    We recently got a shipment of 10 RG565s. 8 out of the 10 had to be returned due to uneven frets and neck pocket cracks. MIJ Jacksons fair even worse. Theres major issues in QC spreading around the industry right now. I've even had $6000 custom shops come in issues. Its beyond frustrating.

    Hes not trolling at all. Hes absolutely right. I've owned over a dozen LACS. Most of them could not stack up with even a basic Prestige, nevertheless a J-Custom or Sugi J-Custom.

    I figured everyone knew their "55 point inspection" is a complete fabrication. We get brand new guitars brought in for setups/repair to us ALL THE TIME that clearly were never touched or inspected. Sweetwater is a great company with knowledgable staff and killer photography, but their guitars...

    Dealers that are known for price gouging will continue to do that here as well. Ethical dealers will just sell for the MAP.

    That’s a bummer. My rep made it sound like they were only about 12 dealers in on this. Yeah if all the billion dollar warehouse places are in on this then we are screwed.

    Hi Rich. Yes I am not anticipating getting many myself either, I’m sure there is a ton of competition. But yes in my experience “list” and “msrp” are often used interchangeably, and almost always represent a made up number not reflective of the real “street price”.

    Hi guys. I’ve had a million PMs today about the prices on these based on Rich’s post. Again, list/msrp are not real prices. The actual prices are a good deal lower. They’re still expensive of course, the guitars will range between 7-12k pretty much — but they’re not anywhere close to MSRP...

    ESP Custom Shop Raiden-7 Red Anodized

    Its a limited run JP16 that I designed for my shop, the Axe Palace. It comes in an ebony fingerboard version also :)

    ESP Custom Shop Raiden-7 Red Anodized

    Thanks. Don’t get to use it much but hopefully that’ll change someday!

    Yup! That was a banger too.

    ESP Custom Shop Raiden-7 Red Anodized

    Here is something you don’t every day… or ever? ESP Custom Shop Raiden-7. This is a Japanese market signature model I recently imported, one of the best sounding and most unique 7-strings I’ve played thus far. The GAS is real on this one. It has a richlite fingerboard, red anodized pickguard, SD...

    FS: Bare Knuckle Pickups (Painkiller, Nailbomb, Warpig, etc)

    I would suggest the BKP Nailbomb with the ceramic magnet.

    ESP Owners Club-Show Us Your ESPs!

    That is an Original Series Horizon I in Liquid Metal Pink that I ordered for my shop a while back. All 3 of those have long since sold, but just wanted to share for fun :)

    Holydiver is a great one for sure, just not typically ideal for low tunings. In the Banshee the Warpig would be great.

    The best active pickups on the market?

    You must be new here. I've been consistent on this forum for the last 15 years that I never liked active pickups. Fishmans are the only actives I've ever consistently liked. As much fun as dealing with snarky dudes with hot takes on the Internet is, I must be going for now. Enjoy whatever...

    The best active pickups on the market?

    Yep. I also sell Seymour Duncans, and I'm more than happy to tell you I think Blackouts are awful. My opinions are, and always have been, genuine. I dont like every Fishman set, but by and large I've yet to hear any active that comes close. Whatever you say dude. If something better comes...

    The best active pickups on the market?

    Most people I know *never* liked any of those things, bro. I think you're overrating the hype you see from a small vocal minority rather than the masses. The reason Vader and Krank went out of business in 2 minutes is no one actually gave a shit. It was smoke and mirrors, not reality. In real...

    The best active pickups on the market?

    I never said you did. I'm just responding to the insinuation that Fishman's popularity is due to a fad rather than for the real reason: the vast majority of those who've tried them love them and prefer them to EMGs.
