Getting hold of an RG8470A in the UK

Anyone got any idea where I can get hold of an RG8470A in the UK? Anyone have any experience with J Custom dealers in the UK in general? Any recomendations?

Cheers

Probably not RG8470A because it is super rare. Ibanez produced about 26 of them only (5A Flame Maple Top).

You can't buy the 8470A in the UK I'm afraid and at the moment you can't order the 8470F either. Maybe later in the year ???? I can recommend Sounds Great and Merchant City Music as suppliers of the few J Customs that are left in the UK however !!!!

Yeah the RG8470F is still in current production, but you still need to pester the distributors, 'Headstock Distribution' (like I am but the more the merrier !!) as they haven't struck a deal to import any of the 2006 J Customs to the UK yet. Last year for instance, they only imported 5 of the RG8270 in Vintage Violin so you still have to be pretty quick !
