Re: i'm over it...
This, IMO, is the perfect example of player guitar vs collector's item. Want a player BD replica? Buy a JS1000 or a JS100 and a set of metallic sharpies. The SWTA? Well, I think it's cool that they're making a "player" version on a JS100, but also consider that they got to pay Marvel some cash for the Surfer and JOE some cash because its his sig. Maybe they felt it wouldn't be cost effective to make a JS1000 a player. Who knows?
Honestly, I'm not surprised that limited editions cost lots of money. That's the nature of that market. I've always wanted an LNG guitar, though not necessarily a Jem. Them's the breaks.
Someone here made a KILLER Donnie in their custom shop, probably for much less than it would have cost to locate and buy the real McCoy.
