I really want to pull the trigger on a 305 over the summer. With the transition back to abalone birds this year, I can't help but wonder about the 305. It's late April, and I still haven't seen any online. I check a few times a week, still nothing...

Anyone score one this year? Are the birds now full abalone like the majority of the line, or the darker style from the last few years? (Like the Brent Mason model still has).

I'm really hoping abalone... maple neck/board, seafoam, and those colorful birds... OH YEA!
