    Pro-Mod DK24 HH HT M Mahogany with figured walnut top. Almost picked one those up a few months back. Does look better with the roasted neck.

    That seems like an ebony fretboard with a neckthrough construction and series 1000 Floyd. It would be the MIJ one and not the PDX-2. I hope you got it for a PDX-2 price!

    I thought it might have been the MIJ one that’s why I snatched it up and I paid about 900 CAD for it and had to wait two weeks for it to ship to the states but I feel like I got a hell of a deal.

    I think these have actually been out for a while—it comes it white too. I've checked out a couple in stores and was really impressed with how well they played. Sounded like absolute crap to me, but I know a lot of people like Fluences.

    Jackson may have their issues, but they really knocked it out of the park with this

    Trav Levrier customs. Carve looks like it’s based off MM models though - good pickup

    I love his Jacksons. I really wish they would offer him a sig or at least a run. Don't forget his green/aqua one

    That's basically a Japanese market Fusion. Safe buy.

    I've seen Travis' Jacksons posted dozens of times now and it's still just as amazing as it was the first time I saw them... The one with the fade is just unreal.

    Anyone had any experience with the usa juggernaut? Man I'd give my left nut for one of the flame tops

    Plenty, what would you like to know?

    EDIT: I should note, all my experience is with the 1st iteration. I’ve yet to get my hands on the new roasted maple model but others on this forum have.

    On the ht7fm how flamed is the fretboard, does it vary much or is the quality the same throughout, also both the tiger eye and Laguna blue look amazing in the photos, but in the real world which one looks actually better. Looking to pull the trigger on one, but have to sell a guitar first

    For the new flame model the fretboards have been hit or miss when it comes to having flame. Some have been out of this world, others have looked like like a regular piece of roasted maple. I’d suggest do your shopping first and wait until you find the right one. Sweetwater and other shops are a good choice as you can see it before hand.

    I’ve only seen the new tiger eye flame in person and it looks great. I’ve yet to see the new laguna variant. Honestly though it comes down to which one you like more. You get one, you’re gonna want the other color and down the road you go haha.

    Cheers I'm in the uk and as far as I can see, the only 1 shop in the uk has the ht7fm Laguna, soif I went with the tiger eye it would be an interwebs order which I'm a bit hesitant at as I'd like to see the flame on neck first. However guess I have a long wait ahead anyway unless my guitar sells quickly. Thanks for your reply, really appreciate it

    Ahh I should have checked your location. Reverb might also be a good source and you can set it up to send you updates when a new one is posted.

    And I waited almost 2 years until I found my laguna model but I was also extremely picky.

    @Mattykoda cheers for the advice, I've setup an alert on reverb now, hopefully one comes up and I can join the club
