I know the website says first quarter of 2013, so we must be getting close. It is one model I'm quite curious about. I like the subtly changed shape - anyone know how thick this model will be? Looks like a beveled top, but it doesn't specify that. 25 1/2" scale is interesting too. Might be longer than I like, getting really used to the 245 scale I have now. But I am looking to add another SE to the herd.
