    It is called "the ugly dutchess" - famous painting... not trolling by any means.

    That neck and headstock look fantastic, I can't wait for more roasted maple. Thank you CITES for getting rid of the plauge of endless rosewood!

    I watched the Polyphia clinic show earlier this afternoon and I was lucky enough to ask Tim and Scott a question about the prototype RGs during the Q&A, although they didn't bring them as they only brought their RG655Ms. They said that they don't have a name yet and the final designs should be revealed at NAMM 2018, and they like the non-locking tremolo system and the Prestige-like necks.

    I wonder if 7 and 8 versions of this model would ever be released. Might be kind of odd. But also might be kind of cool...

    They have Luminlay dots on the top as well. Hopefully they put those in for the production line.

    Mario recently posted these on Instagram. That pickguard makes it look a lot more sexy.

    That pickguard is hideous, Looks like they finished the guitar, then had the idea of slapping that on :(
    I do like the looks of these, look very classy
    Would love a triple single coil version :yum::yum:

    Maybe it's just the lavender finish, it doesn't seem to blend well with the other colors. If it were seafoam green, I'd absolutely love it even more (blame my Tom Delonge Fender Strat obsession for that).

    Ehh. Looks a bit oddly shaped with the pickguard. Also it looks like that trem isn't recessed/floating.

    def looks better, I think its jsut the photo and the angle of it, the lavender one kinda looks like its edges are too rounded, so it looks a bit weird. Plus with that color it kinda gives me a Daisy rock vibe lol like someone its tryign too hard to make a "girl guitar" but without being too similar to a Fender.

    Having say that I love the Lavender color for the same reason :D

    My only complain is that I dont like the brown color of the mapple roasted. It would be awesome if it were dark, like if it was a whole rosewood neck kinda thing. But its too light "brown" to me. Works with a white body, but once you add colors to the body paint then its jsut doesnt work at all for me.

    Im one of those guys who would never ever wear a pair of brown shoes/belt because of the same reason. I dont care how many ppl say to me "brown goes with every color", nope, just nope, it does not

    Ok I have to admit, that looks a lot better
    Might be the combination of "lavender" body, Pearloid Pg and the black electronics
