    ^ Someone showed it's actually photoshopped on the other thread (play w/ contrast/brightness and you'll see it for yourself).

    This entire forum is a palace of lies and innuendos.

    How about a little reshaping. Open the lower horn a bit for better access, shift the arc forward a bit for longer scale comfort, shade in a good forearm cutout cause there does not appear to be one, and move the bridge pickup a bit closer to the bridge. I'm not the best at gimp but you get the idea. Headless is good to, I just started with the other one and wanted to see it with the different headstock.

    Kinda sad that people are gullible enough to warrant that. It's obviously fake...

    The logo is removed just above the fretboard. On the hh2 they put it there because there is no headstock. Zooming in on the nut shows it's Photoshopped.

    Forget about that for a minute and USE YOUR BRAIN. Superstrat with some bevels and some of the body removed behind the bridge? That warrants a new model? That warrants a 10 day long reveal teaser? And why would they move the logo to the headstock for the grand reveal?

    I shouldn't have to explain this. You shouldn't need photoshop analysis. It should be incredibly obvious that someone's ....ing with you.

    ^^^^This is nice^^^^

    Whats with the corner on the body? Gives it a unfinished look to me. Some people may like it. New type of cut? Saw something similar on that Koa DC 800.

    Transition from top wood to body wood through the arm bevel, because the top wood is not bent down to the curve.

    I appreciate that it doesn't say "VADERRRR!!!!1" At least not anywhere conspicuous. :yesway:

    But with no trem, I can't burn a $1000+ hole in my pocket. Back to waiting for an RG8420 or Banshee 8 FR or SL2-8. :rolleyes:
