That reminds me. David Hite has an article on his web site about a new kind
of screw Buffet is using in some places on their instruments. I think he
said they started with serial number 426xxx. I was surprised when I looked
at my R-13, purchased in August 96, to see that it was 415xxx. I don't
think it had been sitting around at the dealer that long either.

$1800 new is an excellent price....but check the serial number....if it is
400,000 or later...ok, any earlier, and it is old stock.
