    AFAIK they all say 'Special Edition' on the neck plate. Mine does, and so does every one that I have ever seen.

    I hope yours isn't made in China. They are supposed to be made in Japan. Mine is.

    nice.
     
  11. There is "special edition" on the plate because it is a signature model. moreover it is supposed to be a limited edition also. But they couldn't write "Signature model limited edition"(too long and cheesy:D ) they just wrote "Special Edition".
    AFAIK, all the Geddy Lees are made in Japan(or crafted in japan;) )
    I'll put Villex pups on mine(i'll have to put the jack location elsewhere, but I'm getting off the topic...:p )
