This is a model that can only be bought directly from Japan. The body is Quilted Maple with an Agathis top. It has a Wizard III neck, hr2 bridge humbucker, hf2 neck humbucker and t6m single-coil in the center. The neck is also 19.5 mm at the 1st fret and 21.5 at the 12th fret. This is a cheaper RG model (I think around $400-425). Has anyone ever played one or show me where I can find a review of it?

The body woods are actually the other way around... it's agathis with a quilted maple top.

Considering it's a lower-end model available only as an import, chances are you won't find many people who have actually played one, let alone written a review of one. My guess is it would be roughly equivalent to a low-end 200-series RG model. The maple "top" is probably a paper-thin veneer that likely wouldn't affect the tone at all.
