    Nice, if not a big surprise, to see the Cutlass single coils in the LIII, we knew Luke had been gigging a Cutlass. My first seeing the Sabre was "nice, I don't think it will last" BUT I KNOW NOTHING. Hell, I said the same about the Cutlass, in fact I disliked it on first view. Not only was that a DUMB prediction but I also own one and love it!

    Those Sabres are really incredible looking, didn't see that coming. I'm pretty happy that the JP line has 'simmered down' a bit. . . 1) I don't have the money to support it right now and 2) year after year there are models that keep dropping, or different variations on a theme. I'm glad there are new finish options, and nothing trying to 'one up' or change out a different model.

    Sterling is posting their new stuff to social media - new JP150s have ebony boards, stainless frets and DiMarzio pickups

    Really shrinking the gap between the JP15 and the JP150

    I suspect they'll be shrinking the price gap a bit, too. That's got to bump the JP150 up near the $1K mark, if not over.

    That blue moonstone Sabre definitely looks interesting. Might bear further investigation.

    Glad to see the Luke is getting some love. Was expecting trapezoid inlays and bindings like the prototype Luke has used recently.

    If the maple top is the only difference between the regular and BFRs I will go for a regular. Eager to try the new high output mics which I am sure will sound great. Also, am I the only one who thinks the HSS looks weird with the chrome humbucker and black single coils?

    I do think the Sabre is intriguing, like the honeysuckle, reminds me of the 20th Silo color also like the Lukes.

    I got a chuckle out of the “Luscious” Green color name. Remember back in the day when “Luscious” posted on the forum occasionally? Hahaha!

    I see they've changed the body wood on the BFR Luke as well. Anybody have any experience with okoume wood?

    The "Maple Top" L3 says it comes with an Okoume body with a maple top vs the standard L3 that says Alder body. I get a feeling that the BFR L3 has been replaced with the "Maple Top" model. That green on the "Maple Top" looks outstanding. Im also liking the Charger Green Cutlass (Danish Pete) and the Blue Moonstone Sabre guitars right now.

    I do hope the Silhouette, Silhouette Special and AL get a little love this year. Great guitars, but as Han Solo said "I got a bad feeling about this".
