    Certainly someone here has forgotten they've got one of these -- in one of the finishes pictured -- under the bed and still in Excellent condition. PM me if you're ready to part with it, thanks...!

    I had the Shine version, loved the look of the guitar. I will probably rue selling it...

    Kicking myself for not grabbing one always liked them, along with an SX ISIS, and one of the Douglas superstrats, can't remember the name now.

    Yeah, man. They were sweet. I had a green one and I wish I had kept it. Sold it in a fit of GAS.

    Actually, that thread makes quite clear via posts from Kurt Zentmaier (with the photo below) that the inlays in question were not painted on, but were, in fact, dyed wood blocks.

    Yeah, and the body shape in general just looks great to me. Good (and complementary) headstocks, as well.

    I wanted one of those from the first time I saw one. I remember someone on here, (@snarph maybe?) was selling one a few years back and I was broke as hell and it was tearing me up.

    I think I'm about 2 or 3 years too late on that one! But I'll keep it in mind - you've always got stuff.

    I had a natural and green one when Kurt had them on clearance. Ended up selling both cause I needed funds 7 or 8 years ago
