The BFRs are really meant for a small group of fans, and the 250 they make every couple of months for those runs probably aren't much in terms of revenue for them, they're probably helping get more people to buy the regular versions.While I am a EBMM fan this BFR offering does anything for me, especially the Cutlass offering. I do agree with the comments on price, way too high. EBMM has been pricing themselves out of the market recently.
When the Stingray and Cutlass hit the market 5/6 years ago they were priced very affordable but have been climbing rapidly up and the BFR's can be cool though always over priced
I have two pre-2018 StingRays (non-RS) that I got used. I'd like one of the roasted maple ones to swap out for one of the regular ones I have (the RS was the first one I played and was blown away by playability, the satin finish on the pre-RS necks is still really good).
I don't know if they're really pricing themselves out, especially in a recent sense. Since everybody is shelling out massive cash for instruments so far this year, they've probably had a record year. I really want both the Mike Herrera MxPx StingRay bass and the Stephen Egerton StingRay guitar, but they're sort of limited runs of things I already have and are $2,500. I'm not going to end up with either, as I've never paid more than $1,200 for an instrument.
