    No info that I can find, outside of speculation. But his guitars no longer have prices, so they’re probably being discontinued.

    Hmm.....Wonder where he'll go next?
    ----------------------


    Rob picks up the phone, post-haste. Barely able to contain himself, he dials the numbers; the pit in his stomach is growing as each ring seems to echo off in his mind endlessly... At last! Someone picks up.....

    Jeff : "Hello?"

    Chapman: "GRRRRREEETINGS I'M ROB CHAP---"

    Jeff hangs up the phone...

    It wouldn't be surprised if AE and their management moved him to DEAN.

    If he moved to any other company i think there wont be a reason to make a Loomis 7 because of Arch Enemy. Unless Jeff is working on his solo stuff with 7s... but thats just my guess :/ fingers crossed for a 7 tho.

    Jackson has picked up a lot of artists in the last years, ESP is also doing a lot of signature models.... we will see what will happen.

    I just looked. Schecter still follows him on Instagram, but he isn't following them. That might be more revealing than anything else. He is following a handful of other guitar companies (Jackson is among them, Dean and ESP are not not).

    In Schecter topic we've been talkin quite a lot about the matter. Nothing can be said for sure, tho afaik in most recent pics he's been playing his black JL-6.
    Maybe he hasnt joined another brand, just had a huge argue with the Ciravolo and things went down the tube.
    There are rumors spreadin, tho, but I cant personally confirm em

    You all forgot that Sharlee is with Ibanez and has production signature Iceman basses, so I doubt he would move to Dean just because Michael plays them.

    His guitar specs are pretty doable for really anyone, even Ibanez with as strict as they seem to be on their axes. Ash body, maple neck, maple board, Loomis pups. I wonder if his cross inlays are "his" or just something Schecter did for him forever. I wouldn't be sad to see the inlays go.

    I could really see him as an ESP artist.

    I think the cross inlays are something that he got from his old Hellraiser C-7, it's been used in plenty of models that have nothing to do with him.

    Even though it most likely has little to no bearing on what I will purchase in the near future personally, I would still hope he doesn't go to Dean. ESP would be a great move, if Schecter is out.

    Well, an Horizon or Soloist seem the obvious choices. But then, endorsement deals aren't really about guitars anyway.

    He has something in his sleeve! For some time being it seems. A player this good has had it coming for some time....
