    Got this in today and it sounds great. It's got great bottom end and great attack. The neck is surprisingly thicker than I expected but it's not too bad. This is supposedly the only lefty that they made (custom shop). It's flawless. Loving the extra lower horn carve. Especially since I play upside down. It'll make a solid 6 for me and I'm extremely pleased with it. Only wish I would have gotten the cool Juggernaut case that the right handed ones come with but I still got the cool case candy!

    The case you got is 100x nicer than the normal ones - I wish mine came with one of these! They look cool, but are really cheaply made and don't fit well at all.

    That said, HNGD! Also, you play leftys upside down?

    Happy NGD! Misha's signature guitars are killer, I doubt a custom shop one would be any different. :)

    Congrats, I never would have thought that a satin orange would look so good but Jackson and Misha pulled it off, enjoy it!

    I wonder how that kid who kept on bragging about ordering a lefty Juggernaut (and even had Misha respond to him) is doing right now.

    Probably better than me right now. A little update, was playing it the other night and looked really closely and found a crack in the neck pocket. Called xlguitars and they said the body will probably have to be replaced. I don't feel like waiting months or possibly years for a new body. So I just chose something he had in stock instead.

    Was it an actual crack in the wood or just the finish?

    Too bad but good on Dave at xlg for taking it back. He's stepped up and helped me recently as well!

    Yeah I sent it back. It could be just a finish crack but I don't want to risk that it could be a crack in the body. So I got a new Ibanez JEM777DY 30th anniversary to replace it. Still not sure if Im feeling the Ibanez. But either way Dave definitely made it good and would recommend him all day.

    That's a straight bummer. I personally would have had it checked out, and if just finish crack kept it.

    Having the only one of something is rad as shit.

    This went on for pages and pages until he got banned for trolling the entire thread.

    I met the guy irl at a concert. Says he wasn’t trolling and was actually ordering the build. He seemed genuine, but who knows
