    EVH just previewed a glimpse of a new Wolfgang with a different kind of vomit burst on burl.

    It's probably a new Demmelition X-Stroyer.

    they really should consider to darken their rosewood or use something like resonator/ebonol whatever...

    it looks like a floyd (it's basically a part of it), but i agree, it's ugly as hell (only rivaled by the frx)

    Thank you Jackson for not having an attractive mid-range line that isn’t artist sigs. God forbid you have ebony/black composite FB on regular Rhoads or warriors with higher QC than the entry level line has. *still holding breath*

    Yup, at that price it's Mexican made. ~$1100 - $1300.

    And the bridge is indeed a Gotoh made bridge.

    I have a Jackson DK7 which is Mexican made, and that is a really nice guitar. So I wouldn't really worry about that, personally. In fact it's kind of nice that it won't be $3-4k. I just wish I liked the way it looked.

    Yeah, it doesn't bother me. Their MiM shit has apparently gotten MUCH better in the passed few years. And yeah, I agree it isn't a $5000 custom piece or a $500 import.

    Though I have to say it's disappointing that for the particular guitar shown on the website, they couldn't build one without some kind of grain runout on the bass-side maple piece of the neck... People make fun of the high-res shots of some Schecter guitars because there is some lint, but at least those tend to have perfectly sawn necks.
