    ^ Yeah the JP's are amazing instruments and definitely their bread and butter on the guitar side of things, but the Stingray is on the level of things like the P Bass, Strat, Les Paul, etc. as far as status.

    No they just won't be releasing anything till Namm even if it happens. His main guitars are JP sigs so its hard for a sig of a sig. He does have a custom Cutlass, which could be the basis for a sig.

    Just asking because he was giving a lot of hints that it was coming in 2016, then nothing during 2017. A JP8 was also confirmed in 2016 by Brian Ball, but never saw the light of day. I guess we'll have to wait for NAMM and see!

    So how long's it been since the "announcement" now.........about 2 years? Hell, even Tosin's moving faster than this.

    I feel like this makes a good bit of sense, it would just suck to me because the JP/Majesty series are WAY more comfortable/ergonomic.

    It’s not that the cutlass shape is somehow bad, just that the other two styles were designed with “improving playability” as a core design point.

    Would love an update of any kind to be sure.

    Was he ever hinting at a signature, or just a custom? He always hints at his new EBMM's he left a few teasers before his custom cutlass came this year.

    And the JP 8 was always going to take ages, and JP himself only said this year he was working on playing them on the new album. It wouldn't release till he's happy with it, it's his guitar.

    I believe Ball only said there was one in development, JP probably has one if he's practicing on the thing but it'd only be him again until he's happy with it.

    American-made guitars in Japan have a huge premium. It would be much cheaper in the States.

    ^ Testify. If you want a high-end Suhr, Tom Anderson, PRS, etc. Japan is not the place to buy from.

    Yep, the local shops are full of guitars like that well over the 600k JPY range.

    Those Japan models look incredible.

    I imagine if I were Jason, I would be a little T'd off though. There's something super cool about having the only one of something.

    There's something super cool about getting kickbacks for each one sold though...

    Lmao exactly. I can’t imagine caring about “exclusivity” when money is on the table.
