Don't take this as gospel yet, but as I placed a special order for a Spanish Copper Metallic bass on Friday, my G&L guy offhandedly told me that he's planning to stop offering Spanish Copper Metallic in 2018. They're still accepting orders for it now, and they haven't officially said anything about this. But if you've been on the fence about getting something going in Spanish Copper Metallic... well, you might want to get it while you still can. Just a heads up. And apologies in advance if they get flooded with orders for it in December and then decide to keep it as an option in 2018.
