Same here. Tried two different browsers on my computer. Interestingly on my phone I not only see the colored wire option for the fabric, but there are 2 HyVibe options for the pickup on the phone, but only 1 on the desktop.

I have a number of websites I use or buy from that from time to time seem to change. Choice buttons disappear or other. Sometimes, maddeningly, just at the final purchase--I'm stymied by something missing or it's something I can see but it just doesn't function when I click.

Switching to a more updated or different type of browser usually shows me everything was fine and the problem was at my end. Online sites are constantly evolving and updating and equally updated browsers are necessary to keep up.

For purchases, I'm usually covered switching among Firefox, Safari, or one of the Chrome clones.

Looking at the X10 and X20 builders with a Windows 10 laptop and Firefox now, I only see Standard and Vibrant. Also when I look at the page code that I can access.

Sometimes browsers show an old version of a page that you have visited before.

I have my browser (Firefox) set to clear all cache and cookies when I close it. So I am quite sure mine doesn't.

I still don't see those options though.

I'm not shopping personally, but I checked with two browsers and didn't see the wire option either.

IMO, it's a question you could get quickly resolved just writing Emerald directly. Good luck.

I just did and this was Emerald's reply:

We have stopped offering the coloured thread carbon as we had supply issues with that material causing delays on builds.
The HyVibe we have decided to offer with the Standard bridge only as well as it is the best option for the best results for the HyVibe.
So there you have it. Those colored fiber guitars still in stock may well be the last ones.

Thanks for that mountainmaster!

Hopefully the supply issues will be resolved whenever the world moves back towards "normal".

The colored carbon thread is/was a subtle, yet classy option.
