    yeah, you're right about the looks. the special is flat top, and the flame is round top, and you can get quilted designs, etc. for the flametop. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    i don't know about pricing, but i got my special for around 1300, new. canadian dollars, too, by the way. [img]smile.gif[/img] so for used, i'm not exactly sure.

    The Special flametops don't have the plastic binding, but they do have natural binding, which is where they mask off the edge of the maple top before they stain it, then remove the masking before clear coating. IMO, the natural binding looks better.

    For a cheaper way of doing things, the natural binding actually looks pretty good. The maple cap on the Flametop Special will also brighten up the tone a little as well.
