Ummmm, that may be just a poor pic, but it looks like the flame went out on that one !!! It was also available in Amber and had the std AN/BV/TZ pup combination. Ebony and maple are bright sounding tonewoods so should sound a lot brighter than the rosewood and mahogany/maple cap models. I'm sure it would look better in the flesh and it's quite rare and collectible so would be a good buy.
