Now go to page 7 / post #99 for the official information!!!
After seeing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPLAkehj8d8&feature=feedu
I thought it would a good timing to organise a group buy (I was already planing on getting a t50rp).
I contacted smeggy to see if I'd be interested in a group buy discout and the answer was yes. So the discount would be around 100$ (so they'd cost around 450) if we get 10 to 15 buyers to commit... But we'd have to pick a single wood and finition for this to be possible so you'd trade some customization off (althought they all look great IMO), that would be kind of a special edition HF if you want to see it that way.
Also, since I have something like 30 posts on this forum I think it would be cool if someone else (with a reputation here ideally) would take care of the financial part or give advices on how to proceed (cause I would certainly not give nearly 500 box to a stranger coming out of nowhere).
So yeah, post a reply if you're interested.
Edit: We don't have to agree on a specific wood finnaly, on page 4 smeggy enumerates a list of wood it will probably be possible to choose from.
Edit 2: The results so far:
People interested, if you're not anymore PM me
1) Radio_Head [amboyna burl if you have it (I'd pay the extra cost on it), otherwise Koa or quilted maple. + 02 pads]
6) Failed Engineer
10) Pale Rider
Most of the woods choices:
East indian, bolivian, honduran rosewood
maple, hard, curly, spalted and quilted
You can choose the pads as you wish.
Here's a form to give an idea to smeggy to what he'll have to deal with: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dEFzWjhzdlNlN0gyZDJ5ZzJhUHFJNnc6MQ
