Hey guys, I did do a search but did not get my questions answered exactly. If the first two numbers indicate the year, it would make it a 93, which puts it in Korea. But the .pdf did not list the HB35S, just the HB35. I understand the HB35S was an upgrade, so it would have some slightly different specs. And I still don't have a good grip on going price for them now. I've played the guitar for a couple of days and am pretty sure I am going to buy it. It plays wonderfully, and I like it better then the Gretsch, Ibanez and Epi's I have picked up lately. With some new pickups and a little cleanup, it'll be fantastic. I just want to make sure that we are valuing it fairly.
