I heard, based on year, the dots are different sizes? Are the necks the Ultra?
I loved the one I played at the local shop - they just want too much for it and I can't buy something without being able to take it back after a week if something is wrong. I'm checking GC daily to see when one of these in JB pops up.
congrats on your new axe!
It's a 1990. I don't know enough about the differences in Radius guitars to effectively comment on the dots or necks, sorry.
But, I may be able to somewhat help with your search. There is a Sea Foam Green for sale at the Joliet Guitar Center for $599.99 but it is the HSS configuration (here is the Guitar Center item #10966276
. The HH is REALLY hard to find so I had to jump on this HSH. There is also a Red one in HSS available at a Guitar Center in Connecticut for $479.99 (Guitar Center item #109550241).
I bought two Agile Interceptor Pros from Guitar Center's website from two different states, found that they were not for me and my GC in Arlington Heights took them both back with zero issues and gave me a full refund with no questions asked. You have 30 days to decide if you like a guitar. In that respect, GC is a good place. You are, however, responsible for shipping.
If you're dead set on JB then be patient and hold up, they show up once in a while. It is truly an amazing guitar, worth every penny, IMO.
For ****s and giggles, here's a pic I took today with the 540's other Ibanez
