From Gene:

See attached pdf file in case you don't have the original spec sheet. Congrats rare find, only 20 of the 100 were ever made and yours came earlier than some of its other lower numbers, so 5 went out actually before in 2002 where 3 and 4 went out in 2003. 🙂

Took me a good long while to source 100+ Indian Rosewood necks, they came in as billets with their ends milled like they may become chair legs as that was some loophole for them to get out of their country into the USA for furniture or something, don't remember exactly but had to secure all 100 before we could offer the limited run. The supplier told us at the time it would be harder to do again as lumber restrictions tightened up.

I do have a friend selling a similar model, he's holding out for a solid $5k USD and it's in mint shape, nice 59 neck shape, hard to find anything of that size these days.
