    NAMM just happened, so it is probably going to take a bit for the website to be updated to reflect the pretty sizable lineup changes.

    Maybe. The Game Changer was off the site last week when it was discontinued, though.

    What? GC is discontinued? So does that mean support and app development will cease?

    Also need to realize the BFR stuff from NAMM has not been announced, could be a Luke 25 coming still. What was released from NAMM is the base stuff with the changes to the base.

    I don't expect to see any improvements under the circumstances. Unfortunate side effect of a fine instrument that needs software and doesn't maintain critical mass in sales.

    I'd been contemplating adding an HH model to the stable, but this pretty well makes the decision for me between that and the AL HH. (I'd really like to have an AL pinkburst - never thought I'd say that when I first saw both the body and color - but I've missed the boat on that, it seems.)

    Aww man!
    I'm bummed that the Luke 2 has been discontinued...Lucky I picked up a PDN late last year which has become my 4th Luke, and my 2nd Luke2.
    I still prefer the Luke 1/2 model over the LIII, even though there's not much in it.

    So the Luke II is gone. The only site I still see them for sale is Musicians Friend in Luke blue. Will there be anymore future Luke's with a sharper V profile (instead of the current more rounded neck) and Emgs (either the early sa or sl combo)?

    That would depend on what Steve Lukather plays. They are artist models after all. He's moved on from the Luke 2, and the Luke III was designed to his current preferences.

    I see a healthy supply of Luke IIs on the used market. So it's not like they're unobtanium.

    Standard Luke 2s are easy to get, but BFRs seem to be like gold dust. I've spent the last month scouring every outlet I can think of in Europe and the US, and even used Google to contact Japan, Australia etc, and nothing. Just putting this last post up in case anyone knows of a Blueberry Burst Luke 2 BFR anywhere, either flame or quilt. If not, I'm going the John McGuire route instead.

    And I just looked into that Japanese one and it's listed on eBay but it's no longer listed on their site. So I can't find any out in the wild!
