I recently looked into the RG770DX reissues, but after the Australian distributor told me they would be retailing for $3000AUD (about $2920USD) I quickly lost interest.
They retail for $1733USD, which works out to be about $1800AUD. I understand that prices in the US would be a bit cheaper because of the volume of guitars sold, and importing and customs fees vary, but a $1200 difference is just ridiculous.
So, i'm asking if someone from Ibanez can have a look at their Australian pricing, and please take into account the current value of the Australian dollar.
This has probably come off as a huge whine, and if so, I can live with that, I just want to be able to buy an Ibanez guitar locally without paying a huge markup.
