jems in japan

i wasnt' aware that the market for japan was THAT different than america. I wasnt aware that they still had the 7bsb, and florals. And, I noticed they dont have a 7v sparkle blue there. I thought the sigs would be pretty much the same.

It's actually not that different (as far as Jems go). The sparkle Jem has been available for quite some time now. It's just not on the Jem page. I believe you can access the VSBL page from the top page. Althought the floral is still available, the BSB is no longer in production.

It is not just Japan but most of asia where can get new FP. Ibanez retailer in Hong Kong has VSBL in stock for a little while now. Can get new FP and I think they still have 2 BSB left in stock.

The word I got was the Florals were done too, no more production. I'm sure alot of distributors put in heavy orders when they anounced they were discontinuing, that's what I'd do for sure.

I kinda liked the look of the bsb. I guess they just need to update. I'm glad the florals are/were still around, though i probablt get one .

At the top of the BSB page, it says "This model is no longer in production" in Japanese. I think it's there just as a reference.

I think they still have some for sale, that just translates "They're discontinued, hurry up and get them while they last!!" ;o}

Let me rephrase, the actual translation is:
"This model has been discontinued and is no longer available."

Sorry there. Should have added that bit at the end!
But you're probably right about them having a few left. That would explain why they still have the BSB page!!!
