    Used Luke 3 or brand new SBMM Luke 100D...what say you?

    Hi guys, I haven't given myself a birthday present yet (Jan 24) so I go to Pete's website and he has a USED Olive Gold HH Luke 3 for $1,150.00. Now, Brian has tempted us with the new SBMM LK100D, which I figure would run about $700ish? What would you do? I already asked Jesus and he told me to ask you guys. LOL.

    If the $1,150 isn't a problem, go with the LIII. Where else can you get a guitar with full rosewood neck at that price..

    LIII, no doubt.

    The LK100D is like $869 Street if I remember correctly, you'd be paying less than 300 and be getting the USA version with a Rosewood Neck. I'd definitely do it.

    LIII. If you don't like it you'll sell it for almost the same amount and then you could still buy the SBMM and take your family out to dinner.

    And the all-rosewood neck is magnificently gorgeous.

    The Luke 3 is a no brainer here unless money is the issue. The SBMM guitars are fantastic, but for 300 more (in this case) the MM is the better deal.

    I have to concur here! While our new LK100D is a bad-ass axe, getting the real deal for a couple hundred bucks more...

    Also, we more than likely will not be doing the Olive Gold finish.

    The MAP on the LK100D is $869

    Well even SBMM recommends the HH AL from Pete, looks like you need to call Pete in the AM

    Funny I see this thread right now as I'm in the exact same boat, deciding between a Sterling or used MM Luke. Even looked at that same Olive Gold guitar and just not sure that finish is for me. If it was I would've snatched it up already, my suggestion would be to buy it before I change my mind.

    I've missed a few ebay deals waiting to see what Sterling was going to bring to the table, but I don't think it's to tough to find Lukes for slightly more than that. Usually a hard case included. we'll see how well my patience holds up!

    Pete I emailed to info@dubaldomusic.com but I didn't get a response. Is it still available? this wa email:

    Hi my name is Edgar and I’m really interested in the Luke 3 you have for $1,150. First:

    1. How are the frets?

    2. Is the neck straight?

    3. Is it set up to original Luke specs?

    4. How much is shipping to 32714?

    I don't see it on your website anymore????

    Rock on!
