    Instead of a bevel we'll sequester a surgeon and get everyone's forearm bevelled so all guitars become suitable.

    Aww man, I'm selling TWO OF MINE that are exactly like this because of not having stainless steel frets. Such a major factor for me. I would be sooooooo down for a run like this!!!

    Personally I think we should just spec out a used prestige.

    Realistically, this could never happen. Not enough interest, and the interest we have could never settle on specs we all agree on. This is SSO, no one agrees with each other on coming up with guitar specs.

    Yeah I suppose so. Still, it’s a nice thought.

    Remember when this site created the Agile 8 string line? That was actually a really awesome guitar. Never happening again :lol:

    That was definitely a perfect storm situation.

    You had a popular, longstanding and motivated forum member, who happened to be a great designer too, rally the troops. Then Agile, was a newer builder who had built up tons of goodwill and was looking to expand. Finally the product was servicing a significant gap in the market.

    There are just so many options out there, at all price points, that something like this just isn't going to happen again anytime soon.
