    Holy shit. Those 87 series Indonesian M-I Customs are going for the equivalent of $1400 over here. That is just plain bullshit. It's Indonesian. For $1400 it should have a German OFR, real Gotoh hardware, and a fucking hard case. Seriously wtf is wrong with people these days? They can fuck right off with those crazy ass prices. There is absolutely no reason for that kind of price hike. For another couple hundred you can get a Japanese made EII or Ibanez with good pickups and hardware with a fucking hard case.

    Where the hell is Danzig anyway!?

    Is it just me or there is no updates at all to the EII range this year?

    ^It had to be expected I guess, prices are skyrocketing, and things will get worse. Maybe Indos have become expensive faster than many could imagine tho. Personally I've already decided I'm not gonna purchase any imports in that price range, the guitars I like are very down to earth spec wise, and for that kind of money I'm not shelling out more than 600-700 €s for a brand new instrument.

    A while back in the thread someone posted that they're not launching new EII stuff at NAMM because their factory needs to catch up on existing orders first, or something like that.

    It was a home for the Teutonic Knights back in the day. It's the spot where WW2 started.

    So not too far from Gdansk I see! Are Mayones actually cheaper around these parts?

    Danzig is the German name for Gdansk. It was an all German speaking town for a very long time. I mean you can get some used Mayones from the 80s to early 00s for dirt cheap but none of the recent stuff is any less expensive. They apparently said fuck trying to cater to their own people and sell expensive guitars for people that make money in dollars, pounds, and euros.

    Oh so you're from the place here named "Danzica", quite famous I'd say! I thought you were a US citizen :D

    Makes sense since it has the covered Dimarzio pickups, real Hipshot, and stainless frets. Plus I'm sure the open grain finish is a bit more involved to produce than normal gloss :2c:

    I've actually been asking for a true Hipshot and SS frets on an Alex Wade model since way back when the first version was announced, so I'm pretty much obligated to buy this one :lol:

    I love that guitar but I cannot BELIEVE they felt the need to put a top on that piece of ash

    Just grabbed a Black Metal M and it's perfection. They really ought to have a Black Metal Horizon in the line up. Reverse dagger stock.

    Black metal Horizon or Horizon 3 with a cockstock (NOT THE SHITTY FUCKING SCHECTER HEADSTOCK) and a single bridge pickup would be unf.

    Also I feel dumb about completely forgetting about the M7 baritone. Almost perfect spec-wise. :yum:

    Not that I want that much filler in a guitar body, but it is pretty.
