Re: Got my 2570 yesterday!
Speaking to one of the employees, they said that the original store was only as big as the room with the guitars in it and no big name manufacturers would give them the time of day at the NAMM booths. Now there's barely any space, as you said. I don't know how much business they do there, but I like the place anyhow.
Another note about this guitar - I typically do not care for the sharfin inlays, but the smoked mirror inlays on the rosewood fretboard look subtle & sweet.
