RG1550M (Poison Pumpkin) build quality

Has anyone got comments on the build quality of this relatively new RG1550M, compared to the RG1550 of a a few years ago? I seem to remember reading somewhere on here about poorly finished frets, just cant find the post anywhere. (looks like a nice guitar, my kind of colour)

Thanks.

Having one in my hands I can confirm that the build quality is superb, no worries, pity about the pickups though!!
