    There is a big difference : I know that I will change my phone every 3 or 4 years, because the technology evolves (and the battery dies ...).
    But when I buy a guitar (especially an expensive one), I hope to play it till my dying day (not soon I hope !).

    I will never buy a guitar that I cannot fix myself with a reasonable amount of efforts.
    The GC (or the Majesty) will be unfixable in 20 years.

    I couldn't agree more.
    That' s why the Reflex / 25th Anniversary should pass the test of time.

    I still remember BP saying that with people like me we would still drive 2CV.

    As much as I love the GC concept I would freak out not being able to manage the pickup routing in 20 years cause the website s no longer supported or all USB are replaced with USB C. A guitar is not a computer and should last longer.

    But I love my 25th anniversary, no battery, no IC

    Simplicity is a good thing. I was tempted to sell my JP6, which has no options whatsoever, but I think I might keep it for its simplicity.

    I just picked one up on Reverb, hoping these necks aren’t too different than my Axis guitars.

    Well, I guess a majesty in 20 years would be repaired like any guitars, rip the guts out, put new guts, play

    You'll definitely love it! From what I recall, they're pretty much the same neck but wider in the right spots.

    Depending on how nice this is, I may have to move a few more EBMM guitars.

    I think we're already almost there with lack of support on the web app?

    However, I'd still buy one, just don't overpay for it, because there's a good chance you're going to have to replace some of the electronics someday. It will still be a reflex with a piezo and a lot of switches to give you options.

    Haha. I haven't posted much in recent years. Aside from that, there was way more of a post count. Some years back I didn't have a Music Man, posted a zillion questions about them, blah blah blah.... Then it became a thing where I verbally said (or someone said) that I needed to get a damn Music Man before I hit 10,000 posts.
    I posted a lot and that became a problem. So I was deleting old posts, and made alternate profile personalities to avoid the 10,000. lol. Good times.
    So in truth, I should probably have about 14,000-15,000.
