Ok, someone needs to pick this up before I do. I have no need for another twin humbucker guitar but this thing is beautiful! The price isn't bad either.

It is pretty. You should get it, since it's not my money. :)

I'm resisting this one, pretty close to me: https://skagit.craigslist.org/msg/d/lan ... 21569.html I need fewer guitars but still have the urge to buy them.

Do these use the same saddles as the CS and maybe TS?

Do NOT tempt me. :devil2:
Dang, that one looks good too.

The non trem RS guitars do use the same bridge saddles as CS and TS.
They were all saddled with the same problem. . . :toopidlol:

Agreed. Same saddles. They look to be in good shape on both though. They usually take on an angle when they are ready to fail.

Shipping is a bit high on the Regurge one but it looks to be in excellent shape and the OHSC is definitely a plus. The CL one may be a refin and the fingerboard is dirty so I'd probably want to see that one up close before plunking down $300. At least the seller on Regurge took the time to clean it well before presenting it for sale.

I see the RS come up regularly on Guitar Sinner and almost as regularly on MusicGoGrind. I got my RS-Bobcat IV from Guitar Sinner for $249 before shipping (about $20 or so).

The one on Regurge has been listed for a year so they might be willing to take a little less to offset the excessive shipping.
