    Yes. But I don't know when orders actually stop being taken.

    I don't think we'll make an Old Smoothie or Classic how we used to again. We'll have a limited version of a Classic drop soon and then hopefully we can improve those concepts in 2022.

    *Edit just read the other thread..

    There is only so much capacity with Covid that we had to reduce certain offerings. To put it in perspective I would guess it's 40-1 for Special vs Classic sales.

    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    This morning I checked in to the MM-basses page to check out the new short scales and noticed the Classics and Smoothie missing from the lineup, then naturally came here to get the skinny. Sure glad to read that they aren't gone for good, and I'm VERY interested to see what the Limited version will be like.

    Oddly enough this news comes at the perfect time for me; I've been considering selling both my Classic and my Smoothie to generate funds for a new Taylor guitar, but I've not been able to bring myself to actually list them. I'll open the cases to snap photos for the listing, set the camera down, and pick one up to play-- then the other-- and don't you know it, two hours have passed and I've not taken a single photo LOL!

    Seeing the two models fall victim (temporarily) to Covid is a sign to hold on to mine. The Taylor can wait a little while longer

    The Classics (and indeed the Old Smoothie!) were wonderful additions.

    Here are two of the first batch of five which EBMM took to Bass Player Live in October 2009 to introduce the new line, Surf Green and Fiesta Red - B050501 and B050505. (The others were Shell Pink, Sonic Blue and Trans White.) The colours were renamed Mint Green and Coral Red for the production run.

    I just got mine in sunburst and let me assure you this thing shreds! They definitely made the right call by putting the roasted neck on it too. The low end is so thick itís awesome!
