The second one looks pretty much exactly the same as the "regular" line J-Custom.

I'm not a fan of redundant black either but, I do have to say "Kuro" translates to black and "Sawa" to swamp. So maybe they chose black to fit witht he shops name.

If that first one has an ebony fret board (which I'm not assuming to be true) then I'm interested.

Re: New Kurosawa J Custom MRG-8 and MRG-9

I heard about these when they were going to build them. I actually prefer last years models in the Raspberry finish over these ones. The only thing that really makes these models different from the standard J Custom line is that these are chambered to make them nice and lightweight. Other than that they're pretty boring. If it came with gold hardware it might have been remotely interesting.

the pink and blue should be familiar to most of you, but this Hesonite Garnet color is something for a change.

I feel for you all. You guys have to go through so much trouble to get a J-custom. I see them everytime I go to ishibashi. Which is serious 5 minustes from where I live. But, I can't even afford one so it's no use.

Re: New Kurosawa J Custom MRG-8 and MRG-9

My favourite store custom so far this year is still the RRG6.Love the colour (Lemon drop yellow),the black headstock binding,no binding on the neck and sweet inlay logo! Super dark fret board sure makes the JC vine pop! Only 6 made for Rock inn.

Wow, the yellow is a killer ! The Hesonite Garnet is nice too, would go nicely with my 3 JC's !! I think Ibanez need to check out some of the colours Suhr do !! Quilt tops and 'burst finishes would be nice too. Pleeeeze !!!
