Where to get a model not available for your country?

Hello:

I'm interested in buying a PGM3 (made in Indonesia).

Don't try to convince me otherwise. I will not spend over a $1,000.00 US just to play alone in my bedroom. I just want a spare guitar. I already have an original PGM100, 1991, Fugi-Gen Japan.

The thing is that this model is not available in the USA. I do not have any friends or family members in another country that can get it for me and ship here.

I have read so many warnings about fake Ibanez and unscrupulous sellers that I am now paranoid. I have browsed several webpages and everywhere I find it are sites with all the red flags I should avoid. Do you know any way I can get it? Do you know any reputable sellers who carries that model and get it for me for a fair price?

Your help will be very appreciated.

Check eBay, if in doubt as to whether or not it's legit ask us here. We'll take a look at it and let you know.

You could always contact an authorized dealer in that country.

I can't understand a single letter on the site. But they posted the PGM3 which is the one I am looking for. Price is perfect, but the description they put in English about the guitar is from The PGM300 Reissue which costs the triple. So that confused me even more than the Korean letters all around.
