I would love to see some new stuff from them. Is a shame that they discontinued some fixed bridge models like the rr1t and kv2t. Now everything have floyds

They've just taken a bunch of models down from their website and reshuffled the rest so I suspect we'll start to see a few things pop up soon.

There does look to be two relatively new finishes (unsure if they've used them before for these models):





They're not listed as finishes on either at the moment.

Nice, I hope they do more colours of the RRXMGs or in general more RR models with 24 Frets.

I hope they kept/keep some of the Hardtail Dinky's around. I've had GAS for a Chlorine Burst maple fret board one for some time.

I've been craving a 24 fret Rhoads with one humbucker for years. I doubt it will happen but I can hope.

They had the RR24 for a while when the Pro series was still made in Japan that was exactly what you're looking for, a 24 frets Rhoads with one humbucker. I see them pop up on the used market once in a while.

Another production Soloist 7 with the traditional headstock and shark fin inlays in ANY color would make me happy happy boy. Also I'm not really a fan of the toggle switches they're putting on them now either. Maybe I'll just start playing DKs instead.

You mean the blade switches?

The soloists don't appear to have blade switches anymore. I miss them. All the newer ones seem to have those 3 way toggles on them.

Hoping for a good Dave Davidson Warrior sig, but we will see. Otherwise, I may have to order one next year in the trans black. Maybe custom select so I can reverse the headstock.

I predict that Jackson will make The One Guitar. The one that so many of us have been waiting for..... except that it will have a Kahler trem, polka dots and plastic pentagram inlays. That seems to be the way of things with these guys lately. :lol:

I'm pretty sure a Les Paul style toggle switch is the normal setup for 2 pickup USA soloists.

There's also the super 80's three mini toggle setup that looks super annoying to use :lol:

I don't know about y'all, but I would love a guitar with the three mini toggle setup and 3 pickups. More pickup combos than are possible with other toggle switches

Ah, I'm the exact opposite. I see no reason for a blade switch on a two 'bucker guitar.
