    Does anyone have any more pictures of this rare beauty? It looks insane, there's supposedly going to be in production according to Instagram but who knows when THAT'LL be 10387535_10152527697901744_1974515648790030660_n.jpg SmartSelect_20180812-223324_Instagram.jpg

    I actually think it looks rather odd and misproportioned. Might be the same case as with Gus G. though, where ESP iirc encouraged him to use this starshape for his custom guitar...

    When a Rhoads identifies as a Kelly...

    That said, I dig it the more I look at it.

    That looks very reminiscent to Rob Cavestany's custom Jackson Death Angel guitar.

    Looking at it makes me a believer in strict, binary genders. I mean, I get that when you used to play RGAs it's all downhill from there, but did it have to go this far down? Just a Chris sig Rhoads would be worth buying.

    I'm not normally massively into the pointies but there's something monstrous, glaive-like about this which tickles my fancy.

    Considering that Chris and Jeff Loomis seem to have both followed the same sort of idea with the evolution of their sigs, I'd say this is a lot better than the Cygnus to my eyes.

    This is what happens when you let guitarists design their own guitars.

    Not a fan. Body is too small and it looks really goofy when a dude as swole as Broderick is playing it

    The treble horn on that thing looks like someone sneezed while using the CNC router and just left it that way. So fugly. :lol:

    Eww, it's like too small RR and Kelly combined.

    I'm not especially picky about this kinda thing but that bottom line and/or the knob recesses look sloppy AF.

    Okay now I'll admit the death angel is.... Stubby looking. It's reminiscent of a starfish or someone doing a dance move if you squint. But it's always nice to have your OWN guitar I guess
    But I see the Broderick as a V that you can play in classical position, those two liiiittle horns that people laugh at change the whole aesthetic for me.
    Imagine it with a different finish, or an ash body like the Dave Davidson sig, that'd be killer!

    Yeah, I'm assuming (HOPING) this was just a "let's test this out" kind of deal, hopefully the new prototype or whatever will have more symmetry around the edges and points. I'd still get one just to have, you don't see that many seven strings with crazy bodies

    this guitar is fucking hideous. it's like someone took a star and lopped off the front horns, or took an unfinished rhodes body and painted without cleaning up the front nub horns. Either way this is the ugliest guitar to come from Jackson since the death angel.
    I'd take a warrior, death kelly, kelly star or regular star over this shit any day.
    Also the monarkh is fine

    I really don't mind that Broderick model TBH and of course in my cheap opinion. That Monarkh is like the net balance of the extra bouts the Wylde's took up in the universe. The DeathAngel thing is just no. Someone's CNC needs a Stuxnet visit.

    It's odd that the cheaper JS version has a more properly shaped treble horn.
