How much do these go for (in US dollars)? I definetly know its a lot bcuz its a J-Custom and probly over 2 grand, what the exact price is what I'm curious about. And also, I wanna see some real pics of it, if anyone owns one, post it up for me or PM or email them to me, I would love to see it. Both colors are gorgeous! :)

I didn't think you could buy new J-Customs in the U.S.?

Ikebe-Gakki in Japan sells them for 192000 Yen which works out at around $1720 U.S. before shipping.

I don't think anyone here actually owns a RG8127. If you're looking for J.Custom 7 strings, if you know where to shop you can find some pretty good finds in the Japanese used market. I stumbled on a used RG7CSD-1 and a JCRG-7 while I was killing some time at work(just wish I remembered where I seen them!!)

Do you know of any good Japanese sites where these used guitars appear for sale that you would care to share?;)

News flash. Finding a guitar and buying it are 2 different things. Very VERY few stores actually have an export license [needed for a retail operation to ship outside the country] and I've never met a single private seller that would either. On top of that there's a slight language barrier and the online translators are a joke.

JTM45, I know you pointed it out; I was just giving him a tangible link, that's all. ;p And Rich, I don't know about Ikebe Gakki, but a lot of people got j.customs from Ishibashi (I'm sure you know that already), so it wouldn't be impossible for Ikebe Gakki to be able to export from Japan.

thank you! well, being a major guitar buff (especially 7-strings), and technology buff and all... me and a couple of my band members wanted to take a trip to Japan haha, and me and my other guitarist were gonna go Ibanez hunting lol. Before someone mentioned it being around 1700 US dollars, less than I thought, and I hope to buy one someday, or at least a j-custom, those are my dream guitars :)
