    Only $199.99!
    (I'm just guessing, but I think a case will be extra.)

    This is not a bad move. There is a significant market for expensive pens.

    Ugh, that is an outrageous price. I can spend $50 more and buy a whole neck.

    If that happens, just imagine how many "My Squier writes better than my Fender" posts we'll see.

    I’m just waiting to see if they’re going to be reviewed by Nick Shabazz.

    They don’t appear to be overtly tactical or stabby.
    (That reference will be appreciated by people who follow EDC reviewers.)

    I was looking at their site that is the price for one and it appears to be a ballpoint, not a fountain.

    I see they've adopted the Gibson pricing model.

    Why for that price you could buy a .... Gibson wall clock?
