This was half of a two at once deal. The seller had two red Roadstars for sale, one metallic red with maple fretboard and one flat red with rosewood fretboard. We couldn't choose, so we didn't ;-). In time one of the two will have to leave, but until I've decided which one, I'll just enjoy them both. This one is a bit of a mystery, the body looks like an RS405 (including the color) but that model doesn't have a maple fretboard. On the other hand the RS205 has the maple fretboard, but has a different tremolo and isn't in metallic red. Also, there are no markings on the neck or in the neck pocket. So whether this is a franken-iba or just slightly off-spec, we don't know.
