    The color, which changes, when viewed from different angles.

    It's actually pretty cool, in-person.

    It is called 'rare' cause the seller wants some extra $$$

    Cool, limited color. I'd guesstimate about $800 here in the States.

    Thats exactly what i was getting at she is asking for £1800 = $2365 at the current rate. She is asking 3 times the price of a new one!

    Reminds me of one the knives they had to re-create on the tv show Forged in Fire. "This guitar...will kill." o_O

    Actually, the blue-teal, flip-flop color is relatively rare. Not worth anywhere near what the one in the OP is listed for, but definitely above market value.

    I almost pulled-the trigger on one of the Limited-Color Studios, when they were released, back in '03, but they were discontinued.

    Let's just see if it sells... :eek2:

    In the end which is worse, the seller who asks too much, or the buyer who pays it!:hmm:
