Obon is upon us, so put on your yukata and get ready to dance! Our shipping departments in Japan and Canada are taking a break to pay their respects to their ancestors, spend time with the family members who remain, and dance the Bon Odori. For this reason, Japarts will be on holidays from August 11th to the 15th and will start to ship orders again on the 16th. Arigatou gozaimasu!

Left: SGL510Z (21:1) Right: SGS510Z (mini 18:1). Fit exactly the same for L3+R3. Mini tuners are required for 6-in-line headstocks but some prefer them for acoustic guitars, too.

Extra details... Left side is GG (gold) with BL5 black acrylic Contour buttons. Right side is CK (cosmo black) with HS5 faux horn Contour mini buttons.

Uo-Chikyu nut files (0.067" and below) are switching to stainless steel over the next year or so. We currently have some 0.011, 0.013, and 0.032" files in stock.

Functionally they are the same, but the new stainless steel files are much more flexible. And, of course, rust resistant.

Much like the previous switch in design we have no control over which files we receive when we order them and we will replace old stock with new only when it has sold out.

Canada Post is getting locked out soon, so for Canadian orders we will ship by UPS. Orders to the USA from Canada will be shipped by DHL. Orders shipped from Japan to non-Canadian destinations will not be affected. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to send us an email at info@japarts.ca

There have been golden eras for acoustic guitars and electric guitars. At those times the tuning machines generally had great tonal qualities but less than stellar functionality. Gotoh are known for the exceptional quality of their 510 series tuning machines, so we asked them create a special series of tuners with brass string posts to put some of that vintage essence back in with the smooth action of the modern machine.

It's a new golden age. Now you can have the vintage tonal quality of brass string posts without having to sacrifice functional quality!
