Apparently, it's a limited edition for Europe only, limited number of 500.
Some new sounds, probably downloadable via Axial for existing owners...
Link from the Thomann site, discovered by accident, can't seem to find anything on the Roland website.
Looks very cool, though...

No extra sounds, after all, my bad... Still, for someone looking for a 61 key version of either of these, the small price increase is justified for such a cool looking instrument...

Don't keyboard players have it hard enough trying to navigate under the barf-O-rama strobe lighting without having to worry about blacked out keys as well? :p

I always wondered what the attraction of a black keyboard was. :eek:

I guess this would be more to your liking ;)

Korg had the SV1 with respectively black keys instead of white, and with the black keys replaced with either white keys (thus, inverted), or red keys.

The Roland models are all black, so no contrast whatsoever. I can see how it could pose a problem on a stage, though. More for collectors, then?

The Sledge Special Edition was available when I bought mine but I opted for the fire truck yellow version anyway.

I actually looked into getting one of the red/black reversed keys SV-1. The look of the keyboard wasn't here nor there as I'm more of a function over form guy, but I was attracted because they were going for a very good price new. However I was concerned about exactly the issue Gary raised - being able to see the keys under stage lighting conditions.

I consulted with a few fellow keys players who agreed with me it might be a pain in the you-know-what. My talent is limited enough that I don't need to create extra impediments to playing accuracy!

I ultimately plumped for the standard black and white SV-1 and have not regretted that choice for a moment.
