    The AX120 is much better than the AX70, as is the S370/470 or RG470/570. The AX70 is the taiwan built guitar. Any Ibanez with the GIO lettering on the neck would be to Ibanez as Squire is to Fender or Epiphone is to Gibson, it's not really an Ib...(more)

    Musician's friend is a great site, but I'm pretty sure they will not ship outside the US. You can also try www.marsmusic.com they also have Stardard Strats for $299 US.
