    NICE! Wonder how much the Davidson Sig Warrior is going to be?

    My guess is $2500-$2700? That's about what the Brodericks and the Ellefson bass were.

    Could definitely take that sig warrior for a spin. But c'mon, Jackson's been ...running the bases for a while now, to continue the analogy.

    ...I always wondered why a couple of brands have "pro" models that sorta delineate "definitely not pro".

    But I'm sure they're pretty good guitars, and pickup swaps are easy.

    I'm practically giddy for the SL7. They nailed it. Sure, full shark fins and glossy finish would have been preferred, but they're trying to get to the price point. I hope the quality is there.

    Eh, the one thing they didn't make was a regular Soloist 7. Now they do, so people that were complaining have no excuses!

    (Well, except for it not being USA...)

    I think that it will definitely eclipse the 3k mark closer to 4k. I can't find a decent used warrior under 2500..

    Original '90s Warrior or modern? I see the USA selects for less than that, though they were always the rarest shape.

    You may be right, though, I could see this being 3K.

    Personally, i HATE RR V's with a reverse headstock...just looks weird. Love the King V's with them though...

    Should have clarified, the WR1. I would have to guess if Misha's sig goes for 3-4k, this will fall somewhere in there. If it's on the low 3 end, I will be seriously considering this.

    Reverse headstock doesn't bug me, but those extra two frets do. Makes it whole thing look odd.

    It's a 7 string SL2, so, $50-100 more than one of those? MAP of $1150?

    Edit: Musician's Fiend sells them for $899, so $949-ish?
