YES! More than yes. Yes times two, at the very least.

I love the SLS headstock, I love carved top superstrats, and seeing as how this won't have EMG helipads in it, I'm quite stoked. And I'm also happy they went without the sharkfin inlays

I'll see if I can justify getting a dual humbucker guitar (I'm an HSS guy) but this sure as hell seems to fit me better than any production 7-string so far.

My bet is this is based on the MIJ SLAT-7, and will cost about 10 - 15% more than those. It doesn't make sense to release it as a USA model and sell ten of them... Unless they do both, like ESP does with some sigs or Ibanez does with the MTM's.

I'll bet there's a 100 piece USA small run, then a production MIJ version after that. That's what I'm sure the Ellefson bass will be.

It quit selling because they doubled the price on the damn thing. There's no reason in the universe that the COW (6 or 7) should cost more than a DK2. It's got cheaper hardware (TOM bridge, 1 pickup, 1 knob) and takes significantly less labor to produce (no binding, no inlays, no trem route, 1 pickup route, 1 pot to install). Its original price of ~$600 was perfect. Bring it down to 699 with case just like a DK2 and people might actually buy it - I know I'd be interested in a Red Blue Pearl 6 or 7.

He did have a signature design, but when Ibanez took the unique elements of Chris's RGA's, it kinda made giving him a signature a useless venture because the production models were close enough.
Though, since he was a signed endorsee, everything he "designs" for Ibanez is their property, not his. Unless he pulled an EVH, but seeing as there's no litigation, I'm incline to believe that didn't happen. If he wanted the features of his customs to remain unique to his he should have said/signed something from the get go.

Sounds like someone didn't read their contract and is a little ticked about it after the fact.

What I find suspect is that he didn't really have all these "problems" with Ibanez until he started working with Jackson and they offered him a couple of sigs.

The same goes for the whole "using name without permission". Once again, Ibanez had been doing it as early as 08'/09' and he certainly didn't have a problem with it then. Also once again, if Ibanez was "wrong" in doing so, then there would be some form of litigation, whether it be monetary or simply Ibanez not being allowed to distribute materials via cease and desist.

Like I said, this is reading much more like Chris just really wanted something that Ibanez was not quite ready to let him have. As such he decided to move on, which I think any of us would do in the same situation, especially if there is another company offering exactly what you want. The whole "Ibanez did this" and "Ibanez did that" just seems like a thinly veiled ".... you", and more of an "excuse" to move on than a solid, founded reason. I guess saying "yeah, I wanted more" would have been frowned upon by some.

Either way, I'm happy to see a potentially killer spec'd, quality Jackson 7 hit the market after that highly disappointing (to me anyway) SLAT3-7.

I really dig Jackson guitars, especially the Dinky, Soloist, and King V, always have, and I'm really looking forward to this guitar to see what it has to offer. The "offset body" is intriguing to me. It's sounding like it's going to be a cross between an RGA, Saber, and Soloist...........which is ....ing awesome. Chris has some really good taste in guitars, so I know it's going to look hot.

I think it's safe to assume Jackson showed him a wad of dough... Everything else is smoke and mirrors. I'd switch, too.

It'd look strange with a passive bridge humbucker, not to mention damage the resale value immensely.

A very good chance Jackson is willing to shell out the $$ and make him a signature model when Ibanez wasn't.

He wanted a sig, but Ibanez said no and gave him customs instead, then they end up releasing something pretty similar to what he wanted in a sig anyway. That kinda says 'yeah we like your ideas but we don't want your name attached to it'. I'd be kinda annoyed if I were someone as talented as Broderick with the reputation to boot. If they think it would sell as a standalone guitar, whats the big deal about having his name on tiny letters on the headstock? Besides, any issues he did have he would've had to have kept to himself being under contract, you don't 'shit where you eat'.
