Quoted from sturner:
Always felt weird to me that there were people who not only wanted to have a machine, but also wanted to make sure others didn't get to. Not sure if there is a solution to it, but it seems silly to me that you'd have demand for something that they chose not to meet.
Of course they chose to meet it. It's called the PREMIUM.
It's already been said 10 times in this thread.
Premium is THE SAME as the LE. All the same features. 100%. Different art/trim. That's it. ANYONE can buy and enjoy a full featured Metallica (and AC/DC).
