Re: Turning Japanese

Only two of the guitars you listed are actually made in japan,the rest are common korean/indonesian models.These models should be available easy enough,though different colours.
The "lower cost alternative to a JEM" you speak of is more expensive and actually ABOVE a jem! Thats a JC (japanese custom shop),the best that Ibanez offers!!!!! These are not available for sale outside of Japan offically through Ibanez dealers but can be found through guitar dealers on the net,see 'Ibanez rules' at the top of page for example.

Re: Turning Japanese

I think what Guitar Geek is saying, is which JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) models would folks like to see, rather than which MIJ models.

Re: Turning Japanese

J-Customs, for sure!

The lower model lines in the US, in my opinion, are in good shape. I saw the RG350R1 pop up on guitarcenters website, and that used to be a JDM only guitar; very cool.

Re: Turning Japanese

why not all of them! they are all very nice. I love that s470B, just wish it didnt have the mirror headstock logo, just doesnt go with the black logo. And ive always wanted the RG350QM in antique burst, i think it looks awesome!
