Unhappy So frustrated-J custom Availibility

Im really looking for a rg8670 or a 9570 somewhere in Britain, but, well as you've probably guessed i cant find any. Im not here to complain(well maybe a bit), but im so annoyed cos i love these guitars, but I need to try out an 8670 and 9570, before buying, but how the hell can i do that when nowhere even stocks them. Does anyone really know anywhere they can order specific J customs and whether there is a main distributor. Why doesnt Japan issue more to the UK its so stupid.

Re: So frustrated-J custom Availibility

all i can say is it's called a J(apan) custom for a reason

either have patience and look round for used ones(and new) or bite the bullet and import

Re: So frustrated-J custom Availibility

And you'd still save a pile over buying there, but, it's already been spoken for by somebody that spied this thread.

Re: So frustrated-J custom Availibility

Not only is it not an 8670 or a 9570, but it's a 0 feedback private seller. Yea, no worries there

Re: So frustrated-J custom Availibility

8570 = Rosewood fretboard and offset abalone dots
8670 = Ebony fretboard and TOL inlay

The 8570 neck is 1mm narrower and 1mm thicker. All other specs are identical.
Cosmetic differences aside the 8570 is 'as good' as the 8670. There's only a couple of NEW 8570's left in the UK as well and they'll be gone pretty soon I suspect. Don't forget (9570 included) these are all Ltd Edition J Custom guitars from the 2002 and 2003 catalogues !!! If the 2006 models aren't imported to the UK and the old models sell out, you'll either have to import from Japan or wait until next year and see what happens.
