    Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say those are dicey... The fact that they're using Eddie's image to sell them also can't be legal internationally. They can probably get away with the stripes but once they use his image then all bets are off.

    No surprise. EVERTHING is expensive in Japan (and this website is from 2003!)

    Wait...you sure? XE gives me $1905.40...which is still too much, but not quite as ludicrous.

    And I just now noticed you have $36,000 and not 3600 like I initially thought.

    $2340 for the blue EBMM EVH is top of the market, but not astronomical at all. Mine is as nice that one and I wouldn't sell it for twice that. But I did recently pick up a nice cherryburst one for $1825.
