    Monthly? That's interesting.

    Monthly is a good approach because fan-bois of a particular instrument can hit "their month" and manufacturing doesn't get a HUGE workload of everybody ordering at once.

    Speaking of fan-bois... I'm squinting at the fuzzy pictures trying to see when the Morse comes around, but I bet those are previous photos they've just fuzzed for effect... *sigh*

    I'm most intrigued by the two St. Vincent models coming up. November's looks a lot like the Island Burst finish that I've seen on Reverb before (a NAMM show one off, or somesuch?) but December's looks like Vincent Blue, so I'm VERY curious to see what makes it special.

    NOV:

    DEC:

    EDIT: On further comparison, the November Vincent appears to have a lighter-than-rosewood headstock. Maple, like some of those models comes with, or something more exotic? No clue. And the body may actually be a little lighter than Island Burst. In this fuzzy photo, it doesn't appear to darken at the edges, nor to have the red undertones (much more yellow), but honestly, that could easily just be a difference in the photography.

    And if I get REALLY squinty, the December one looks to have a darker fingerboard than headstock. So...Ebony board on a Rosewood neck? Or, given the Wenge neck on this month's offering, maybe the neck is Wenge? I had a Warwick bass with a Wenge neck once. Beautiful wood, but I didn't love the way it felt under my hand. Or, wait, maybe that was Ovangkol and the board was Wenge? Crap, now I can't remember.

    Island Burst, for reference:

    These instruments will be available in stores beginning in the month listed. Only the quantities ordered at the NAMM Show in 2017 will be produced, and it looks like the production numbers are being released on at least some of these. For example, the September releases are the Ivory White Valentine with a worldwide quantity of 89 pieces, the Claro Majesty 39 pieces, and the trans black Axis 26 pieces.

    The JP models in the BFR pieces shown at NAMM are all Majesty based.
