    New Majesty limited- store exclusivity?

    I knew there was PDN guitars, but this is the first time I see a limited edition available to a shop only.

    That's quite a pretty finish! Yes, EBMM periodically do special runs with dealers, either with a special finish, or unique electronics/switching capabilities, different woods, etc. I could not list them all, but know there have been others in the past.

    Hunter Hayes Cutlass in Lake Tahoe Blue
    Valentine BFR in Three-tone Burst
    Luke 3 HH in Starry Night
    Valentine in Trans Maroon

    Willcutt has done some exclusive runs with several manufacturers over the past year or so as an anniversary celebration. There was a Willcutt-exclusive Axis a few months ago. I'm pretty sure I remember seeing them post a PRS and maybe another one or two manufacturers as well. They've all been some variation of brown and not really to my taste, so I haven't kept up with them.

    A lot of companies do dealer-exclusive runs, and EBMM has done several that I can recall over the years.
    My stuff:
    2007 Axis Pacific Blue Burst (9/25/07)
    2016 Axis SS Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    2016 Axis SS Semi-Hollow Trans Teal one-off (6/8/16)
    2018 Axis BFR Steel Blue No. 45 (9/18/18)
    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

    Correct, although in the past most of the EBMM exclusive runs were primarily for international distributors and the big national chain here in the USA. Kanda Shokai (Japan, numerous Luke and JP exclusive runs), Mogar Music (Italy, special Axis run), are two that jump to the front of my memory. This makes sense from a manufacturing perspective because a distributor (or national chain) typically has a greater customer base than individual dealers, and both the manufacturer and distributor want to sell out. Very small single-piece runs can be cost-prohibitive for both the manufacturer and independent retailer, and large quantities for an independent dealer might sit on shelves and hamper cash flow.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    That would be nice, I had thought about it last year for our 65th Anniversary but never took it beyond the thought process. I'll cross my fingers and keep waiting for the stars to align!

    Willcutt guitars has done that with a lot of makers. I've also seen places like Dave's Guitars in Wisconsin and Sweetwater Manage it with Fender. In the end, if a major dealer wants something special for themselves, I don't begrudge them that.

    Looks like they are going quickly:

    Ernie Ball Music Man Willcutt 50th Anniversary
    2007 Stingray 5 HS Cherry Burst / Maple FB / 3 Band EQ / Ceramic Pickups
    2012 Stingray 5 H Pearl Blue / Rosewood FB / 3 Band EQ/ AlNiCo Pickup
    2012 Steve Morse Morse Blueburst / Rosewood FB
    2012 Luke III SSH Vintage Sunburst / Rosewood Neck
