    Nah, the HH ALbert is having a revival later this year - Scott Ball (i think) mentioned it a while back. Boost circuit a la Valentine and Luke, colour change in the offing. Maybe Casey can chime in on that one?
    Oh and Casey, can you tell your dad the ALOC are jonesing for the 2 MM90 model Albert is currently rocking.

    I knew it was going to be dangerous to look inside this thread.

    I doubt that the AL HH is pretty popular from an artist stand point from the posting and Instagram shots.

    I think those 2 MM90 ALs are sick. TBH I don't think they're likely, but never say never.

    Here's my personal opinion: AL and Silo models will always be safe. They're such a big part of the company heritage, and are hallmarks of Sterling, Dudley, everyone et al at EBMM's teamwork and inspiration. The problem is that the strat/LP crowd just don't "get" them. I think they've always had an uphill battle, even though they offer pretty much everything those guys could want out of a guitar.

    As of right now there is no official statement on the HH AL boosts, but there are always developments. You guys know we've put them in L3s, JPs, Valentines, they're a natural fit for HH ALs. Stay tuned.

    I really hope this will be true. TBH I like the oldschool Axis/Silo/Morse/AL/Luke (I and II)/(1st) JP lines better than the current 'new' models. I'm 30 years old now and already sounding like an old man. Oh well..

    Well trying to upload my pics but photobucket is being difficult this morning

    And not able to upload files directly to the site for some reason.

    As of 2:00 PM yesterday all were still available, the Koa 20th was fantastic!

Heading back this afternoon... hope to see you to thank you in person. Craig

    I heard the Spalted Axis sold...

    If only that Koa 20th wasn't a hardtail....... Looks awesome but with a hardtail I honestly would never play it. I need a trem. Maybe I could route it and add a Floyd?!? Nah, would be a sin to alter that guitar.
