There is nothing "wrong" with this model. Fact of the matter is, the guitar is readily available (a three week wait was only one week).
Fact of the matter is, buyers for the chain stores "roll the dice" on alot of things. They cannot stock everything, so they take chances, especially if they pick up or expand new lines. Did anyone notice the amount of Schecters or ESPs showing up on guitar racks where Ibanez was? Sure, some is trend driven, but there are other incentives made by companies to the store buyers to carry their product. The newer products, like the RG421, aren't proven, so they may get overlooked.
