    You gotta diversify if you want to keep raking in heaps of cash during these uncertain times.

    Can't speak for all of the merch-products, but wasn't the coffee a super limited run/PR stunt type thing?
    Or am I thinking of the GOD=DOG dogfood they did?

    I can respect the hustle, dude gotta eat.

    But yeah, they haven't released anything worth listening to more than once in a good while.

    I keep thinking The Satanist was the most recent album and that it got released recently - but it was five years ago haha. That was the last album that had anything I really carried for other than Wolves ov Siberia (sucker for when they go back to their more black metal style riffs).

    The new Architects video has very few shots where Josh's guitar is visible, but it certainly looks like a new guitar. As far as I could tell from the one shot it's visible for like a second, it has a quilted maple top with an tiger eye burst. I've never watched his streams so if he described it as this, I'm game.

    Looks like a TOM, string thru body. It's definitely bolt-on, bound body (looked like the binding might be pearl?), I think it's an M rather than a Horizon (the shots where I paused it, never saw any reflection to suggest an arched top). I thought it was one-colour, possibly see-through, but I did see the one shot that OliOliver's referring to where it 'could' be a burst.

    Definitely an M. Not really a bad thing, but a bummer that it isn't a new Horizon sig with a burst, bolt on neck and reverse inline headstock. That would be sick. Screen Shot 2020-10-29 at 12.22.28 PM.png

    Exactly, that would be an instant buy, so would a production version of his custom.

    Alright looking back at the picture posted a week or so ago, I can see the flat top now. :lol: So it's definitely going to be a Mirage but with specs similar to his Horizon.

    I'm also thinking I see a bit of a cutaway? Like the M-1 Custom?

    I think it's just a standard M body.

    I don't post often so no idea if these pics will work, but to answer questions:

    Hard to make out on 1080p monitor, even with 5K video resolution, but truss cover seems to say "JM-6" which would follow ESP's standard naming conventions.
    Heel makes it appear to be neck-thru.
    TOM bridge with string-thru body.
    Appears to be single volume set up, presumably push/pull for voicings. No idea what kind of pickup switch.
    Fishman Fluence Moderns.
    Definitely a quilted maple top/veneer.
    Colour could be either tiger eye burst, or grey burst like some of his Horizons.

    EDIT: Accidentally overwritten the first picture which was showing it as string-thru. Can't be arsed to go back and do it again, tbh.

    Yep. I'm a broken record like I said, but it looks like he pretty much combined his two favorite guitars; his Horizon NT-II and his M-II.

    Can't blame him, it's a pretty sick mash up. My only downside is not liking actives, but changing pickups is easy as shit. Could be worth thinking about grabbing this one
