These guys just hit the market.

They have some interesting design ideas, and if they sound & feel good, I may just have to add them to my G.A.S. list for more surf guitar goodness (alongside Reverends, J. Backlunds and assorted Stratclones, of course).

I have my eyes on 3 different Manta Ray 390s right now...don't know if I should or not.

(Buy one, not all three.)

Pulled the trigger this morning on a 2011 Manta Ray 390 on Reverb.com. Now begins the painful waiting process...

Congrats! I loved my 290. Probably get another one here after a while. What color did you get?

The only one available at this time: violin brown.

If I had realized the 390 was a limited edition- only about 90 made, @40- something of which were violin brown, with equal distribution of the rest between the other 5 colors- I'd have bought one of the other colors back in the day. But I'm happy!

When I finally decided to get serious about getting one, I found 4 (all VB). 3 were used, one NOS. One of the used ones went in days, since they priced it to sell. It sold in just a couple of days after being listed, hours before I finished my hemming and hawing on the day I discovered it.

There was a brief moment when I thought I found a Russian site with all the colors still in stock. Since my Russian is non-existent, I contacted Reverend to see if they knew anything about that store's inventory. Alas, they just hadn't revised their store's website to take down the Revs.

The NOS one I actually DID find is a beauty, but it can't seem to get answers about it from the company selling it. If I really like the 390, I may just CALL their asses and buy it anyway.

Ima gonna watcha dat axe, f'sho! The NOS one is @$100 more. The other used ones have been selling between $150-250 less. But Black #1 of 10 could still disappear in a hurry, even at that price, 'cause #1.

Ooooh! Dat black. I know what you mean I have bought a guitar/amp that I wanted but there was another one I wanted more then as soon as I pull the trigger on one the other one comes up. Soon as I bought my Ibby Prestige 7 an amp came up that I wanted. It's a vicious cycle!

I see the Reverend Warhawk 390 IIs (hardtail) & IIIs (Bigsby) on Reverb & eBay all the time for very reasonable prices. One W390II recently sold for @$575.
