I heard that Bridgestone came out with a JDM driver that was a smaller head design than the US released one....anyone know where I can order one?  Also, I would like to be able to order it without the Fubiki, or maybe head only....

It's the B5.  I ordered mine through Rakuten.  You can find a lot of shaft options.  What was going to cost me $675 on tourspec, I got for just over $500 on Rakuten.

I'm really liking this driver, the more I use it the more it grows on me. Feel is great, comparable with the i15 which I loved, but a little more sound to it. Nothing too loud but a nice little ting. Def a lower launching head. I'm probably gonna change shafts to get my launch up a little bit. Beautiful head to look down at and I think it's pretty forgiving.

I'd prob say custom if it truly is matte. All that I've seen are gloss.

I currently play a j715 B5 and love it!  One of the sleekest, best looking drivers I've played.  Had my local club fitter put a little hot melt in it and the sound is incredible.  Impressed with Bridgestone's quality of product and how it stands the test of time.  Also have a set of j015 cb's that I am alternating between some mp 15's.  Once again, very impressed with the quality.  Not quite as ghost like on feel like mizuno, but I find you can feel the ball on the club face a little more with the j015's.  Just thought I would share my experience for anyone looking for info.

Thanks!
