Are the japanese Jackson guitars discontinued in Europe?
According to these guys, the Japanese plant is closing down. Not sure if it's due to a lack of power post-tsunami or if it's gone for good.
Anyone able to corroborate this or confirm this?
The rumor is that the Japanese Pro line is discontinued, which actually doesn't surprise me. I would bet on the Charvel ProMods returning (either from Chushin or another Japanes builder) at some point, though, since they've been successful.
If it's over, it's sad - that plant made some of the best guitars ever made in Japan.
