Any chance to see this beauty in Europe or USA?

This was one of a special order by Japanese dealer/distributor. A similar model was special ordered by Guitar Center a couple of years ago and may still be available through their stores.

Would the mapleglo get blackened with sweat/dirt w/o a gloss finish?

I guess that would depend on how often one bathes! No, I suspect the satin overcoat is just as protective as the glossy finish. It's not like it is unsealed wood.
