    that guitar makes me so fucking happy. Looks like a dad rock relic strat, plays like a modern shredder, sounds absolutely fantastic. If you don’t get it, you don’t get it.

    Hey, don't get it in the wrong way. If new David Gilmour signature was a Bc Rich Beast I'd have the same feeling :lol:

    Now, we want the 7-string version of it.

    It is. What makes it even funnier is that Chris Broderick is huge, so this will look super small on him.

    I can't believe they have the audacity to put a nasty laurel fretboard on a $1000 bass

    The NAMM photos gave me big time deja vu. Same stuff as it's been for the last 10 years, except maybe a little different because Charvel >>>> Jackson these days

    They've got the good designs AND the good factory. Why can't they make the Jackson Pros in Mexico?

    so the question is... Will we be able to get it?

    As in, is this a new production model that we will find in stores or is it a one off custom shop repro of your guitar special?

    The FMIC facility in Mexico is setup exclusively for bolt-on guitar construction.

    Could they do neck-through stuff their? Probably if they converted a line or two, but they'd lose efficiency and they need to cut costs to hit unit price targets.

    If you look up videos of the plant you'll see the place is split into three wings: body shop, neck shop, assembly.

    Currently this is a CS special masterbuilt by Red Dave and we are only gonna build them for the shops that order them, though the guitar did get quite a few cards yesterday. If we see enough interest, could be worth discussing tooling up for a USA model. But one step at a time for now, I’m just stoked I have one for myself honestly...

    I like the green HS Charvie and the blue HSS Jackson. Curious about the price, but guesa there will be many fine choices in that price range

    Looks like some of the pro series guitars have switched production to China. [​IMG]

    Nothing from Jackson really got me all that excited tbh, I miss the days of the MiJ Pro series. The new Dave Davidson Warrior does look great though! :)

    I've played great MiC guitars. Better than Indo.

    But given Jackson's spotty import QC... Meh.

    yeah I've played good MIC and MII guitars, but never from Jackson. The ones I've managed to get my hands on are consistently worse than comparably priced schecters/LTDs ime.
