    Yea, Baby Metal had me worried it'd just be a bad graphic, or maybe even the singers silkscreened on there. Not too shabby.

    This had me worried, because I legit despise Babymetal and I thought it may have some ....ty graphic or logo on it. But it looks awesome!

    I think babymetal is pretty awesome, and this model is pretty cool. I know that they're a "prepackaged" kinda think like the girl and boy pop groups over there, but at least the back up band has legit musicians in it. Look those guys up, they're serious business.

    Ack, not a fan of the arrow model. Which is just as well because I just bought a guitar and might have been tempted by something else.

    Looks better than I thought, but I'd have a hard time justifying the $3k USD pricing for it.

    I love it when sig models keep the signature .... to a minimum, but have enough things different about it to show its unique to the artist.

    Anyone else think its bullsh!t that the actual guitarist isn't in the advertisement? Instead they throw up the three girls kwaii enough to get chosen by the record company because they'd sell more albums.

    I like that "limited production till August 31, 2017" part. Spreadsheet prediction for when Babymetal's 15 minutes ends?

    Nah, it's just false-rarity. Make people think something is rare/hard to come by and they're more inclined to make on-a-whim decisions about purchasing.

    I despise offset V's, so this has zero appeal to me, but for what it is it looks pretty cool. I like the black with red (or any color for that matter) bevels.

    I think this looks great. I even like the specs on it. I always wanted a 7 string v in my life but not for 3 grand. If they made a similar Ltd model I would likely buy it.
