    Combo of his BRJ and Sig Strictly 7 with the predator inlays it looks like. Just made by a better company. After owning mine Schecter Custom Shop is hands down another level of quality/playability.

    Also, 26 frets?

    Not feeling the inlays so much, but I dig the shape...I hope they do a cheaper version as well, maybe sans inlays, I could get into that!

    Schecter USA is pretty open to changed in models. I would ask if you can get it without the inlays.

    Not a fan of that, but it's mostly because I think Schecter's Sunset/C1/C7 shape is maybe the best looking 24 fret superstrat around, so any change from that isn't a good change IMHO. I don't even normally like carved-top double cuts, but Schecter really got it right with the Sunset.

    Will it be the 1st Schecter USA Custom Shop's 26.5" scale 7-string? I like the shape, but probably was hoping for more carved cutaways. RGDs take the cake in that design category IMHO, I'm also not digging the predator inlays.

    To me the important question is, which pickups? In a recent Tosin Abasi/Fishman clinic, I think Tosin hinted at a Fluence KM sig., not in words to be fair. It'll be an interesting NAMM.

    And there is the first Schecter I am gonna buy!!!11! Curios to see how much these will go for in the EU. Only thing I am not stoked for is the fishmans. I don't get the hype, they don't sound like anything special in demos, though they are probably more versatile than the nazgul / sentient. A lot of people seem to either hate or love the nazgul.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!!!! This looks amazing! Please tell me it has SS frets, and if it's 26.5", I may be "accidentally" broke for a very looong time :D

    EDIT:

    I'm gonna be in deeep trouble, quoting Keith's post on his instagram:

    Are they making those USA-made customs only for Keith, or is it gonna be a real production model, and will there be similar guitar made in South-Korea? Predator inlays are little bit tacky in my opinion, but otherwise a beatiful axe.

    I feel like the shape is exactly based on his Bernie Rico Jr. Hesperian. Love the shape, very sharp.
