    Got this before the beginning of the current tour, after having mucked about with the prototype for a whiile. Very very cool guitar, way more comfortable to play than the xiphos, balanced, mahogony maple and have a dactivator x + air norton combo in it

    They're going to release this come april before anyone asks :)

    Very cool guitar, am really happy with it :)

    I do like the curves way better than the xiphos, loads more comfortable to play too, in fact, just as comfy as the rg lacs I have :)

    Holy batshit crazyballs that is nice.

    How does it balance compared to the xiphos? That had quite bad balance issues for me even when I moved the strap peg.

    No balance issues at all, really light, sounds classic, plays really well, completely love it. I had issues with the xiphos horn digging into my arm, with this that is gone, just comfortable, really easy to throw around on stage and throw shapes with, brilliant basically!

    That looks awesome, congrats James! :hbang: Definitely looks more comfy to play than the Xiphos, are these going to be non-prestige models? :scratch:

    that shape is perfect for how I play sitting down, means I could have it classical position without it sliding all over the place haha. Like the new S7 prototype ;)

    Hope the tour is going well James

    Beautiful axe mate! :metal:

    How are you finding the D-Activator X? I'm planning on getting one for a guitar myself.

    I have some live shots lying about in places, will have to dig some up later :) Looks cool though, and I think the guitar just made me buy a death hoodie :D

    Very much more comfortable to play, in fact, you don't notice the horn untill you accidentally knock shit over! As for prestige, no idea, will have to see what they do when they release it, I think they're going to test the waters first, hopefully people will like it! I know I love it :)

    It is very comfy sitting down, and standing up :)

    Tour is pretty cool, still a long way to go but it's good :)

    No idea on 7string version, would be awesome though, will have to see how it does when they release the initial models

    DAX is cool, it's gort the grunt of the x2n, and that attack the dactivator has, and is a bit smoother than the dactivator, I really like it as I found the dactivators to be a little bit gritty, but the dax is best of both. I am still tempted to go off to ann x2n again, as I do love that pickup for all out metal :)

    Congrats, bro. That thing looks fucking sick! Matte finishes and Ibanez reverse headstocks make me happy in my pants.
