The Tuning/string gauges:
I recently flipped my old Rosewood stick on ebay to finance this one -- a 12 string model.. Made a sweet 400$ profit over what I originally paid, too! I ordered this one directly from Stick Enterprises.
This stick was built & sold last year, but someone decided they didn't want to play stick anymore, so they sold it back to SE. Its basically new, with a little wear & tear. Less than a year old, too. It has all the modern features, and thanks to the complete setup they gave it, and the extra attention, its as good as new, at a significant savings .
Their new models have some pretty bitchin' features over my old one --
-new trussrod design: rather than a regular style guitar truss rod the previous ones had, this one has the truss rod bolted in the middle and a nut at each end. Essentially, it functions as two truss rods: one for the top 8 so frets, and another for the other 9th-23rd.
-New frets: these have giant fucking pyramid frets. They're stainless steel, too.
-The new sticks are 36" scale instead of 34". Its one fret added below the first fret essentially (think like those Baritone conversion necks you can get for bolt on guitars). Fret markers are in the original spot, though, so since you tune down 1/2 step to compensate for the extra fret, all the notes fall on the markers the same way they do on the 34" scale. No big deal since you don't have open strings.
-New nut: These are two shelves, essentially, that can be adjusted vertically with two bolts, rather than an individual nut like the old ones.
My inlays also glow in the dark:
Great looking stick, dude.
