    I don't see his model listed there anymore. Does this mean he will go back to Fender?! Or does it mean that Music Man will grab him? I need to know!!

    No one is likely to know until, and one suspects at this point it might actually be if, someone signs him to an endorsement deal.

    Peavey closed their USA custom guitar shop. All guitar manufacture is now overseas, AFAIK. The omniac and any other USA models are no longer available.

    Really? Wow. That's surprising - when did they shut it down? This video was from 2008.

    I know LsL is making a very interesting JD model now. It isn't on their website, but look at their dealer listings and a few dealers are taking orders and listing specs.

    It does seem like the same basic recipe for whichever Company he goes with. He sure is a great player!

    Some discussion of it here. Apparently, peavey is calling it a 'hiatus'. When tv shows go on hiatus they usually don't come back. I hope that is not the case. I think the USA guitar shop closed last year. Maybe if the us economy picks up again, peavey will start it up again.

    God forbid Jerry Donahue would get tired of playing the same old guitar (no matter how good it is). I don't even play the same guitar in one night.
