    The name of the store is SUBWAY MUSIC it is owned and operated by FAT DOG the brand my Gibson copy was also FAT DOG. I noticed a 1950 epi but its an out of date list. I suggest a person call him if interested in his current stock of jazz guitars.

    I have met Hirofumi in Tokyo just before Covid-19 made travelling impossible. He is a nice guy and great player. You can hear that Barney Kessel is his hero. He also owns an Archtop Tribute ATC 350BK the custom model made by the Westville people. It is as close as one can get to the original Gibson. Great guitar.

    As far as I know King Snake is owned by Gretch.

    Hirofumi is one of the talented students of Yoshiaki Okayasu who sounds more like Kenny Burrell (they have played together). Yoshiaki is my favourite Japanese traditional guitarist but lesser known as he is not a social media guy and only speaks Japanese. He has recorded about twenty CDs, the latest one with only ballads.

    I agree. It's the old school Christian/Burrell type tones the Filtertrons have a problem reproducing. Understandably, as they are very mid-scooped pickups. TV Jones T90s would get you closer, and for the PAF thing the Rio Grande BBQ Tron set does the job. (I owned/own both)

    Wow, what a gifted player Yoshiaki is. Thanks for the referral!

    Here’s Yoshiaki playing a soft a tender ballad and another playing live with Hirofumi.

    The store is Subway Guitars owned by Fat Dog.The model I mentioned is called the Lowell model.But I think it might available in 2 pickup version. Just look under jazz guitars on his website at Subway Guitars. I think the japan made guitars are 2 or 3 thousand dollars,his are about 6oo.

    The name of the store is Subway Music in Berkley,Ca. Fat Dog is the owner. You can look online under Subway Guitars and then jazz guitars or better yet just call them.
