    New member | MN Limited Edition?? what is it?

    New member in the forum

    Today I pulled the trigger on a Silhouette Special in emerald green.
    I learned to play guitar back in 2003 on a friend's Silhouette special, unfortunately I had to stop and well I haven't played guitar for like 10 years now. Just restarted...ohh boy it is hard.
    Came across Reverb.com and it was instant GAS with all the memories of the Silhouette coming to mind.

    Anyway, back to topic, bought what is called a Silhouette Special HSS emerald green sparkle MN Limited Edition, and I can't find any info on this "limited edition" thing... is there anything different or is it just the color?

    kind regards
    Joao

    I think it might be from the yearly PDN runs - Premier Dealer Network - which were exclusive to certain shops. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong

    Feel like music man should have a record of this kind of stuff on their website instead of only the new gear, otherwise all info will be lost.

    It's a standard Silhouette Special with a limited edition color, released in 2013. The other sparkle color that year was cardinal red.

    Nice man, run it when you get it, it'll give you a DOB and the build code.

    That PDN run was spot on. The Silo Special looks amazing! Excellent find! I would kill for a Silhouette (non-Special) in that spec!

    Oh man, I had forgotten about those two colors. I remember them being popular on the forum after they were announced. Those were the 2nd and 3rd PDN runs that came out after the True Gold Lukes, right?

    I had my eye on one a while ago, but it was way too much.

    Thanks guys, I'll post pictures once it arrives.

    I'll be honest, not a big fan of green (the pictures on the add aren't the best probably), hopefully it will look much better in person, but the price was good for the "excellent" condition reported by the seller.

    That photo makes it look pretty dull. Under the right lights it is STUNNING!
