    Maybe post in the classifieds for more help?

    You can find them, if not in the USA, outside of the USA. Shouldn't be a problem to get shipped back to the USA since they were made here.

    I've seen them around at a few non USA dealers but like I said it shouldn't be a huge issue to get one shipped.

    I dont think any of them were r7s. I think they were all r8s or m2m.

    This one is an r7 according to the listing. They don't show the back of the neck though so...

    I just can't believe I missed this run... I was under a rock I guess lol

    Maybe I will see if Gibson will make me an R6 like this...

    Yeah that's the same color in the pic anyway, but that's a painted back version. I am looking for the natural back. The color name may help with the search though! Thanks!

    If you really want one, Wildwood would be the place to call. I'm sure they could get you one. Finding a used one in the USA might take a while.

    So there are no regular runs of the olive top natural back. Dealer says Gibson said they are all mtm made to measure and over $5k and 8 weeks min to order!

    So I finally heard back from the Japan shop. It's a no go to ship outside Japan because of the rosewood used.

    "Dear Ron Moore,

    Thank you very much for sending inquiry.
    According to the dealer Agreement with Gibson, we are not selling/shipping the all new and outlet Gibson guitars to outside Japan.
    Also unfortunately due to the rosewood material regulation, now we can not sell/ship the one that contains it to outside Japan.
    We are sorry not to meet your request this time.

    We hope your understanding.


    We (consultation window for overseas customers) will close Sat and Sun, so we will reply to inquiry that received weekend on next week.

    Your understanding will be appreciated.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Noriaki Sato

    You can consider asking third party service providers (buyee, fromjapan, jauce, zenmarket, & etc...) to help with the purchase.
