If it is absolutely mint, no more than $1500.

Re: how much should this set me back?

hmm, Ive only seen my teacher's friend's ebony board. Does the Vine stick out as much on the rosewood color as on the dark ebony???? (the reason its mainly a cosmetic issue for me, I love both rosewood and ebony equally, I like the feel of ebony a tiny bit more, but I like the tone of rosewood more... so either is good).

Cosmetically, IMO, the Vine stands out more and looks so much better on ebony

Not necessarily, I have a 2003 VWH with ebony board, and it has a Edge Pro. Still I agree, go with ebony....rosewood is a dime a dozen.

I got one with an ebony board. It's an 02 and it's awesome. You should get one. You won't be disappointed

I personally think, cosmectialy ebony look's way better, rosewood is alright but not for the VWH.
