An HR Fusion III is up for  auction here in Auckland, New Zealand, but it is shockingly expensive. The owner could not sell it at 2,600 NZD, so he added another 1000. Go figure.



He's telling his wife, "But I TRIED to sell it!"...

Seriously, here's a brief article on Alex Lifeson's HR Fusion if anyone is interested:

Sorry I am late responding to this thread.  There is a beautiful Howard Roberts Fusion guitar for sale at Centerville Music in Centerville, Ohio.  He ships and his phone number is 937-436-2000.  Guitar looks brand new - slight fogging on the pickup covers (like all the old Gibson's do).  Good luck.
