    I really enjoy that purple top on the Majesty. What a gorgeous wood combination.

    Not usually too much of a fan of black guitars but the black St Vincent model is rather cool...

    That St Vincent model desperately needs a different headstock.

    I think people put mini-humbuckers in guitars to stop customers from buying them. I don't understand it from a marketing point of view, but it can be the only logical conclusion.

    I had a guitar with cheap mini humbuckers and that sounded great, I guess maybe not for heavier stuff but they had some really nice tones and who knows, I've heard pretty great metal tones from single coils on a tele so I guess it just depends lol.


    Also guys what is the difference between the sonic ecstasy and the illuminators? And anyone else notice the majesty pages don't list all the colors anymore? Are they getting rid of the older colors in favor of the new model? I really like the new colors but I'll also be bummed if I never get my hands on one of the matte blue ones in my life.

    If the CAD hadn't fallen 30% in the last few years, I'd really think about the JP15. It'll be over $4k here in canuckland, just too much for a single guitar.

    The black St. Vincent is awesome. I wish it came with regular humbuckers

    Same here, but I can't really justify a second Luke just for the sake of aesthetics, plus as it's a limited edition it will likely cost an arm and a leg. The majesties are sexy too.
