    Yeah, they're keeping it simple with Natural, VS and Cherry, but if the model proves to be really popular maybe we'll eventually get Ice Tea, etc? :hmm: If I like it I won't be waiting though :)

    A very interesting concept, love the 339 body size (though the super thin feeling neck takes some to get used to).

    I wish theyd make these to the same standards as the Elitists or John Lennons. Ive owned one MIC Casino and it sounded like a toy to me after 2-3 days...the Elitist is light years ahead.

    I had a dream last night that these guitars were available and people I knew had them.

    Dreams can be so cruel, eh?

    Apparently, this guitar is on my radar for an addition to my collection... if I'm to believe my subconscious mind.

    Not gonna buy one since I recently picked up a 339, but I do like the look of these. Looking forward to seeing some of you lucky bastards' NGD threads.

    The Coupe is full hollow and the neck joins the body at the 19th fret. Wildkat is semi hollow and the neck joins at the 17th. I don't know if the pickups are the same (?) P90R/T Vs P90R/T Dogear classics.

    Not really.....

    Wildkat is 'heavily chambered' - Casino Coupe is full hollow

    The Coupe is still scheduled to start shipping tomorrow. I'm hoping they will appear shortly in the local GC so I can play one and make up my mind. :)
