The Dargie green was the exact colour I'd want in a Luke, but it was not available. But there is always hope! Keep your eyes on the For Sale thread. Rob's right, quite a few Dargies have moved around...including one that came to me:

    Thanks. I like to take photo's outside because the inside of our house is a constant MESS!!!

    Dargies are the coolest!!!! I love how the colour changes slightly in different light conditions.

    For me, it's more of a 'Green Apple' than Martini Olive Green. It seems to have that gold undercoat - a perfect twin to Candy Apple Red. It's a much better color in person than in pics...mine's never going anywhere.

    For the record guys, the Dargie wasn't forum exclusive. It was available to anyone that knew it existed within that short window when orders were being taken.

    Granted, it was mostly forumites.. but I believe they showed the proto Dargie Sterling HS at NAMM.. so that exposed the Dargie concept to the 'world'.

    The whole concept was just fun, I'm glad I got my brain out of my back pocket after missing the initial order window. When BP reopened the order window for a short time, I pulled the trigger on the Bongo 4H. Sweet. Oh, it's never going anywhere, either. But then, I tend to keep all my stuff.

    edit: I also don't know that anyone can recite an exact count with confidence. There was the initial order count, but then some were made for artists and other connected folks. So, I don't know for sure that we've ever seen a final count or breakdown. Not that I'm dogging Scott to provide one.

    Rob, are you referring to the pics we saw from the back where John was clearly playing a Dargie with a painted neck?

    ^^ I do remember seeing that. Was that a BFR? Did it end up with a forumite?

    I just assumed he meant John. Maybe not? Let's ask Ernie...he knows where every Petrucci is.

    I don't see how the Dargies could have been exclusively for the forum if I happened to have found a brand new Stingray at the Guitar Center last summer.
    Vintage Sunburst Silhouette Special, '06; 20th Anniversary Silhouette, '06; Honeyburst Sterling '00

    I stepped upon the platform, the man gave me the news
    He said "You must be joking son, where did you get those shoes?"
