JCustom......

I know that it will probably never happen but I wish there was atleast one dealer in the states that could sell JCustoms.....and stock the Prestiges that are offered to the japanees market but not in the states.

And your point is...?

Unless you count the occasional J-Custom models that are designed for release in the US, it's not going to happen. You'll just have to settle for Ishibashi.

Which has NOTHING to do with somebody wanting a J-Custom dealer in the US.

I think the cheapest way is, buy from ishibashi. OK the delivering time is quite long but, for ~1750 bucks you get a rg8670. It would be much expensive to run a "J custom shop" in USA. Also , Hoshino wouldnīt allow this.

First of all, there could NEVER be a J-Custom shop in the US- the "J" in J-Custom stands for "JAPAN". A shop in the US would then be called a "USA Custom Shop" which has already been made available to the public before. The expense of having such a custom shop making guitars for public consumption was simply not cost-effective, which would be why the output of said shop is now for endorsing artists only.

This has been discussed over and over and over again...use the Forum "Search" function if you have any further question.
