What are the prices? I can't find then anywhere except in yen.
Okay, lemme put it to you this way:
When I bought my RG2550 (Last year in May): Cost was 130,000 yen (about 1300 USD). After price hike this year my rg2550 now costs around 145,000(1450 USD), and that doesnt even include the increase in consumption tax that started 5 days ago.
Genesis Collection RG550/570: 84000 yen (840 USD)
RG670 (Ash or mahogany body): 96000 (960 USD)
So if you buy a GC, you get a soft case (not a prestige hard case, but you do get the prestige tool set), the Ibanez V1/S1/V2 pups, and a Square heel neck joint prestige. For that difference in price, it's an amazing deal. Spend a little extra on aftermarket pups and you'll have everything you want. Even better if you like the V1/V2 pups, save even more money.
Problem is, DY and RFR are completely gone, cant find one anywhere. Best you'll find is Jewel Blue or a Violet Chameleon 570. I know of a place that has an Ash body 670 around though. Cant find the mahogany bodies anywhere.
