    Pretty sure this is just the shape he designed/endorses. As you guys can see, his name isn't plastered all over the place (very un-dean like).

    Eh, not enough guitarists died this last year. If the world really does end in 2012 though, next year's model line should be ridiculous! :lol:

    Why is this so hard to figure out?

    Dean added the Modifier line. Wayne has a custom-ish version of a modifier. It's 6 string. Wayne plays 6 string guitars. I doubt he'd ever have any desire to even get a 7. It doesn't even look like they're offering his version of the modifier as a sig. It's just a new line of MLs that includes an 8 string... that looks ugly as sin.

    The original ML shape is fantastic, but the Baby MLs and the Modifier are just hideous. Bevels and carved tops don't work with the ML shape, IMO.

    The string spacing looks so close :scratch: they probably could have used 707s and saved a few bucks :lol:

    Always glad to see more ERGs on the market, but not crazy about this one :2c:

    You could use the headstock to row across the English Channel.

    Neck dive is a possibility, however, regular ML's have very little neck dive, its close to balanced than people are making it sound.

    this guitar has joined the ever swelling ranks of 8 string black guitars with a 4+4 headstock that I absolutely hate the look of.

    There was a crap ton of neck dive in the video of Wayne playing the 6 string version.

    Yeah. They put out a lot of simple, yet catchy stuff. Stuff that, surprise, doesn't have a expiration date. They're far from one of my favorite bands, but I'll still rock the shit out of their music.

    I guess Dean has always felt a little cheesy to me. I have played one of the Dime models and it was actually pretty nice, easy player. Still, mega cheese. Then, Static X is right there with the Creeds and 3 Doors Downs of the world when it comes to cheese. So you see, this is far too much cheese. Something terrible is going to happen. A cheesy black hole is going to swallow us all.

    The difference being that Static-X is tasty industrial metal cheese. They know it's cheese, and they have fun with it. I like them. Creed is obnoxious more often than not (though they're certainly far from the worst out there these days), and Three Doors Down is just an incredibly mediocre band that got lucky.

    If Static-X is cheese, it's EZ-Cheez. It's devoid of any nutritional value, and it's not worth eating very often, but sometimes it's just a damn tasty treat that hits the spot.

    Static Shock?

    :lol:

    I think the guitar is pretty horrendous looking, but at least it's something different. :shrug:

    That is the biggest Electric I've seen in a long time.

    Static-X hasn't been together since 2009, Wayne has his own solo project...

    Which is more or less the same thing and he plays mostly Static-X material live. I had the same reaction but didn't want to get into the semantics of that, rather than discuss this absolutely hideous guitar. :hbang:
