Not really, it was just that SP went out of business before the impulse could sell very well, remember it was only out for a few months before SP declared bankruptcy.
SP's bankruptcy was due more to choosing the wrong bank than to poor sales.
However, that was back in 2009, and Kee producing a 2009 marker(which I don't think the JT imp is as nice as the 09 imp) in 2013 and charging the same price isn't a way to produce sales.
Though, the consumer is a dumb and predictable creature, simply by being $1,000 people will assume it is good and buy it en masse.
