    Ahhh dammit! I can't believe that. I can't check every website every second every day haha.

    I'm going to keep hunting! I've made calls to Sweetwater and Wild West and I have my name on lists in case any extras come up.

    This is a bit unrelated, but I got tired of checking every day if some EVH stuff was in stock, so I just told Sweetwater to notify when they're in stock.

    I recommend that if you haven't done so, I'd recommend going ahead and telling Sweetwater (not sure if Wild West does it too) to notify when something's in stock. Then again, you gotta act fast because you never know how many guitars they have in stock and how fast people are gonna act when they hear it's in stock.

    Yep sounds like it... guess I've just never been self-righteous or self-entitled enough to feel like I have a right to have a say in or be indignant about what other people do with their money

    I'm also pretty sure we've had this argument before...

    I'm just kind of blown away by these prices. A guitar went for more than I've paid for all my saxes combined NEW. About double, and it's a collectible item. The more I play the more I start to value functionality and my current rig is reflecting that pretty hard. I actually do love that color but honestly? I wouldn't pay more than probably $900 on a Gibson, it's just gonna get torn to bits and rebuilt anyways.

    Like yeah it looks perfectly how it should and I love the Trogly's guitar show for how gorgeous some of those instruments are but they're always instruments first. I can't wrap my head around it but if someone pays for it and people are living bc of it I can't really fault them.

    Has less to do with things like ideology, and more with me falling out of love with music & guitar.

    Peace & cheers! :cheers:

    Wow this thread went off rails haha.

    My main gripe with a hyped signature guitar is.... it's just a les paul. It aint even unique.

    I like players who created their own shape, or at least modified an existing one and called it their own. When I first saw the Music Man St. Vincent I thought what the fuck is that? but it grew on me and I'm glad EB took a chance on it. The Dean ML if it came out today would probably be met with confusion too, now it's a de-facto Dime sig (his Washburn sigs were pretty wild too).

    Feel free to ignore my babbling. I have nothing against people who'll buy a 6k LP and let it sit in a cupboard then sell it 10 years later.

    At this point, I’m just going to find a beat LPC and get it re-finished as an yellow’d/green’d Silverburst. Unless the Jones sig magically makes Danny Carey pop up in your house with his kit, ready to jam.

    Meh... 50s style. May as well be an epiphone masterdon model.

    A 79 reissue silverburst v would be cause for arousal.
