    Yeah. And I'm guessing the wait time is probably ridiculous too.

    I have a custom shop order sitting around 2.5 years from when I submitted it. I don't see build times getting shorter over the last couple years either.

    It's not even a pricing thing.

    They won't build that for anyone but an endorsed artist for the foreseeable future.

    The full custom shop experience is pretty much Ibanez LACS right now. No "Masterbuilt" slots are going to open for retail orders.

    I know there's a guy with a Masterbuilt slot that's been waiting almost four years.

    I love Jackson, but 4 years with no end in sight? I would be fighting for my money back at that point.

    Guessing that’s like a $10K guitar considering the CS’s latest pricing. For her it’s likely free if she’s endorsed.

    Seems like the Loomis sigs aren't made in Korea anymore. The signed Jeff Loomis Kelly that's being sold for Jason Becker's fundraiser event has an ISJ serial

    At the rate we are going today, the world could come to an end within 4 years! I'm not waiting that long for ANYTHING I want..... :frantic:

    anyone planning to pick up an MJ series? sweetwater has some dinkys in stock now. i haven't seen any real reviews on them aside from the andertons one a while back, but those guys didn't really talk much about the unique specs of these guitars. i will probably grab the white one as its the closest to my dream specs, shame there isn't a 7 string version.

    Oh yeah, I've got one of these on my radar but I'm going to wait and see what the consensus is first. I think you should grab one and then report back :D

    Unless her name is Ian, Broderick, or Mansoor, she's not getting shit for free. When we were endorsers, we were basically getting them for cost, or 40% of MAP.

    So that guitar was probably $5.5K, her price. My SLS-7 would be just about $4K and I paid $1800 for it 20 years ago.

    EDIT:

    Just found a pic of the 7 on the Music Zoo website with the info on the back of the headstock. (It wasn't on the Sweetwater, Chondro, or other site pics.) It's South Korean. A nice surprise.

    _______________________________________________________________________

    Question for the Jacksophiles:

    I think I read that the Crackle finish Pros are made in China. Can you guys point me to where the other Pro Series are made? I'm specifically wondering about the new DK Modern 6 and 7 with Evertunes.

    I'll probably pick up a DKR MJ in black in a few months. I will just wait for reviews first. Or maybe wait for the next release when they sort out why the black one has white binding on the headstock and none around the fretboard. It's a stupid design.

    At least the white one has black binding throughout.

    Does anyone know if the Charvel Spectrum is a good guitar?

    I'm trying to trade my Schecter Hellraiser c7 and was offered the Charvel. It looks like a sick guitar. I just can't find much info about them online.
