    Could be just simple lack of demand for the Floyd models. I remember a thread from early 2018 where there were some complaints about the Luke 2 being discontinued; BP had AJ run the numbers and only *5* had been ordered in the previous 12 months. The L3 had put it out of business.

    I imagine that is correct - if no one is ordering them with trems and Steve doesn't play them any more then there is no reason to keep the trem option available.

    I do like both the new colors - particularly the blueburst on the Y2D.

    I do find it interesting that these are only through the Vault - unless this is a COVID-restrictions-related move and they will be back in normal production either later this year or next year.

    I can't say I come across a lot of Morses/Y2Ds with Floyds.

    I read that offering on the website until I found that the floating Floyd was being offered.
    Also that pic where he is onstage holding the guitar behind his back. It was on the front page of his website for years. That guitar is a Floyd where he is playing "Perfect Strangers". He is facing the guitars to the amps to force feedback.
    That was my favorite guitar sound of the show. that song is really high for my favorite Deep Purple song too.

    Anyone notice that the standard maple necks were changed to roasted after the initial announcement? That makes these much more attractive.

    Huh! And stainless steel frets.

    (Which makes more sense, b/c that's what Steve is using these days, right?)

    OH DANG!!! Good luck with it! I'm tapped out for a while, as I've got uh... 5K in amps on order. Apparently forever because they can't get transformers.
