    Is the Luke 2 discontinued?!

    Read it on here and also on Facebook that the Luke 2 has been discontinued with immediate effect! Anyone got more information? My dealer got me prices for a BFR version last month and I held off as there was rumours of a Luke 25th at NAMM (which hasn’t appeared) but I’m now reading that I can’t order one now as they were discontinued with immediate effect last week?! They’re still on the website so hoping this is just crossed wires? I’ve had a Luke 2 and a Luke 3 PDN but the 2 was by far my preferred version. Just couldn’t get in with the Transition’s voicing so was going back to a Luke 2 and the BFR in particular.

    I tried looking for one but didn’t find any for sale. I found a Luke 3 in the finishbut the Wood was flamed maple, and not quilted.

    I did find one on EBay but the seller is now asking 4500 and then I’d have to pay 25% tax on top, so 6000, equivalent to $8000!!! Looks like the ones left out there just went up in value massively!

    Shame. That's stunning.

    Hold the press. There’s a Blueberry flame top in the UK! Though the description is a bit confused so need to confirm it’s a Luke 2. Crossing fingers! Would rather have a quilt but as it’s 5000 cheapervthan the quilt in Japan, I’m feeling less fussy!!!

    I used to be a quilt only type of person but nowadays I like flame just as much and especially on a Luke. Good Luck in snagging it!

    Damn. It's pre sold! The hunt goes on. I guess whatever Luke 2s are left in the pipeline are the last of their kind.

    OK, this is confusing. According to Music Man in the UK (Strings and Things?), the order window is still open? Can anyone confirm this?!

If the order window is still open, might still be the chance to get the order I want.

    The Luke 2 is still on the EBMM web site, both the standard and BFR versions. Doesn’t look to be discontinued.
