Sad but unsurprising. It's the old guitarist conservatism syndrome again. I've played Conway's Relish. It's everything you think you'd want on paper; versatile, adaptable, intelligently designed using 60 years of history and experience.. a very smart piece of engineering and a superb tool. What more could a thinking guitarist want?

A Strat or a Les Paul is unfortunately the answer.

They probably should've stick to the alternative material niche instead of trying to branch into wooden guitars. Guys like Aristides and EGC are still thriving.

Or maybe being a wood/alternative material hybrid it appealed to neither crowds?
Amps:
Soldano SLO100 x2 | Wizard MC1 & MC2 | Diezel Herbert
Fryette Pittbull CL | Marshall 2203KK | Krank Rev 50 | Mesa Mark 2A

Rack stuff:
VHT/Fryette GP3, GP/DI & 2/90/2 | Peters FSM/Chimera
Verellen Meatsmoke | Synergy SYN1 | Mesa Studio

I laughed at Pope Brian only getting 1/3 the votes that Liz Gunn got!

Any offers on a Relish guitar will be considered, except from JB.

I think you're confusing yourself with Molly.

I’ve spent an embarrassing portion of disposable (read not really disposable) income on guitars the past year.
2024 I’m going to work on not feeling embarrassed

You have not disposed of your not disposable income. Satisfaction is the appropriate feeling for hard earned money well invested.
