    I believe this is correct Brian. Only the first 500 have a badge, the hard case available for seperate purchase will not have the badge.

    Wow, nice demo of the differences. Raw tones and you have to fight the fret buzz, fretting out...or the fuller toned with definition, better playing instrument

    I suppose there are different kinds of collectibles, and different kinds of collectors.

    There are folks who invest only in historically significant pieces, proven to be desirable and valuable over time, like prewar Martins, 59 Bursts, the old D’Aquistos, early Strats, or even museum pieces like 17th century guitars, etc. I tend to think of folks who build these kinds of curated collections when I think of the term, ‘collector’. The Chinery or Steve Howe collections come to mind. But they aren’t the only kind, of course!

    There are folks who accumulate newer, very nice items that may, or may not, prove to be significant to anyone but the individual collector, and there are folks who are everything in between.

    If a brand new guitar is a collectible simply because it comes in a case with a plaque, by all means, more power to the collector who wants that. And I mean that in a positive, non-snarky way.

    It’s collectible if the collector wants it to be.

    Basically saying the same thing.

    Though in that case, anything is a collectible, including the ones with a gig bag, if that’s what the collector wants it to be.

    On a personal level, I have a few limited run PS models that I think of more as promotional in nature, than collectible. But then, too, as you know, I don’t collect things; I got ‘em because I liked ‘em.
