Re: Ibanez and maple fingerboards

As an example of the exact same model

RG2228GK

2008
RG2228GK List Price - $2133.32
SMAP - $1599.99

2012
RG2228GK List Price - $2799.99
SMAP - $2099.99

But everything is going up, regular shipping to canada was $3 last month, is now $6.

My health insurance was $4700 in 2008 and was $7300 last year.

Hoshino as a company has the same increases in their business that all get passed along with higher pricing, before you even consider what the Yen has done.

2008 Yen - $1 = 108.78
2012 Yen - $1 = 85
