J-custom JCRG13BEM - any experience/info?

Anyone with experience/ownership of this beauty? It's not a guitar listed in the EU catalogue and there generally seems to be very little info about it.

What I'm interested to know is some history on the guitar. Is it actually a ltd edition model and how many have been manufactured? It uses a fairly unique pup selection so how does it sound in comparison to other mahogany j-customs or even JEM's?

Thanks.

Lovely looking axe. I personally couldn't part with J-Custom level cash for that particular model because of the gloss finish on the neck, the square heel joint, and the edge zero bridge. Has to be all access neck joint, velvetouch and original edge or lo pro for me.

I own a JCS20146-SPF and an RG8570SP-NT and I love them both! They feature the specs I describe, sound and feel great. I don't have pictures of them on this PC to share, but I have links of me playing both of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgaEpH9es-c

First video is a mic'd amp, the second is a computer generated tone.
