Yup I paid right around $700 with tax from zzounds when they went on sale. I had to go through 3 (I think) until I finally got one that was decent but even the one I settled with still had a fair amount of cosmetic issues. It was a great guitar though and sounded great with the 57/66 combo . I had the original silver burst as well but there was just something about the black one I could not mesh with.genuinely one of the best signature models they've ever released and it's a pity it wasn't more popular
I still regret not picking one up, I recall seeing them being pushed on Reverb for like $650(?) towards the very end of their production cycle.
