    I love Vs, had mine for 37 years now, but neither of those do anything for me personally.

    Love that trans dark red finish on the bottom one. There's just something about this shape that looks off to me that I cant quite put my finger on.

    For me, what looks off about them is that the two horns are set at such an aggressive angle that it looks like the butt of the body should be at a similar offset angle, similar to the Chris Broderick soloist.

    Girl's got a flat ass.

    The top horn protrudes too far forward and covers too much real estate on the upper register of the fretboard.

    Yes!
    Its the top horn and also the flat ass. Either slanted like the Broderick or even just rounder in general would probably make more sense to me. But I'm not exactly in the market for one so my opinion is meaningless! :D

    Anyone know of any b stocks floating around? The ST supply is literally fuckin dry, there's not a one to be found and buying one of those suckers new is a month's worth of rent and electric.

    Still waiting on an Ignitor. Doesn't need to be fancy (preferably not gaudy). 6 string, solid colour (black, some neon eye bleeding colour - don't care). 24 frets, trem. Good to go.

    I really, really don't think you'll ever see this guitar outside of the custom shop. That seems to be on purpose.

    Welp I just got a stupid deal on an ST, looks the same as my current. I literally can't be disappointed.

    Probably right. Also means I will never get one, which I guess is ok too.

    It sucks because after doing some brief research, they did do a small run of them in the early-mid '90s. Not sure why they pulled them off the market.

    Has anyone here actually played a custom shop model since the FFDP ownership? Curious if they’re any good; Chondro guitars in Wisconsin has a Warlock but I won’t be making that trip anytime soon thanks to COVID.
