    Besides the gold hardware, I wonder what the difference is between the two models?

    The Bill Dickens model is superior.
    Not sure why but I had my hands on a 7 like this and it was easy to play even though I am a 4 and a half string guy.
    I thought it a bargain at $950 too.
  3. I didn't see a listing for the Bill Dickens model anymore. I assume it already sold. However this is usually the lowest price point I see. Before I bought mine I spent literally a month pouring through classified listings.

    Aside from gold hardware, the Bill Dickens model has as wicked preamp. I own one and have yet to realize its full potential.
