JEALOUS! I've always wanted one of those, even if people don't like the top on the USRG10. And blue is my favorite color.

How does it play? How does it sound? How's the zero-tension neck to adjust?

This one is in Transparent Blue. Looks like someone threw a pebble into still water. :)

Didn't even need adjusting and played great out of the case. Cost me 800 on the 'bay. A fun feature is that there's a hole on the neck at the 17th fret which "unlocks" the headstock to pull off and make adjustments. There's no truss rod in any USRG model.

Nice, I made yer guitar... mid 90s I made all the USRGs... Bobby was the painter for this guitar... he would drink like a madman... but he was a great painter... If you removed the headstock and metal bar from the neck youd see my initials AH on the wood in pencil. Cool glad ppl are enjoying the US model. We made it in Coopersburg at PBC factory. cheers let me know how its holdin up!
