    2013 70's reissue and Michael Schenker's 1979 Block inlay! Just joking of course, it's an Edwards Japanese Schenker model.

    Very cool!
    A few more were shipped...maybe 73-74...very few.
    I forget now.
    But I'm pretty sure they were all from the original batch of 350.

    No, the Medallions were only made in 71.

    KK is awesome, and long winded. Odd how he doesn't really know much about what he has. Such as he called his 67 a 64 for years, which of course there never was. And originally it was Sparkling Burgundy, refinished to CAR. Also he says the medallions were a run of 500. Not so, only 350 in 1971. I have a KK Downing Signature V, #17 of 30, pictured somewhere in this thread, along with my Medallion V.

    Man, I want one of these, don't even know who she is, but that guitar looks sweet! :applause:

    I'm thinking about getting the 2016 T version, but I don't know about the smaller size, puts me off.

    Firebirds and V's are the only guitars I like those tuners on.
