An Ibanez SR655 in the natural raw finish. All you can get is the so called “Antique” finish which I don’t like at all. It looks cheap and nasty.

Okay, thanks for that thread, now I know what to take with me before I move there!
As far as cool things which are hard to get go, I thought that it was like that in my native Russia because of sanctions, but no, it actually exists in other countries.

Most of the hard to get things are stuff that falls into the cracks. Manufacturers insist something not be sold cross border to here and then don’t quite set up the local distribution they were intending to protect.

With the RBA about to attack the Aussie dollar, everything from overseas is going to get a lot more expensive. I miss 2012.
