Yamaha released an early shipment of (2) Yamaha A3070 units to us this week, however, one was already pre-sold, so we still have one A3070 available.  Uncertain as to when we will get the next shipment, but they generally only come in either onzies or twozies for the first few shipments so get your pre-order in if interested in any of these 2017 models.   Call for pricing if interested.
