    These look like a load of bland, generic chunga-chunga metal guitars. Nothing for me to get too excited about but then I guess I'm not the target audience.

    :lol: I'm at the end of my work day and haven't eaten in way too many hours so I laughed at this much more than I should have. Made my day!

    On topic: I'm really digging the sleek metal machine type look of these. I'm currently looking to buy a PRS SE but incase the limited edition maple fb one I want gets sold out I might consider picking up a blood red A2.6. It's pretty much what I would want in a signature guitar if I had one :D

    I'm sure he'll bring out a tribal graphic one soon ;)

    No, you didn't. (Should I add "neener neener" to stay on the same level of argumentation ?)

    The more I look at them, the more I like the trans white A1.6. Also, a lot of the models seems to be sold out already. You have to hand it to Ola for a very successful launch so far!

    I know right, why doesn't Ola make more camo and blood splatter guitars instead of something that actually looks classy??? :noplease:

    :scratch:
    Who said anything about blood splatter and tribal graphics? It is actually possible to just not be that excited by these, and I feel bad saying that, cause I like Ola and I'm rooting for him. These aren't nearly as attractive to me as Schecter, PRS SE, LTD, Charvel, or Jackson models in similar price ranges. Especially Schecter.

    My comment was just a joke about Esp Griffyn saying these were chugga chugga guitars while having a slayer avatar, I don't really care what you think about the looks.

    I changed my avatar to this the day that Jeff Hanneman died. I couldn't tell you the last time I listened to Slayer, it would be have been years ago now.

    I haven't listened to LA Guns in years either. I should probably get on that this afternoon.

    Make that trans white with maple fb without inlay and black headstock. It would be 99,99% perfect for me :)

    yeah, Although I love Pantera, I never really jumped into them, specially early in my music path. I knew they were there and were cool and heavy but never bought a CD or follow them. And by the time I started to read about brands and what not, Dime was already with Dean, or better said Dean was still producing his guitar after he passed away, so my assumption was that he always played those, even when that was not the case

    As I pointed out, you didn't even address any but one of the points I made, and the one point you did address was based off of something factually inaccurate anyway. So we can go back and forth with the whole "duck season/rabbit season"-looney tunes style argument, or not. But when you respond to one of my posts with

    Also, knocking the company for offering affordable guitars and then knocking the company for also offering premium guitars that you couldn't afford is highly inconsistent. You either make nice guitars, cheap guitars, or both. WTF are you even expecting?

    I think my counter to your response to me was well justified.
