Cool My First J-Custom

I got my RG8670DR from Ishibashi on Tuesday morning. I have to say this is easily the nicest guitar I have ever played. My pics do not do it justice.

Re: My First J-Custom

Nice!! If you found that in the Ishibashi U-Box that was the exact one that was put on hold for me as I was going to pickup but ended up passing on it. Went and got an RG8670VV instead.

Congrats on the guitar and I hope you love it to death. (Welcome to the J-Custom Club )

If so thanks for passing on it, it's amazing and completely unbeatable at the price.

I'm keeping my eye out for a TB or DX now

Yeah, what's sick is the 'flat' looking leaves and dots in the pic are actually mirror. It looks 10x better in person. I think I just sat and stared at it for a few minutes when I opened the case

~$1300 including import duty. Or I should say it should be ~$1300, Ishibashi put a hold on my credit card for the purchase price, but never applied the actual charge and the hold has expired. So I've actually only paid the $100.66 import fee to date...

I need to call my card company and make sure the charge wasn't declined because of automatic fraud detection... they can get a little weird about international charges. test

You and me too man. I still need a TB and a DX for my collection, but I might pass on an RG8670tb since I already have my neck thru JCRG-2 in TB. I got my Trans Violet and now I'll be getting one in Vintage Violin, only one or two more to build a wicked collection of RG8670s.

Speaking of Inlay, there are two types of Vine inlays on the JC's. Yours must actually be one of the older RG8670's where the flat leaves are actually mirror. They ended up changing the mirror with abalone some time later. I'll post pics of the difference when I recieve my RG8670VV, 'cause the VV one has the Abalone leaves and my TV one has the mirror. (I actually like the one with the mirror as it blends in so well with the trans violet and it gives the inlay some depth).

Cheers,

Budd

I'll be happy to land either one to have as a backup in case I start play out again (getting back into playing after 10 years). I was looking at a mint TV but it was gonna be over $2k by the time it was imported so I had to pass on it (was still thinking about it when the DR showed up on Ishibashi, actually). If you see a TB somewhere and decide to pass on it let me know

I didn't know they changed the inlays... I'll look forward to the pics. I definitely agree that the depth the mirror adds is awesome.

Did you get the VV that was on Ishibashi? I almost grabbed it but decided to hold out. Now I'm debating between looking for another 8670 or a JPM90 (after that I think I'm tapped out on guitars for the year).
