Is 2011 a good year for them? How's $550 for one with no case, assuming it's in good shape? It's black 'n maple btw. I've looked into the various Special vs Standard threads and the consensus seems to be this one has slightly inferior tuners and bridge, non string-through bridge, and doesn't come with a case when it's new. They both apparently have graphite support rods in the neck? Is that about it?
