    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.

    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.

    It is.

    You mean you switch pickups during a song? Nah, I don't believe it!
