    Yep. There are a ton of Majesty models because people buy them. Myself included :lol:

    I realized a while ago 8s just aren't for me so not interested in the new 8 though... hoping something as cool as the Purple Nebula comes out for the 20th since I missed out on the Nebulas

    John let some details out in his recent interview with Fluff. It's a hardtail Majesty with fanned frets.

    FYI: JP has a pretty awesome giveaway going on at his website - it includes a 7-string Majesty, JP signature wah etc! And best of all, it's a worldwide one.

    Just noticed a bunch of the JP variants are now listed as "color discontinued" on the EBMM website. Hoping we are getting close to the anniversary guitars release.

    Looks like all but 3 of the Majesty models and all of the non-JP15s are listed that way.

    I think the final Portnoy album (Black Clouds.....) was one of their absolute career best. They haven't matched it since, although by the 3rd album, the other Mike had settled in with the band to a high degree, although he's no songwriter like Portnoy was....and he's not as much of an artist either.

    I compare DT losing Portnoy to Slayer losing Lombardo. Sure, Bostaph was more of a precision machine, but the X-factor was lost forever.....

    Hope we get some good deals if stores blow out the old colors...could definitely go for a Majesty 7.
