    Yes. They've done away with bfr inlay and have instead gone with a neck plate at the joint with the bfr insignia there.

    thanks for reply, BTW it's a bad news for me,
    BFR inlay is very good-looking for me

    I must admit in the begining I didn't like it, now I'm used to it and actually love it.

    Good thing about the 12th fret inlay is that your guitar is immediatly recognisable, there is a huge 'wow factor' in it. My band mate said when he first saw the 25th 'wow you got your self a BFR !!!! '

    There was a thread a while back about this and it seemed as if most people liked it.

    I love it and my OCD is going to go off a little when future balls don't match my current collection.
