a) Can't post links to the bay on here, just post the auction number.
b) If you're considering build quality versus value - YES, prestige is totally worth the extra scratch. The neck quality and fret dressing is worlds better than the production models to start with, not to mention the upgraded hardware. Secondly, the top wood does affect the tone. Maple capped guitars will balance the sound of the dark mahogany and the bubinga will make the tone more round and complex. More wood = more tone. More cap = more tone change.
