They are currently accepting 20 pre-orders for first run of manufacturing.

I would guess that whether or not they make any more after the first 20bdepends on how quickly the first batch sells.

I hope we can hear it unplugged in a quiet environment in the future.

This is how I would use it vs. plugged in like in the short video we saw.

I think this is a very cool instrument. I love how it sounds (at least plugged in, but then again i already know that Journey's pickups are excellent)!

However, I agree with btbliatout on the placement of the end pin jack. I realize that these classical guitars are considered crossoevers, if the guitars cannot be purchased sans electronics, movement of that jack should be considered.

The first picture shows a nylon string guitar. It looks/sounds to me like the guitar being played is a steel string

The first post page link does have a youtube link to a steel string.
But the text for that the link indicates it's purpose was just to show how the neck disassembles (since the same mechanism is used)--not a full video of just the nylon crossover model. It seems to be too new for that yet. Kramster mentioned only two exist so far.
