How much are J Customs?

I'm currently saving towards a Jem but I would really love a J Custom. How much would it cost to import one to the US?

Re: How much are J Customs?

Could have sworn i replied to this thread earlier...

The price difference between the two wouldn't be huge, but the difficulty would increase for sure, with a JC.

That being said, IMO, you get a far better value in a JC than in a Jem.

Re: How much are J Customs?

Ouch. If it was the the same or a little more than the Jem I would have gone for it, but thats out of my league. Its a shame, thats the most beatiful guitar I've ever seen.

Wait, I noticed that the list price on the japanese Ibanez site is lower for the J custom than the Jem. Also, that ibanez rules has higher than usual prices. Is there anywhere that sells them at the normal price?

Re: How much are J Customs?

The Jem is 273,000 yen and the J custom is 262,000. I meant no offense with the price comment. I know you put greater imprtance on service, but I simply can't afford the J custom in your store. If I could buy it from you I would.
