That's a beautiful instrument you have there. I can't comment on the price, that's between you and GC. :) Brazilian rosewood can vary in color quite a bit. I've seen pieces of BRW that vary from very, very dark brown to almost yellow in the same piece. I think the quality of the Modern Eagle is as about as close as one can get to Private Stock, without getting a Private Stock. The Modern Eagles may not have the most striking maple tops, but the workmanship, tones, and playability are spectacular. Congrats!

Welcome! Beautiful axe! The BRW may have also dried slightly and lightened over time, I recommend using Fret Doctor to nourish the wood and take it back to it's original colour (assuming it has lightened).

It sounds like you might have paid full retail price.

It sounds like you might have paid full retail price.

thanks for reply..

I bought the ME1 from Guitar Centry and chosen form 5 ME1s

but only this one has the highest price(7300 USD)... it's higher than the other ME1 (4XXX USD)in Guitar center.....and only this ME1 is no discount.....

So it's not the problem of full retail price

Oh...here is a further explanation:

When I decide to buy Modern Eagle 1...

I have seen the same ME1 at Sam Ash at the same time ... It' a red ME1 too...and the price is higher than other ME1s in Sam Ash ....

It's just the same circumstance in the two Instruments store...that's what I interesting about the reason is...

Anyway..at last... I chosen the good looking one from Guitar Center....:cool:

Thanks for your reply again...:p
