    Hey people.. I've zeroed in on which guitar I've to buy, so you guys dont need to help me on that.. Its an Ibanez RGR-321-EX. I have a relative who lives in Indonesia who can get it for me here. Since I heard that Ibanez has a manufacturing facility in Indonesia, I would like to know whether its a feasible option to get it from there itself? (In terms of quality, price difference etc.) Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    quality would pretty much be the same....the price difference being quite substantial in favour of Indonesia..........

    Thanks guys.. Then I think I'll be getting it from Indonesia itself. Will post pictures of it as soon as I get it.

    @metalmickey - No.. It would seem that way, but no. I've been a regular reader of IGT till now. Have been too lazy to sign up/post. But now that has changed.

    And by the way, are there any precautions to be taken in transit from Indonesia. As in, the flight procedures/other details. Coz my uncle over there pretty much doesnt know anything about guitars, except that they produce horrible metal sounds!!

    He's going to bring it himself, personally.. He's not shipping it. So what would be the list of do's and dont's to follow??
