Whether it’s on purpose to keep the non-japanese out, or to protect themselves, I care not. I stopped caring about what the Japanese wanted the moment I saw they still harbor some sort of Xenophobic tendencies.
Happy Birthday, Sonic! Can’t wait to hear more about that new game 👍🏻 #sonic #sonicthehedgehog #sega #arcade #gamecenter #toilet #skate #xtreme #retrogaming #retrocollective #gaming #japan #LOVEOFTHEGAMER

Before the celebrations continue for Sonic the Hedgehog in California next week, we’ve got some awesome news for all of our musically-talented SEGA Nerds. To celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog‘s 25th anniversary, ESP Japan is releasing four limited edition guitars that feature Sonic and Shadow the Hedgehog.
The guitars are inspired by the models from Crush 40’s Jun Senoue and come in standard and high-end models.
“Built for speed, the ESP SN-25th Sonic The Hedgehog Guitar-II offers an alder body with bolt-on maple neck and ebony fingerboard, plus a Floyd Rose 1000 vibrato, and Seymour Duncan JB and SSL-4 pickups.”
The Sonic and Shadows guitars come with a gigbag, certificate, pick set, musical score, and polishing cloth. The higher-end models include Jescar frets, custom inlays, Gotoh tuners and headstocks that resemble their respective sneakers. The standard models will cost you ¥165,000 (£1,194/$1,581), while the more expensive models will set you back ¥645,000 (£4,664/£6,181).
