The 8320 is in stock now at Merchant City Music in Glasgow (excellent service), I'm still waiting to find out about any others though.

Re: RG8320 is available in the UK !!!!

WOW! That is over double what i would expect to pay here. With the current exchange rate a j-custom would work out at under 1000 pounds here. I'm gonna pay around 198,000 yen (849.92 pounds)for my RG8427F, and the 8320 is likely to be less than that.

No way i am coming back to the UK. Couldn't afford to buy a halfway decent guitar.

Jcustoms have been available in the UK through a select number of dealers since 2004.

Here's the page Headstock had when they started doing it 3 years ago.

http://www.headstockdistribution.com/custom/index.php
http://www.headstockdistribution.com...stom_Flyer.pdf

My local store* has had a 8570 NT in stock for good 18 months going for £1100.

I know they have, I've got two of 'em ! The Headstock page was created in 2004/5 and didn't even include the RG8270 which was imported in small numbers.The rumour from Headstock last year was that they weren't importing any of the 2006 models that's all.

That's how it is in all of Europe.

Re: RG8320 is available in the UK !!!!

Didn't know that as my local shop has always had 1-2 in stock and the 8570 has been there for quite some time now.

They also have one of these in stock which is strange as it shouldn't be available in the UK.
It's been there for 3-4 months going for £599

When I asked them about it the chap said that Headstock are importing small numbers of US available guitars to test the waters.
