This model has never- to my knowledge- been stocked in this area since it was announced- and is now apparently no longer made according to the usual suspects UK online retailers... Although some 2016 models may still be on sale. Did the '17 ever actually exist? Or are the tales of a self-tuning, dip-switching be-witching shiny AL-U-Min-I-UM cased ( I did mention the UK ) all-singing, all-dancing High Performing Lester simply a myth?? ... And where can I get one on closeout price? The 2018 model has no pickup surrounds... they've just taken it too far! Did ANYONE buy one?
