    The St V is a cool model, but not for me shape-wise.
    Those 2018 colors though... AMAZING.

    There was a blue dawn AL SSS on Reverb not long ago. I know, not what you asked for, but it's out there.
    My stuff:

    2016 Axis Super Sport Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    2010 JP6 Mystic Dream (6/22/10)
    1989 Fender HM Strat HSS Blackstone
    2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Caribbean Night
    1995 Washburn N2 Padauk Stain
    2017 Taylor 224ce-K DLX Koa
    SBMM JP70 Trans Purpleburst
    SBMM S.U.B. SB4 Black
    A half-dozen pawn shop beaters no one cares about

    Blue Dawn has been around for awhile, and is a gorgeous finish!
    I've been asking around here for an AL with the StV electronics since that model came out, but I know it's not gonna happen (unless I mod one myself, which is entirely possible someday...could easily use the new Dimarzio Paul Gilbert mini buckers...)

    I'm very happy that the StV model is selling so well, but after trying one, found the body shape does not work for me at all.

    I had one It was lovely, but I didn't bond with the tone. I don't like AL SSS' trebly sounds, not how I enjoy my Strats I guess...
    The AL HH, though... perfect production guitar to me.

    Would the charcoal frost HH coming later in the year scratch the itch or is not sparkly enuf?

    I don't find Charcoal Frost attractive at all...
    Powder Blue is nice, though I've not seen any pictures yet.

    Oooh, a Stealth AL HH could be cool too...

    Always loved blue dawn, and I really dig the blue dawn St.V, but I think I'd like it better with the black pickguard and knobs. I need to figure out a way to get my hands on one and try it out. Any EBMM dealers in the Florida panhandle that might have a St.V? I'll be there in a few weeks.

    Now that blue dawn is offered on the St. V, I wish it would be offered on other models. I'd buy an LIII in blue dawn. Take my money, EBMM!!!

    Marty is indeed a great solution as MM doesn't plan to offer a wide range of colours for the AL.
    AL SSS BFR Pinkburst
    AL SSS Neptune Blue
    AL HH Starry Night
    AL HH Candy Apple Red
    AL MM90 Sparkle Turquoise

    hmmmm.... they changed the pups on those from the standard 3 mini buckers. Just another reason to not like it...

    Xjbepop -- Chill man, they added an additional model with HH. The original HHH is still available. Although it's not offered in Blue Dawn.

    For me it's that big honking pickguard... maybe offer a clear or no PG option???

    Yah no I’d never thought about it that might look really cool without the pick guard. Nice idea dibart77!!!! I’d love to see a prototype like that just out of curiosity.

    Bottom line is it's Annie's guitar. And like the other artist instruments, they build them to the artist's specs, not ours...
    And I'm good with that, even though we all have our personal wish lists... (that's why I have modded so many AL's to my own 'specs'...
