Reeeeeally not keen on that jackson shape, looks like it has been melting!
Yup, I really liked that custom, heaps better than this one looks. I think the similar spec is his "Fuck you" to Ibanez - I read a post of his on the net about why he left Ibanez for Jackson, he said that he had been pushing for his custom to be made a production model, which they refused, and then promptly started making similarly spec-ed ones for the J-Customs...
haha yeah, someone linked to his forum where they posted a japanese market ibby RGA that had pretty much every spec of his customs, he wasnt too pleased with that.
Ibanez seem rediculiously tight on their signatures. So many artists have moved onto other companies for sigs, or have simply had issues with their sigs, or had their shapes/ideas refused (Wes Borland and John Petrucci come to mind) Someone on ss.org said that Vai's contract states all 7 string sigs have to be approved by him, or he is the only 7 string artist. Apparently Munky required Vais approval for his. Could explain why Dino STILL doesnt have a signature (which would be well deserved!)
Still NO idea why so many Ibbys have rosewood; it looks/feels boring! Maple or Ebony please!
Anywho, I don't know much about the guitarist, but that new jackson shape is great. Looks VERY similar to an ESP Horizon III or Caparison Horus. I like it.
Still drooling over the Pro X Warlock and Warlock NT, haha. seriously been wanting them to release a fixed bridge neck thru warlock for years.
Oh and the Robb Flynn epiphone V looks VERY um.........yeah.
That being said, they will definitely sell!
