    I hated how the USAs didn't have a top to cover the neck-thru "stripe" so actually think this looks better. If they did a USA production version like this I would probably be in.

    Still no new 6 string hardtail Dinky/soloist shapes. Might have to try a maple board.

    I don't believe it's binding just the light, and of course it's a super strat it's Charvel :lol:

    I love superstrats, but honestly I wouldn't buy anything similar to a Schecter Hellraiser/Esp Horizon/Jackson SLAT anymore. I've become more addicted to retro styled Superstrats lately

    Dammit! I'm happy to see two new finishes for the Juggernaut Pro ht6 and ht7, but come on... why gloss? That gloss black looks like a $300 JS series Juggernaut. Jackson has really been screwing up these Pro series IMO. I don't mean any disrespect,, it's just my opinion.

    its actually less spectrum, more jeff beck soloist. The spectrum was to be jeff beck esque but had a reverse headstock with no binding and was bolt on, with 22 frets instead of 24. this seems to be a more true version, minus the pickups and body wood, not that they were going to use poplar these days anyway as nobody seems to remember that 90% of USA Jacksons before the mid 90s were poplar.

    And I just got the BC Rich Stealth 7 lol. Is it time to get a Warrior? The Davidson is super appealing but that 6 string looks super classy.

    IIRC as they seem to have taken them down the top was a charcoal monarch pro series and the other two were pro series sl2's one of course being a ht.
