Ibanez J Custom RG PT-FM

Came across these models whilst surfing some of the Japanese shops/sites

Model is JCRG PT-FM. Don't know too much about them tbh but they appear to be a production model, nothing really in the model name to suggest a special shop order either. I've seen them in a black finish too.

Spec: (Courtesy of google translate)

"RG" series get a high reputation abroad in recent years.
This unit is located in the grade of the highest among them of "j-Custom" series, the wood material of the three-piece neck Maple top / Basswood back body, maple / Uenji / maple, in a high position with bolt heel that can be cut smooth fingering has been applied will reduce the stress.
The bridge has combines a high performance and sound of tremolo bridge with the Edge, also corresponding to the arming violent.
This can be used without stress also play a technical, and involvement in a combat ready Ibanez that can be felt!
[SPEC]
BODY: Maple Top / Basswood Back
NECK: Maple / Wenge
FINGERBOARD: Maple
PU: LH-62P / N, LH-62P / B
w / Original Hardcase, Certification

Re: Ibanez J Custom RG PT-FM

I love it! I really really like that...sooooo nice... I do prefer maple necks so that is a J custom that I could definitely see myself getting into...but I'm willing to bet that the chances of getting one of these to western Canada is slim...maybe Rich will get one in...

Yep, the maple board is really cool, very few J Customs with those. Problem is these models will just be too hard to get out of Japan.

Maple boards and transparent finishes rule. I am thinking I need a J Custom.
