Youre looking at the 20th, not a regular model...

Yeah people are complaining that that is a bit confusing. I think the 20th should have their own section.

Essentially, it IS a Prestige, just that it doesn't say it on the headstock because these are true to the original except they have Prestige finishing to the neck.

They messed up the neck specs on the page too. They know about the screw up and it's gonna be changed.

It would be really cool if they sell really well and they keep making them in the future, and rerelease some of the other classic colours.

Specially when theyre limited in number... putting it up along with the regular models would make people go out and buy it, only to be disappointed they cant get one..... :/
