There are folks selling these on the bay. I bought this one for 145.00 plus shipping. Made in China. It came exactly as described with one tiny finish flaw on the side of the headstock. It weighs 8lbs! If you have back issues you may have to check these out. The color is metal flake pearl. Has a P profile neck. The controls are Volume, Blend, and Tone (as they should be!) Came with a really super nice gig bag. The pickup output isn't super hot but it's very clean sounding. Lots of definition without being harsh or brittle.
