    Update March 2023

    This turned up on eBay from Japanese seller dr_nine and it's nice to see it's still in mint condition after 7 years!

    今宵も考えてます。どなたが叩かれても心に残るサウンドと、美しさを追求したい。楽器はどこまでも楽器ですが愛着を超えて活きる糧までできれば素晴らしいし、幸せな職業である。金儲けはほど遠いけど。
