J.Customs now available in Australia

All you guys in oz who have been looking for J customs in here in Australia.
Music City in Sydney has 2 of them.. 1x RG8270TB and 1 x RG8270DR

So if you are in Sydney go and check em out.. No they are not second hand and are covered by Australias Ibanez Distributor warranty..

Re: J.Customs now available in Australia

unlucky australians actually.... chances are it'll be far cheaper to import including shipping, the guitars are here simply as temptation we either can't have or that will decimate our wallets lol

Re: J.Customs now available in Australia

landed cost on a j custom here in oz is about $3650 AUD ($2900 for the guitar + $150 for shipping + 10% gst +5% customs +$90 brokers fees

RRP on the J custom is $4495AUD so a street price of under $4000. I dont know about you guys but a guitar I can hold in my hands and send back for warranty is worth an extra couple of hundred bucks to me... especially when i am forking out that sort of money..

Re: J.Customs now available in Australia

Guess how much the RG1527 lists for here in Aussie? $1455 USD!!!!!!!!!!! When you sods in America get it for $1100 USD !
I just ordered my RG1527 in royal blue and luckily i managed to get $291 USD off to make it $1161 USD. Hey any of you guys in Australia want really cheap stuff check out Pro Audio in Canberra, the discounts are insane. Hey Ki swordsman! its good to see some more people for tassie.

lol i don't know where the hell you got those prices from but i just checked ishibashi prices on current Jcustoms and the most expensive one- 200,000Yen works out to $2301AU, then add your shipping and 15% import (you don't need to use a customs broker)
would save a hell of a lot to import and i'm sure you could shop around for better prices anyway..

to clarify- that could work out to around $2800AU total. far sight short of $3650 let alone under $4000
saving of $1200? hell yeah i'd import on a quality controlled electric like that

heya shredder! i've never seen another tassie dude on jemsite except ppl i know are you from Hobart?

It is like a little lesson in world economics!!! LOL!

Overall the most important thing is you get the guitar(s) you want and are confident and satisfied!
