    Well, I finally got ahold of one: A bernie rico jr Jekyll 727. Got this guitar from the FANTASTIC seller AdamOfAngels. He is an oustanding guy, and really does right by you, he is among the best around. He called this guitar a 9.9/10: This thing is dead mint in my book , cant find a flaw anywhere., Anyways, heres a few pics.

    Mahogany body
    ebony board, 26 3/16's scale
    mahogany neck (thru)
    SS frets
    BKP Painkiller matching set (LOVE them, grind is unreal)
    OFR

    All in all spec wise, its about as close to my dream guitar as I could possibly get. I traded my jpxi 7 and some cash for this, as I was just not jiving at all with my jpxi no matter what I do. I will say, this guitar lives up to the hype. This one is was built before the black friday stuff, and has gotta be the best playing guitar I've ever played. It is everything I would want in a neck: Basically feels just like my USA jackson RR-1T< but maybe (gasp) better. super thin, super comfortable. ALl in all, I can honestly say I doubt this guitar will ever be going anywhere. enjoy.

    Oh man that is classic Rico Jr, he really needs to get better and start building again. There is no replacement for one of these.

    I didn't want a FLoyd, but I was SERIOUSLY tempted by that axe. Freaking epitome of perfection. HNGD!

    That there is the ultimate classic no-frills metal guitar. Distinctive but not ornate, classy but doesn't call attention to itself. Congrats. :yesway:

    It is absolutely killer man. I had to find a way to get it, it's classy as hell, and probably wouldn't be able to scoop something like this up again for a very, very long time. I'm in Orlando, FL if you ever wanna check it out. I have to have atleast 1 floyd 7, and this was IT for me, for sure.

    it kinda reminds me of a Mick Thompson signature Ibanez, but with more strings and with more balls. i like it a lot!

    HNGD!
