These are LA Custom Shop designed. I believe that they may have actually been built in Japan (the serial number would say for sure). I do know that they were made for the Japanese market, so if there is one available near you, I'd consider it if for nothing else the novelty that noone else has one.
There were several models available in this series including two 6 string RG guitars,and an AX 6 string with a Lo-Pro Edge. I don't remember if there was an S body guitar or not.
As far as pricing, I'd consider used pricing the same as a current model used UV.
