I had an original run way back when they first came out. Silly me, traded it away. Now I have another one but this is 2nd or 3rd run and not as nice as the originals. Plays great, typical fast Peavey neck with decent electronics. Tremolo is Floyd Rose licensed and stays in tune. Reverse headstock is a look I have always loved. Great shredder. Haven't seen one go for less than $600 bucks and 1st run Vandys are over a grand.
