    I've been out of the loop for a while as I couldn't afford new gear so I avoided the forum like it was a disease
    This new multiscale trem is something I want to look into

    Im waiting for a custom select kelly star, monarkh, and a 7 string kv or kelly. Not that im holding my breath. oh and id love to be able to get get an option for 24.75 scale and throw in a 26.5 or 27 option for people as well. Never happening I know but with the lack of the actual custom shop being open it would be a start.

    I finally watched a full walk of their NAMM booth, and man, it really is the worst. About 20 new juggernaut colours, as if they didn't saturate that to death already. Wasted the crackle on a $450 beater, instead of finally offering a higher spec'd guitar that doesn't try to chase the tail of the Djent era of finishes well after the market tired of the race, and isn't just black. I only own Jacksons, but in the last 4 years, I've run out of new guitars to buy because they clogged up their damn custom shop and are just spitting out the same tired crap. Hard to GAS when the company you prefer is blowing smog rings up your ass.

    I'm guessing being a rep for Jackson puts more food on the table.

    EDIT: Dafuq, the explorer is caalled the Annihilator? I thought it was called the X-Stroyer?

    If FMIC is going to dick around this much which Charvel and Jacskon, why not just add a San Dimas or SoCal to the Fender line? I could live with that.

    The pricing for the new USA stuff is ridiculous. The usa dk24 looks great but there is now way I would pay that much. Even if you knocked off a grand I paid less for a new masterbuilt jackson namm piece.

    Am I the only who thinks it should have been the dude from Amon Amarth to get the first X-stroyer signature

    Him or Phil Collen, for sure.

    EDIT: To expand on that, Olavi busted his back on the Explorer shape for decades. Plus Amon Amarth is probably the biggest melodeth band next to Arch Enemy (and Dethklok :lol). And of course Phil Collen got his start with the Ibanez Destroyer and has been a Jackson lifer. He also got the first X-Stroyer I believe. While Phil's been a dedicated Jackson dude, he's mostly been a King V or Rhoads guy, so it's... weirdl

    Yeah. Should have been Amon Amarth. Would be nice with some rune small side inlays. Although Phil has been rocking his custom xstroyer for two years now I think.
