Used or Cheap Guitars in Tokyo?

Greetings!

I'll be in Tokyo for the month of May and I'm looking to get a cheap strat style (or possibly telecaster) guitar to keep at the in-laws. All I'm looking for is a Fender Squire sort of thing, nothing vintage or boutique.

I do enjoy, however, perusing older used guitars as well, as sometimes you can find a diamond in the rough for a good price.

Can anyone recommend a store like this in the Tokyo area?

I may just bring one over on the plane, but that's kind of a pain (and expense) these days and I thought it might be more fun to do a bit of shopping.

I'll be training a bit at Hombu too, as time and (many) family obligations allow.

;)

Yoroshiku,

-Kent

I know there is (or was) a very large instrument store near Shibuya station but as for what they have and the prices I can't offer more info.

Around ochanomizu station there are tons of used/new guitar shops. I've heard that's where the best deals are and have been there several times. I think that's where you should go!

I seem to recall now hearing something similar a while back.

Thanks for the headz-up!
