    The 2019 models won't go on the website until they go on sale - depending on the model that will be April or May. The older models will go off the website when the new ones go on. But from the 2019 model info it does look like they are streamlining - maybe combining the original Majesty and the Monarchy model into a single offering?

    Correct, the "monarchy" name and colors are going away. The various incarnations of the Majesty will now be known collectively as "Majesty" instead of 3 different types called Majesty, Artisan Majesty, or Monarchy Majesty.

    The 2019 models will be fully glossed (aside from the Stealth), have new DiMarzio pickups, and have new inlay material.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    so pete, does that mean that music man will still accept new orders for the monarchy before april 2019?

    I wouldn't have expected that they would discontinue the Monarchy. I had the feeling that it was quite the selling model.

    So, are the Artisans going bye bye, as well? I think the Marrone is still my fav finish, and JP played it for quite a while on the road. All in all, glad they are consolidating all the models - there were just WAY too many.

    Per Pete's post they aren't discontinuing the Monarchy and Artisan models, just the names and having them as separate models - all 3 will exist (with new colors at least for the former "Monarchy" models) but just under the single name "Majesty".

    Original Majesty, Artisan Majesty and Monarchy Majesty finish options are all discontinued unfortunately. The new line is comprised of 6 new finishes (Dark Roast, Enchanted Forest, Blue Honu, Red Sunrise, Kinetic Blue, Stealth Black), and is now simply called the 'Majesty'.

    Have you seen all of the new finishes yet? I've only seen the one in the email/blog post about the 2019s (which looks kind of like an Artisan finish) and one photo from NAMM that was kind of blue-green (so it might have been the blue honu finish - which looked a lot like a Monarchy in a new color).

    Are they going to all have gloss neck? If so, that's a bummer.

    High-gloss all the way, no more satin finish (exception being the Stealth Black Majesty, and the JP15).
