Hey there FB. I like the Kabuto, however I just picked up a Musashi Oak and I'm afraid the Kabuto might sit in a case for awhile. I found the Kabuto on eBay (not new, but new condition) for much less than retail price. I've seen new ones on eBay for 50% of retail. They have made a couple of minor changes to the drum. Looking at stock photos they now have nylon tuning rod washers and a centered badge.
I put Reverse Power Center / Hazy 300 heads on it as well as Puresound Custom 20 strand wires. It does sound good.
