    The stilletto they posted years ago was the Sh*t though, I remember it well, blue flame top (veneer probably), Floyd, HSH.

    I know all about the USA got a Sunset 7 Custom shop.

    Screw it calling it now, if they don't release a guitar I'm in love with I'm putting my order in for a Stilletto 7 custom shop. Hold me to it.

    Every time you get a Diamond Series instead of a CS, a kitten pukes hairballs.

    CS delivers this

    If they release exactly what I want I have a hard time justifying the CS. Even though I know it's just a different level.

    Anyway heres a pic of mine from a while back, it's got Fishmans in it now.

    Well motherfucker. I'll take it :lol:
    Given I'm now a Fluence addict, I'm loving the fact Fluences are being loaded on more guitars.

    They're sick right?!

    I got them and retracked all the guitars on my EP immediately.

    Now that EMG has finally started making regular humbucker sized 7 and 8 pickups, some other company has to step in and continue the hideous soapbar routed guitars...

    I don't get WHY they chose the soapbar Fishmans. They do passive-sized 7-string pickups as well.

    Jeff Kiesel can learn a thing or two about fades from those Asian guitar builders he says he's better than. ;)

    I genuinely believe that he would do a version of this with the usual "misaligned printer head" version of a "fade" and think it's genuinely the same thing. Kiesel can hardly pull off most bursts, they need to just drop the fade option, because it's never going to look good.

    That's absolutely nuts that a Korean shop can do that finish.

    Looks like longer than 26.5"? Maybe 27" like the other Elite? Or just my imagination...

    Shit I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed the scale length. The pickup spacing deeefinitely looks wider.

    I didn't notice, probably because my erection keeps getting in the way.

    Zado please tell us that sls elite is going to be a production model. If not where is that proto going cause I have money ready.

    Also can we rename the thread "Schecter 2018: the year of gas" cause that's all that is happening

    They still look so utterly cheap. The soulfires, part of it is the knobs honestly for some reason. But the finish for some reason lends itself to looking like a project guitar. Think the binding is adding to that too.

    I understand the finish they're going don't get me wrong but these just look badly executed. A step backwards for them IMO.
