    Has anybody got any idea as to how the Broadcaster is doing sales-wise since it hit stores this year?

    In the shops I've been in, they all say it's flying out.

    Wouldn't surprise me, although it's not something I would buy. I would imagine the initial run are probably well gone by now.

    They’re selling fast from what I can see.

    My guy at the local mom and pop is supposed to call me when they get their shipment of CS models, which is supposed to include a broadcaster or two...

    I was seriously gassing for one when they first came out, but not as much now.... I’ve been enjoying my AO 50s... we’ll see if it impresses me enough... wildwood has some thin skins with roasted maple necks that look pretty tempting...

    I think it looks really cool. Quite expensive though and I'm sure that rules most people out. I haven't ever paid a thousand dollars for a guitar, let alone two thousand. I won't be getting one unless it's a few years down the road and a used one comes my way for a reasonable price.

    It's unique in its Broadcasteriness.
