Yes, the VSBL is being disco'd. No, it won't make yours more valuable.

They're not being discontinued because they're sought after. Don't expect it to be any more valuable than a VWH.

Well, if the distributors still have a lot of them unsold and they start to sell them for crap in a closeout, it will probably affect the value of it on the negative side.

Re: Discontinuing The Vsbl?

I choosed VSBL over VWH :P. But yeah alot of people don't really like the color of it but I think its probally one of the best looking jems around. And yes I agree that the VSBL will probally drop price for close out sales but not considerably.

So that will leave the mirror fronted and white models as the only jem's available - I guess it makes sense as those are similar to the models Steve Vai uses.

Seems a shame tho' - I like the blue one.

Cheers

*classy - something like the PGM90th or PGM10th

Re: Discontinuing The Vsbl?

I would love one of VSBL's. Too bad $$$$ is in short supply for me. And I still need a new drumkit, a DNA, a PMC, a GMC, one each of every UV made, home theater system, kitchen remodeling, and home studio rig.
