Finding J Customs - hard to find models

I've heard it mentioned that certain models can be found only in certain factories. *I've seen the Ishibashi site and am aware of it, but I've heard of Roland-Meingl in Germany as well. *I've found information on them, but no website or which Ibanez models they carry. *Can someone throw me a line here?? *thanks

Finding J Customs

Here's a link to the Musik Produktiv site.
It's in German, but if you're smarter than a staff writer for Harmony Central, you shouldn't have problems figuring it out.

There are a few J-Customs over there, but nothing compared to Japan and the Pacific Rim.

If you run across an RG-EGYPT, let me know. *:biggrin:

Finding J Customs

Swirl, its not that some are only avaiable in certain factories....all are made in Japan, but some are made in such low numbers(like only 4 or 5 of a specific model), and a certain distriubutor might just buy all 4 or 5 of them. Most common ones are made in a batch of 24(i.e RG-Art, RG-Gear, S3040's) but some are/were made in lower #'s. I've never heard of or seen a web site for Roland-Meinl. I do know of a well known German store that you might be able to contact and try to get some info:
According to their web site today, they still have a RG7-CST in stock.
(o.k., well Kev was posting apparently the same time i was!! I keep trying to tell Kev, there is only 1 RG-Egypt, but he doesnt want to believe me!! When the Certificate says one of a kind, its one of a kind!!)

If anyone can read Japanese, I'd appreciate a rundown of what it says for the JCRG7-1 (which previously I didn't know came in finishes other than VV).

Finding J Customs

I contacted Musik Produktiv about the CST some time ago. They said they don't ship to the USA, which wasn't too be a problem for me since I have a number of contacts in Europe I could have it sent through.

After pursuing it further, they informed me they don't actually have one in stock, but thought they would be getting more in about two months from when I was speaking with them, which was was early Jan.
