The only way to get one to norway is to order one straight from japan.
Go to http://www.ikebe-gakki.com/

They have both used and new IA signature guitars. Not to expensive either. You could get a used limited Apple horn for only 148000 yen (I think it was something like that). CHeck it out!

I went to mattias freak guitar camp in sweden over the summer and my UV777BK was lost in shipping so Mattias wen thome and got a guitar for hiself and i played his number one untill my guitar showed up. Heres what i though about it.


string tension seemed a bit odd, felt like playing springs, not too loose not too tight very odd.

the neck was not thin more likek a stra thickness with a more square profile in back.

could not get the trem to go out of tune and workmanship was totally flawless, amazing work.

Mattias like shis action hihg so i can tcomment on that really.

over all, i can honestly say that i wopuld never in a million years buy that guitar for myself. totally not what i expected. But int might be exactly what you are looking for. i can only tell you what i thought of it.
