    Uhoh...

    I think I see an HB and maybe a Starla headed my way.
    Not a Mira though. I already have 2 of those.

    Hmmm, either SE Hollowbody seems like a great option for those hankering after a core version but price-conscious!

    I "need" a piezo in any model if it is generally available, so I'd probably just pony up for another core. Speaking of which, I do still "need" a HB II (w/ piezo) in my collection...

    How much do you think those HB's will cost. I reckon they will enroach on S2 pricing and be in the $1100 - $1500 price range.

    Music Zoo estimates on the HBII are ~1250, HB Standard is right under 1K

    Pre-orders are already up on Reverb and other certain retailers. Your guess was a bit high for the range of the Standard vs the HB II. And that is all we shall say about MAP/retail pricing.

    The bone nuts are a nice touch on the HB’s too... and ebony boards and binding? Sheesh.

    Are Jack and Paul in a battle or something? The Mira and Starla are like a warning shot over the bow to the S2 line... All they gotta do is put some nicer/bigger frets on these SE’s and the locking tuners and... S2 who?

    Great guitars and some awesome playing by BE as well. Love the woody tone of the HB Std.

    Shawn you must have been fair p€€ing yourself over on the SS thread!

    Both HB models come with hard cases and are strung from factory with 10s. Very interesting.

    Yeah, close to $1,200 now, so firmly out of the "SE" pricing sweet-spot of sub-$900 guitars. Not saying that they're priced too high. On the contrary, a great deal for a hollowbody of that caliber, but I'm not sure it's a student edition any more. :cool:

    On that stoptail Starla, I can see a Bigsby B5 mounted with a Vibramate - a no-drilling drop-in!

    Uhhhhhh SE HBII??? 58/15S??? Covered???

    I probably owe some apologies to anyone I ever told it wouldn’t happen! And, in the same breath... I’ll have one please!

    Kinda sad to see the Mira leave the S2 line, but very cool that it’s still around. Also, let’s get that 2 piece stoptail on more SE’s!!!
