    Just bought myself this 2016 matte black juggernaut for my birthday. Picked it up on ebay for less than 50% of the original price. Felt risky given the price, but I couldn't be happier with it so far. Saw Periphery in SF a couple days after so it was a pretty great week. IMG_20171118_153428.jpg

    Wow that looks gorgeous! There is a similar one on reverb with the periphery inlay that i was considering buying, but I kind of like it without. Are these as playable as they look? The specs look fantastic but part of me feels like they are just a pimped out super strat, kind of expensive for what they are. If i could find an amber tiger one for a reasonable price i would own one of these things.

    You are right about the playability and also the expensiveness. There are a decent number of used ones out there now and they are well worth the $1400-1700. Once set up with proper action and strings, it feels effortless. If you play in low tunings then you will love it. I've heard good things about the pro version. If you could find a lightly used pro for $500-600 then it would be a total steal. My friend has the tiger eye ht7 and I get jealous.

    I need to invest in a better chair. Unforeseen expense.

    I've got the trans-blu HT7 Pro and it's a fantastic guitar, well finished. The stock pickups are actually half decent. Excuse the finger prints, it's been getting a workout! 20171201_115308.jpg

    That's wicked! Be interesting to see how much that would be to get into Australia after GST and shipping, shipping from the states has been a nightmare lately (it was cheaper to get mine in-store for a change!)

    I really wanted one of these and I like the 5 way switch as opposed to push pull dpdt. More guitars need to be 5 way instead of push pull for coil splitting.

    Who has time to pull up the pot while holding a pick?

    To be fair, having both would be even better if you can work the wiring out.

    I rather a 3 way switch. Feels better for me and quicker than a 5 way blade

    CONGRATS!.
    Thats the best looking model imo.
    His juggernaut set but in brushed chrome Tyger covers would be what I would do in that axe.

    Either way Damn its so hot!.

    Push / push pots are the way to go, put them in all my guitars.

    That one actually looks great. How's the neck profile? I was only able to play a US HT6, which was underwhelming. This 7 looks like an awesome beater though

    It's pretty good. Not quite ultra Ibby levels of thin but it's not far off it. It's quite narrow as well, really comfortable. I really need to get around to playing a KM MKii7 to compare, that seems to be the other guitar in this price/spec bracket. Loving the truss-rod adjuster location, easiest guitar to set up on the plant.

    What gauge strings and tuning does the HT6 come with? Photos i see it looks like the low E is really thick, yet the Jackson website support says all their 6-strings come with 9-42.

    Some stores say it comes with 9-42 and some say 11-56

    I believe it was 11-56 and drop C on both of mine. Just like the Holcomb and JBM100. I use 10-52 now on my laguna burst but the initial string tension was fine too.

    The ht6 comes with 11-56 and the ht7 is 11-64. That came right off the Jackson website.

    It should also be noted the 6er is 25.5 scale while the 7 is over 26.

    When I tried the ht7 in my local shop I found the tension a little tight for my taste.

    Thanks. I was about to order one but i'm pausing to think now.

    Do you think it'd need a new nut and/or trussrod adjustment if i put 10-46 on for standard or half-step down tuning?

    That never made sense to me, higher tuning + larger scale. You'd imagine on the 7's it'd be 10-64 to make the two guitars feel around the same on the higher strings. I had to switch my strings on my 7 when I got it since I play in standard.
