    IMG_4646.PNG IMG_4647.PNG I just saw these, I like them quite a bit I emailed Kurt about two weeks ago to see if they ever planned on doing any Neon colored guitars and he said not likely. I don't know that the green and pink is quite neon but I like the direction and hope there is more color options like this in the future.

    I don't know what I think about these "Roasted" maple necks I'll have to see one in person I wish they were just regular maple, also it says they're 7 strings but it's 6 string guitars pictured and I'm hoping we get some 27" versions later. Has anyone else seen these yet?

    Don't worry about roasted maple, it's miles better than regular maple imo. Would love to see these in 7 it'd be a perfect mod guitar.

    I like that they took a chance with that green and pink one.

    Also, they are listed in the 6 string section now.

    Cool Good to know, I agree, if they release a 7 I'll probably buy a few of them

    Same here I love crazy color combos so I hope they release more variations......Ok yeah I see they changed the wording too it doesn't say its a 7 string anymore ;(

    how do you like your Slatxmg3-7 btw? I've been looking at them lately.

    400 dollar guitar with stainless steel frets. That is extremely interesting. I'm just not in the market for a 6 string ATM. If they release a 7 I'll 1000% on it

    Still says 7 string pickups lol. Really dig the shape, well, cause its RG! Now finally make the reverse headstock baritone 7 RG that dumb Ibanez won't ever do. Not RGA, not RGD! Puke emoji.

    Gonna go ahead and take this opportunity to shamelessly plug a 7 string Sceptor I’m selling with stainless steel frets. Check the for sale section as I’m not sure about the rules on linking to it.

    I'd be wary of a $400 guitar with SS frets. It'll be a lot pricier to have a luthier fix them if the fretwork is subpar!

    It shouldn’t be, but I admit I can see guys trying to squeeze all they can from a stainless leveling.

    SS frets on a $400 are going to grind your strings apart. There is no way they are going to be polished to the standards needed. You will need to budget for a level and polish on top of that.

    At first I was excited to see the SS frets, yeah. But then I remember the fact that Agile's have VERY inconsistent frets. I owned two and both have uneven frets.

    Also, much “nicer” guitars out of WMI have had inconsistent SS frets. I made a thread about two of them.
