    I havent seen these! What do you guys think?
    The 4 looks like a Ibanez Eurothingy...
    But i dont get the black part on the bottom of the headstock...

    Or have i missed the boat completley, and these things have been around for years? :D

    They've been around for over a year I think. Well, it's been announced for over a year.

    I recently saw the 4 and 5 string when I was back home over Winter Break..

    And traded my old Yamaha 5-string for that blue one you see above :D It's awesome, except for the electronics. Its a litte noisy and not shielded very well but it seems like Yamaha electronics have always been like that...
