    So I received this a few days back. Wanted to spend some time with it before putting out a ngd. The guitar came perfectly setup with 9-42s in drop C, it's a tad too light for my liking but I stuck with it to see how it would play out since it's setup real nice. No truss adjustments needed.

    The bridge is a hip shot type and is really comfortable. No noticeable difference between it and a hip shot bridge. Really comfortable to rest the hand on the low profile.

    The pickups are pretty huge sounding, not overly bright. Works well for its purpose. But of course you can't compare them to premium ones. But they get the job done, I reckon I won't be replacing them. Tone knob in its normal position is bypassed so it's a tad brighter than the max setting if you pulled it up. At The pulled up position it acts as a normal tone control.

    Frets are dressed well, no sharp ends, neck pocket is tight. It's just really playable and a joy to play, the carves are really nice too. The matt white finish is brilliant, no flaws whatsoever but you will smudge it if you have dirty hands.

    Pardon the phone photos, photography is not my strong suite.

    Now all you need is a dingwall bass haha! I was hoping someone would get the pro series HT's here (expecting more to start showing up). I just love the aesthetics of those guitars, though I'm really hoping they come out with a matte orange version since I couldn't get the special run from last year. That or a slime green. I'd jazz so hard for a pro series HT7 in those colors.

    Actually the JBM is the JBM100 so I have an odd one out.

    HNGD, the HT6 guitars are very sleek looking. I've come to really like solid finish and this is a great example of how a great design can be complemented by a minimalist color scheme.

    I was tricked, too. The lighting made it look like a rosewood fretboard. Nice trio!!

    yeah same

    also it amazes me how similar the RGA and the Jackson body look in that pic, except for the top horn

    The elongated horns are what make the difference for me in terms of how much I love the Juggernaut's shape . I love how pointy it is. The RGA comes so close (I also have an RGA121) but it's just not quite as cool looking for me.

    Very Nice! Congrats!
    Love the location of the volume knob. That's what I'm talking about. Cool body shape, I dig it!

    .009-.042 for drop C :noway: Good god man throw some .010-.052's on there at least :lol: I'm in drop C running .013-.056 and I'm liking those although I'll admit they're a bit tough to play on some riffs. Think I'm gonna settle on .012-.054's and call it heaven for this tuning.

    No beautiful holes in the back. Never.


    That HT6 in white looks amazing!! I really want one now... In white for a glam band seems to fit right hahaha.

    Congrats!!

    Why on earth do they ship it with 9-42 in drop c? That's too light for a lot of people even in standard tuning. Must've gotten a good deal on a bulk string order....
