    Nah

    We want a double-pointy-shorthorn-of-Rhoads broom with an ESP bottleopener stock... or maybe a horizon cockstock

    Looks like they are going to be doing a limited run again ala the Adam jones Sig.

    Almost makes me want to get one just to flip.

    I like when even the advertising for a new model of guitar brags about the waitlist like it's a net positive for fans. "Man, you're gonna love being on a waitlist for the next three years wondering if that money's just gonna disappear with nothing to show for it when I switch companies again. It's gonna really keep your heart racing!"

    ^That could be part of the appeal to collectors- not just the rarity of the item but the extent of inconvenience- searching, waiting, etc.- that goes into its acquisition. Without that, then you just paid a lot of money for a doohickey which in this day and age is not uncommon.

    Can't imagine living my life where inconvenience is a point of pride. Life is inconvenient enough without looking for new hoops to try and jump through.

    The natural progression for Gibson would be to retire Murphy Lab and offer "natural ageing". Pay now, collect your guitar in 40 years!

    People who collect those kind of guitars aren't inconvenienced, they just pass a phone call. I wouldn't imagine a dude like Producer Michael pressing F5 all day long.

    Maybe I'm just not as cynical or miserable as you guys, but did we read the same ad?

    Seems like a lot of whinging from people not planning on buying the guitar.

    Remember that weird Mako acoustic he designed? It had the strange holes. Let me grab the pic.

    Not sure where the limited edition thing is coming from at all. :lol: Sure they may do some exclusive limited colors, but there's no fucking way the whole line is gonna be limited.

    Yeah, i'm a Megadeth fan since the Rust era, but NGL, i really like this guitar lol. I came close to pulling the trigger on this more times than i care to count. The only reason i didn't is because i don't play acoustic enough to justify the price tag. I always looked at it like why spend that much on an acoustic when i can pay a bit more and get an electric that i'll play daily.

    Man, it's 20-fucking-21, everything is "limited" whether it's meant to be or not. :lol:

    Well, technically, every guitar is a limited edition in the sense that they will stop producing that particular model at some point :lol:
