From the looks of it the Ironbird has stood the test of time.
nah he's right, those pointy ends are always the first thing to get trashed. Happens to basically all pointy designs with thinner tips.
Ohh, he means the left tip of the “V”? Yeah I can see that getting thrashed.
@KnightBrolaire - yeah, you got what I was aiming for...
I don't really know who that fellow is, but I guess he's a cool guy...?
... and @Blytheryn... yah, probably not my most explicit comment but I was indeed referring to that upper "V" horn/pointy thing. It looks so fragile, a bad calculated turn in the house and bang, it snaps right of. I'm not questioning from when it was designed, nor if it stood or not the test of time, only that is is a bad design in my opinion. There are so many bad designs that keep on being made because people are used to them, see Gibson's Les Pauls Classics for example... and this only in our little musical corner... combustion cars! That's another example...
So, to be clear, I'm not thrashing pointy guitars, only commenting this particular one. Xiphos are cool and some Vs as well...
All those are very fair points indeed. I've seen many an RR's etc. with truncated fins!
Pretty cool guy.
... so he's on Cannibal Corpse?
I mean, you could Google it if you cared.
He joined earlier this year. I mean it makes sense, since Pat's in legal trouble and Erik's been their producer for awhile now and probably has a good feel for how the band works. Listen to early Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal and you get a good idea who he is.
Also he needs a sig Ironbird like now.
... obviously... it's not that I don't care about Cannibal Corpse (which is a band I haven't heard anything of for 20+ years, simply because they don't really fill my expression needs), it's just that I couldn't do anything else in my life if I was to follow every single clue and lead you guys leave around here. Sometimes, the SSO collective knowledge works better for those who ask for it...? I've learned to acknowledge you guys know best...
Thanks for the small story/info on them...
I've asked the store to let me know if any of them arrive. Apparently they have a green pearl on order (I've only seen the Orange one) so I'm looking forward to a different colour and trying it out if it's any good. Not sure when it'll be though!
I wish my Fender and Squier came in boxes like this. I know it is a weird quibble, but not a fan of the boxes.
I’m really glad they are not offering these gunslingers w/ a rosewood or ebony fretboard, because I don’t think I would be able to resist. Beautiful guitars.
waiting for the USA metallic purple color to arrive on import models.... but the green one looks gorgeous

The colors are cool. Not in the mood for a new guitar atm but I'd have bought one if this was released 10 years ago.
The black Ironbirds are conspicuous in their absence...
Whilst I like bright colours, I'm not a fan of bright metallic colours, but black will do my nicely. Throw some brass fine tuners on the floyd, an 80's speedknob and a zebra pickup and it'll look 30 years old!
What's up with the Gunslingers not having a forearm contour? Have they always been like that? Sorry if this has been discussed before.
Imagine if they had released these model first
