The US gets this,

http://www.ibanez.com/eg/guitar.aspx?m=S670PB

and the Uk get... what?

I guess, the S470B looks pretty sweet. But really, why does Ibanez insist on giving the UK the finger on choice of guitars?

And the fixed bridge RGs... "oh i know, we'll make them all black for the Uk, and give the US some green ones and an awesome lavender one."

Well, you could get and US-only Ibanez that you want shipped over to you from the US, if you really want it. I know that adds a lot of price...but what can you do, right?
Oh no he just divided by zero again...*gets sucked into vortex*

...we kicked Britain's ass in TWO wars - and we saved their asses in not one, but TWO world wars...

... world superiority comes into play, as well... a more dominant market, too...


... we also had the foresight to bomb the crap out of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, so we own the Japanese, basically. They HAVE to give us the best of what they got!

Lol! I KNEW I'd draw some comments for THAT!

Britain was the world's bully, and we were one of the first (if not the first) to stick it to them. Ever since then, the influence of the british is next to nothing, while America is the world's only real super power.

YOU figure it out, buddy...

Seriously, from a business stand-point, it seems like a good move to provide the options to us americans - we probably buy more crap than britain, so it would make sense to send your product where you'd get more volume of sales.

Actually, China holds the biggest influence. China holds the majority of US investments. If China withdraws all those, the US will collapse.
And, it really doesn't matter who holds more authority, cause the Brits still founded the American colonies, which is what America became.

Oh, and UK is the bully? *cough*Iraq*cough*

If I had MY way, we'd be bombing Iran, too - Syria, Jordan, the whole middle east.

Does it matter? They come from England. (Well, they were descendants of people who came from England).

We had the largest empire the world has ever known and owned 4/5 of the world's surface.

Yeah, but my point is that North America still would've been settled with or without the British.

No one gives a shit, faggots.

The Americans are fat, and stupid, and all Brits are posers and chavs. End of discussion.

On topic, you could just import a guitar if it bothers you that much.

Don't troll the troll. If he thinks his country is better because of it's weapons and military, let him, we'll all know he's a retard and nobody has to rage.

My country IS better - it is recognized around the world as the free-est, most profitable country with the best military and the biggest GDP. It is a FACT. It's not what I think - it's what everyone across the world ALREADY KNOWS.
#29
wtf

this is like xbox live....only on a forum

nice guitar btw. it's kind of like how Japan can get all of those beautiful Ibanez's the rest of the world can't (j-customs for instance) or how Edwards have to be imported into the US but not sold directly in the country.

It is a fact that your country is better? No, it is your opinion you ignorant ****. There are people in other countries who are proud to be from where they are, and you can't acknowledge that. What a pity.

I, sir, have my tri-cornered hat and powdered wig at the ready!

As for "better?"

I've done my share of living abroad. Some countries are "freer" in certain ways than we are. Some are prettier in some ways. Having a big army and GDP? Meh. That's not "better" just "is."

There are definitely things I miss about my time abroad...like REAL beer at McDonalds!

But, on the whole, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else for very long...too much I love about the ol' USA.

What has this world come to, where a simple guitar rant turns into a flaming argument of patriotic "mine is bigger than yours"?

Although the red S470 looks rather cool, that burled poplar top does look tasty. Oh, and this lack of variety doesn't apply to the UK alone. There are other European countries suffering here, you know...
