this might actually surprise you but a lot more Korean Ibanez models are avalible in the US than Korea. it goes for many other companies as well like epiphone and dearmond..etc..
It has something to do with the laws and contacts etc..
I'm in korea.. by the way..
anyways the only korean made ibanez guitars I've seen so far here are the knock off white Jems with teh floral in lay up to the 12th fret, and the basic rg models.. oh yeah and the PGM... that's it.. everything else is japan made.. hell they only ship it like 100 miles across...
so I'm actually wondering what is the big thing there on Korean made Ibanez guitars.. I personally don't like any guitar made in Korea unless if it's a Cort..
