Ibanez custom shop in Japan....

Have any of you seen this site...
http://www.ishibashi-music.com/

Cool custom Ibanez only available, to my knowledge in Japan.

How much is 83,000 yen anyhow?

Here's a currency convertor i use.

Ishibashi isn't a "custom shop"... they're just a big retailer that sells Japan-only models to people around the world.

Hey, they have BSB finishes in a regular RG. They also have an RG with a double stripe bubinga (?spelling?) neck.

I have bookmarked this one. The prices seem OK. Thanks for the conversion link.

Re: Ibanez custom shop in Japan....

Christ! 7 years old! I thought the Swirled Straps thread was pushing it, but this one wins by far! LOL.

But yeah, Ishibahi is awesome. They have stupid prices on J Custom's in the U-Box occasionally. I was trying to buy an ESP Kamikaze from there a while back. I could have bought it and sold it here, easily doubling my money. Unfortunately it was gone already, that's the only problem, they don't update often enough.

Re: Ibanez custom shop in Japan....

Actually, this very old thread reminds me of something...how much does it cost to ship to the U.S. from Japan, on average?

Does that include import fees and things like that, or is that just the shipping rate?

I'm not sure. I never payed any import fees for my j custom. They might have been included or maybe I just got lucky and customs decided not to charge me.
