*former S3040PL owner's opinion*

I think they play great. *The Ultra neck is far more comfortable than the usual paper-thin necks for me. *The S body is really comfortable, but not always easy to get used to. *I think the build quality is exceptionally better than your average S520 or whatever.

List price - I believe $1999. *In near-mint condition I think they are worth around $900 although they go for less now and then.
