If you are interested, there is a red Stagemaster for sale on eBay right now. The person selling it obviously doesn't know anything about the guitar (or guitars in general for that matter). This Stagemaster certainly isn't one year old. If you are interested in a red HSS, here is your chance. I kind of like the red ones; however, the Arctic White Stagemaster is still my holy grail.
P.S. I'm still waiting on the "Superswitch" I ordered last week. Once I get it, I'll continue on the project. And also, this eBay sale is over so I removed the link.
