    Really, they are making a signature guitar? I'm not too big into sigs, but if it means having a reasonably priced Warrior 7 on the market, I'm all for it.

    It's a limited run of fourteen USA custom shop seven string warriors that are an exact copy of Dave's blacken ashed warrior posted above. No budget seven string warriors, baller only versions

    Ah, I see. Not that I don't want more baller Warriors out there, but we can already get a baller 7 string Warrior just by ordering a custom job. It seems a shame that the companies who own bad-ass shapes like that won't attempt a budget 7.

    I'd like to know about this, too. Haven't seen anything from Jackson, only one ad on Reverb of a shop trying to sell a preorder.

    I would suspect somewhere around that ballpark of 4.5-5k is what price he got. I would be surprised if they could order one since only 14 are being made with 9 going to the US market. I would think all 9 are already claimed by dealers already.

    Honestly I like more the white version with black bevels that Dave had in the No Funeral vid.
    I know it was a 6 but I'd love a 7 version of that.

    BUMP.
    So he's releasing a pro series of his signature! It seems pretty close to the custom shop but if you saw a custom for sale do you reckin it'd be worth the price difference to buy that instead of the pro???

    It’s one heck of a price difference.

    One's a production import and the other is a handmade custom by Mike Shannon. I doubt many people other than Dave have played both and can compare them.

    The price difference is going to be at least 2K used and maybe 3-4K if you can find them new (they only made 14 or 15 units). I paid somewhere between $3800-3900 for mine when the build was first announced. What you get with the USA custom isn't going to be that different spec-wise, but it will be masterbuilt by Jackson's best builder, Mike Shannon, and it's an exact copy of Dave's personal guitar.

    If you're just looking for a seven-string warrior with a Floyd and Dave's pickups, go for the pro model. My friend picked up an Indo pro soloist 7 recently and the QC was pretty good for an import.

    If you want a top-shelf custom and can justify the huge price tag, go for it. I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you wanted a 7-string warrior all along. You just have to convince yourself that the extra 2-4K was worth it.

    For anyone that is interested Capital Guitars now has a few of the Pro Series in stock. Hopefully this means that mine will be showing up at Sweetwater soon.
