Uh, Paul...it's the Capital One Arena. MCI and Verizon are out.
At least he didn't say The Capital Centre
did I hear correctly taht the PRS SS new colors/maple are limited to 500 pieces total?
No, I think that was just the nebulizer one, which is only with rosewood anyway. I'm sure they'll sell as many of the other colors as they can...
Yep, just the Nebula was limited to 500.
I saw Ozzy - and Metallica for the only time - at the Cap Center. And a number of Pens-Caps games there.
Also have a Kiss bootleg video from there.
Played a John Mayer Fender strat last night.
I can grab it used for 1500. Is the Silver sky $1000 better? I was looking into them and with tax it gets to be like 1490.
I'm think John Mayer thinks so.
If you are paying full MAP for any guitar find a different dealer ( IMHO )
You can get a used Silver Sky for just a few $100 more than what the Strat is listed for and a new one with a warranty for quite a bit less than a $1000 more.
Just pre-ordered this...CANNOT WAIT!
Congrats! I've got one pre-ordered too. Looking forward to it!
I ended up grabbing one after all, albeit at a bit of a premium to other retailers. But with the limited number in Canada, gotta just go for it!
Care to share how much of a premium you paid?
Going rate in Canada on Silver Skys is $3000 CAD, which is what I paid for my Dodgem blue. A few retailers had the Nebula at $3400, but I had to pay $4000. They mentioned the low supply and high demand and that they wouldn't be price matching competition. I understand that for sure. Just a bit unfortunate.
Ah well... just money, right?
You'll probably be able to sell it for much more than that if you wanted to
I hear you. IMO there's no difference b/w you saying you want to pay that premium b/c you love the color in the SS, and someone else saying they want to pay a premium for a Core or PS. We each place an inherent value on the things we choose to pursue, and if lots of other folks didn't happen to agree w/you on this one, it wouldn't have been priced for that much over "sticker" in the first place. I wouldn't, but only b/c it's a righty. If I found a lefty? I'd start a bidding war to get it.
Either way, early congrats on your new guitar!
Are the SS guitars priced higher than other bolt ones because of John Mayer’s name?
also, do you think this will become PRS best selling guitar of all time when they’re said and done?
Doubt it would sell more than the Custom 24...
Well, the trick is to figure out what is considered "when they're all said and done".
If PRS can keep pumping out CU22/24s, Silver Skies, and 594s because there is constant demand, then they will never be "all said and done". Much like how F & G keep rolling out Classic and new variations of their iconic models.
IMHO, the greatest threat to PRS's legacy is long term senior management and temptations of buyouts/mergers, say 20 or 40 years from now. The next 10 to 20 years should be pretty darned glorious, IMHO. I really look forward to the 50th anniversary, for example. I might even be retired by then!
I just hope to still be alive!
