I purchased this guitar in November of 2009 from a fellow member of the petrucci forum. It has been, by far, the most beautiful and playable guitar I've ever owned. However, my main focus over the years has changed to classical singing and with an impending home purchase looming I simply can't justify continuing to hang on to it any longer. So, with regret, I've decided to offer it up for sale here. The guitar has mainly been used in my smoke free home and it's been treated with good care. There's very light pick swirling between the neck pickup and the pickup switch, which is hardly noticeable given the sparkle drip paint job. Overall it is in excellent condition. It was originally intended for display at NAMM (i believe it was the first silver sparkle drip to come out of the factory), as is indicated in the spec sheet. Price dropped to $1900 shipped.
