something I'm really expecting, but I guess it's gonna be an expansive version (but you never know, the Anthrax Flag SL that was released is an affordable version) is the Jackson KV with the flying V look.

+1

I would really want that to happend. I also hope that they will release the 'Les Paul' Marty Friedman had used lately. The email Jackson sent out yesterday showed the contour of a Les Paul shaped guitar.

I think it was said in the post about the new Marty's shape that it will indeed be introduced at NAMM, so you should prepare your wallet ;)

The Broderick model (the pro) is definatly 12''. I played it recently at a shop and it was fairly obvious that it was different from most fretboards. Felt great though.

And yeah, never trust specs of some shop website, usually they are way off.

Also in the Broderick vid: That fretboards is NASTY! seriously, clean your guitar before you do videos about your guitar :lol:

I've attached a photo of the singlecut they built for Marty, he's got a few on his Facebook page.

Jackson posted this on their Instagram page yesterday, the outline in the front is definitely a singlecut:

They have done a couple of singlecuts before if the memory serves correct; I think Phil Collen has one?

I didn't even pick up on the Singlecut shape in that picture. Hopefully they'll release something that looks a lot less crap than the Friedman PRS that was released.

A 2 month old post from Brodericks instagram with the text:

Just got done checking out my new custom hardtail Jackson guitar that will be released at NAMM 2016! It is so kick ass, I can't wait to get my hands on the finished product!!!!

I don't know why Marty half-assed that sig. He took a SE Tremonti and threw star inlays and a different bridge on it. :ugh:

This singlecut looks so much better. And I hope they introduce as Kelly sig as well. I loved the way his Kelly looked.

Also, I'm curious if the Broderick sig will have a monorail bridge like his first one.

I don't know if this means they're making them available for the custom shop, but Jackson will be showing off some Firebirds. Probably the first time they made them in years.

On top of that, saw this on JCF...

Definitely got a singlecut happening, and it's looking like that fugly prototype someone showed off a few months ago.

My cousin bought the PRS Friedman sig a couple months ago and its probably the best guitar for the money I've ever played.

Jackson did a new PC sig 2 or 3 years ago and it was a giant flop. It was butt-ugly and had a large body. And I think it only came in gold and some other nasty color. You don't even see Phil playing it, if I'm not mistaken. They made a one-off 3H pseudo-Destroyer for him last year that people really liked, but apparently Jackson had no intention of releasing it for production for some reason.

Jackson has had a couple of very lackluster NAMMs. I just have a feeling this year is going to be pretty exciting.

I'd honestly settle for a reissue of the SLAT3-7 with full sized inlays...

Uhh...I have a SLAT3-7 with full-sized inlays. The first run of 50 or so were the ones with the small inlays and no binding.
