    I was gonna say Winter NAMM at the start of the year, but that was a non-locking 550. Still a badass looking fiddle.

    Funnily enough, I was browsing eBay today and came across this little beauty:

    It's the RG460(vfm). Pretty tasty, and probably as close as I'll ever get to dry humping Chris's Penny RG.

    Saw that on the Sweetwater email this morning too

    Definitely cool looking, but I'd have to try the neck to make sure it's something I could get along with as I've had bad experiences with budget Ibby necks (fuck the 2x4-shaped Wizard II) before.

    Also, the pickguard on that particular one you've linked to doesn't seem to fit right on the treble side cutaway. Hmm.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    So they're finally releasing these outside Japan, took them long enough.

    Time for the Prestige HSH counterparts to follow suit.
