    The thing is Jackson and Charvel are turning away the expensive custom shop orders! That what I completely don’t get. And I was just asking for things that they’ve already built and aren’t very unusual.

    It’s not like I was asking for some bizarre headless monstrosity or a fan fret with a tremolo. Oh wait, they will build those! But heaven forbid someone ask for a 7-String San Dimas or Dinky. That’s just NUTS.

    So. So salty.

    So Jackson is still selling 90 models with 1 of 5 sets of nearly identical specs in different colours..

    I am already disappointed and NAMM just started.

    So does it leave a bad taste in anyone else's mouth that they build all of these firebirds and roundhorn v's and straight up explorers for NAMM when not only is their real custom shop closed to orders but even if it wasn't everybody knows damn well they couldn't make you one?

    Some of these look great. I especially love the white quilted soloist. With that said, I can't stand Jackson's offerings of quality. The gap between their pro series and USA is way too big. Pro series has never impressed me while their USA models are so overpriced and hold no value.

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy the DK24 2PT's got some new colors. Just sucks that the new colors are only on USA models for us little guys.

    OMG list on the Charvel USA DK24 is almost $4,500... That is... a high number.

    agreed. Literally the usa select line is a joke. You can buy a used Jackson Custom Shop for the same price of a new bare bones usa. Fuck. That.

    Schecter really has been getting my attention over these few years and for good reasons.

    Man nowadays from the select series it is like limited to black and white. Some have a trans black finish, but that is just as rare as finding a new warrior.

    Yeah. I heard from a masterbuilt from last year it had fanned frets and such, the fretboard wood ended up popping up 6 months later. for a $5k+ guitar. Plus there is like maybe 1-3 of the masterbuilds that I actually like, but being the price being something for a lawyer or doctor, it will never reach my (and many others) hands

    That's not the price that will be in stores though right? I saw a UK pre-order for £2600 so about $3400. It's still expensive though, I can't imagine they're really that much better than a similarly spec'd alternative that you could get for sub-2k...

    That said I still want one.

    Yeah, that's just the list price. Not sure what the Street would be, but $3400 could be right. I'm not saying the guitar isn't worth that much, but it certainly isn't a bang-for-the-buck instrument...

    That looks great, though for some reason it's priced higher than the Guthrie sig.

    edit: I see this has been covered already.

    If it was called a Standard/Modern or Angel it would be $8k. :lol:

    Looks like Charvel introducing a DK24 USA in HH (SS frets, titanium saddles, roasted neck) config:

    Well. Here's to hoping we get a DK24 2PT in Matte Blue Frost next year. Favorite color of theirs but it's on none of the DK24 line.

    Suhr doesn't make Dinkys. It is an apples to oranges comparison.

    That said, the most expensive Suhr on Music Zoos website is at $5k and could probably be had for less.

    The Suhr Standard is very, very close to a Dinky IMHO. The Modern is... unattractive IMHO (I always have to throw that in there).

    A super strat is a super strat for the most part. :shrug:

    Send the spec sheet in and see what you get. Most of those options aren't typically offered and that's going to shoot the price up significantly vs. an off the list build, if they even agree.
