    Well haven't been around SS forum since april, and this news really surprised me.
    Is there any information why does dino finally approved his sign??
    I mean, back then dino said on his twitter that his sign series won't happen.

    That gunmetal grey RG is one of my dream guitars. They could just release that and I'd be all over it. Personally, I'd prefer a blank board and a non-soapbar pickup though.

    The colour is hot as hell. The 3 piece neck looks absolutely delicious/incredible. And a lo-pro edge on a RGD? I don't even like Dino or Fear Factory and I would be all over this one if I didn't need the money for something else.

    Dino specced this himself. So the "why" this happened is simply because "he managed to get what he wanted to", to be honest. He's pretty straightforward in this respect, to be honest. :)

    One of my best friends was his guitar tech on their last couple tours. He's even got one of his old necks sitting in his living room right now. Nothing really spectacular. A lot of his guitars aren't LACS at all. Modified stock guitars. I wasn't all that impressed. Carvins are put together better. I've seen some killer LACS stuff. But this wasn't it. Hopefully this is better news than what I'm expecting.

    ^ I had a completely different experience while checking out some of his LACS - I found them really amazing guitars, extremely well built! And Dan Lawrence's painting is truly awesome, especially "The Industrialist" - I haven't seen a photo that will show how the painted "cover" really looks on a black matt "background", really impressive live.

    And also - if any of you have any questions for Dino - post them here :)

    I have asked Dino if he can/wants to comment about "Modified stock guitars" etc.

    this is what he said:

    Pretty interesting!
    It's a good idea to test such things on a stock guitar, I guess it has to save a lot of time as well - makes sense :)

    I agree, it is. However, my buddy has played almost exclusively ibanez guitars for his entire career. He's reconstructed several from parts since I've known him. He was also Paul Rogers guitar tech. From what he told me, he quit. I won't share why. Dino isn't giving you a complete picture. I will agree though, an LACS is a nice guitar. I've played a few. But I wouldn't compare it to an EBMM or even a Carvin. Not anymore anyway. I spoke with a couple of the guys who teach guitar craft at MI once about LACS stuff and they kinda rolled their eyes. Supposedly the guy who runs that shop has worked on a few for some big names. I don't know how accurate that is though.

    Having his little signature on the headstock like he does on his LACS would have been a nice touch

    He's said in interviews that he prefers the feel of a floyd for his picking hand while palm muting.
