    The SDX especially looks like it's ripe for the hot-rodding market. Restricting it to Europe only seems a bit odd to me.

    Edit: Listening to the video again, it looks like the Phobia is only going to be limited to Europe.

    I don't really get the point of a signature guitar without the pickups the artist use but, well...
    The Mille is nice.

    Haha, you said it CapinCripes! Awesome to see him get the recognition he deserves.

    Pleasure To Kill was the first metal tape I ever put my ears to (I was 8 or 9 at the time - maybe younger) and that was it. I knew that was what I wanted to play!

    So, I guess that I am the only one that hates Jackson headstocks reversed. The heavy offset of that headstock just doesn't translate backward for me. Love the shape, just not reversed.

    No, you're not the only one, I don't like Jackson's headstock reversed either. I also dislike the non-recessed Floyd's.

    I like the reverse headstock on some guitars. They can be a nice change up. But on some guitars they look goofy. Mille's V looks decent with it.

    Non-recessed floyd's are a deal breaker for me. They are the main reason I never bought any of the Charvel Pro-Mods(besides the hardtail wildcard)

    Funny, they're a deal-maker for me, but I'm old. It's nice to see them, though, since there are a million guitars with recessed Floyds out there...

    I'm fairly old too, my main guitar is a Charvel Model 5FX which does have a top mount Floyd, but it does have a pull up route. I just feel limited with them.

    The Adrian Smith & the Phobia will both apparently be £430 UK RRP. So would be surprised if you pay more than £380 for it

    I love the Adrian Smith Jackson, and this one, swapping out the floyd special for an OFR and the pick ups and thats a hell of a guitar for the money....
