    I don't *hate* the abalone billboards they released... But I feel like if they went with that aesthetic in the beginning, they'd probably be much better off. Something more stripped down and affordable.

    "Pull the plug"??? Did you just make a Death song reference? Nice. :D

    I'd love an "N5" -- HSS with coil tap L500, and two Lace Sensor single coils.

    Patiently waiting for the Ironbirds to arrive. From what I understand, it should be any day now. I've got one fully paid off so all I've got to do is go pick it up. I've also got one of the Warlock Extreme's so I'll be real interested in checking out the differences between the two (besides overall shape and feel). GAS is reaching ultimate levels....

    Waiting for people's reaction to those and the sub $1000 dollar warlocks. If QC is right, these are some mean metal machines on paper. Wish sweetwater would carry them, always have good experiences with them and their setups etc. Gonna have to branch out for pointy goodness.

    Hmm, Sweetwater no mas? That's a surprise. There's a shop in Washington state called Red Blanket that I can recommend if you're looking. Pretty sure the owner posts here on the regular.
    I'll definitely be posting an NGD when I get the IB. If the Extreme series is any indication I'm stoked for a stripped down workhorse of a guitar for some serious play time.

    Yeah, they offer setups for $80, $160 if you want to upgrade the nut to bone or Tusq, and $250 if you want it Plek'd.

    Are you referring to one of these?

    If so, I'd love to know. I'm super tempted because it looks super dumb, but at almost £1000...

    I'm the same! Super intrigued as to how these turn out.
    I'm torn between one of these or the Brandon Ellis Kelly.

    That one looks like a fun guitar, nice color too, but that upper back horn... I bet it won't resist intact a whole week. Bad design in my opinion.

    It may be dumb and silly, but it's an OG design from the 80s!
