    Probably $900 - $1000, like it's always been.

    That 8 string Eclipse may be my next purchase if I can get an Evertune saddle drilled out to take at least an 85 gauge string. I think the ET is capped at something a 74 and combined with the 26.5" scale length, that would be ridiculously loose.

    You can get husks from places like The StratoSphere. I did. Binding is for Schecters.

    They're rough. Often very rough, but the meat of them is solid. For the price, around $450 used, after a good once over by a competent tech, they're rock solid.

    Still, nowhere close to what Zomb13 wanted. I probably would have gone with an Agile. :lol:

    One of my dealers shot me some pics of the new E-IIs for 2018...

    While I cannot post pics, All I had to saw when I saw them was "DAMN!" They look pretty darn nice, people here will be very pleased.

    Look at what Zado Posted, pretty much along those lines lol. Lots of Horizons and M-IIs, even 7 strings.

    Those wild lads. They’ve finally gone and done it. Sevenstrings with flat mount bridges and reversed Head stocks. Madness.


    ...But seriously fucking finally. But if I buy anything this year it’ll be the Davidson sig. I need that more.

    Yeah, I should have specified, any new shapes. I figured they might update some existing ones. That one new shape is damn hideous.

    Oh shit!!
    I've been waiting for something to bridge the gap between the HIII and the Formula. Is this it?? Hmm. I really, really, really wish it was arch top instead of bevels. It's kind of like if ESP read my mind but then ran it by Kiesel first. I'm half "what can I sell" and half "not close enough."

    That purple translates to about $2100 USD. I fear we have a price hike coming.
