    Am I the only one who thinks these are ugly as hell. I'm sure it plays great though.

    So is the "shovel" part on piece that fits into the bass wood body like a puzzle? Serious question I swear

    I saw his clinic a couple weeks ago where he demoed and talked about the Majesty. It makes a lot more since when he explains everything, and really looks good in person. He also played Majesty's exclusively that night at the show.

    You know, after seeing John w/ the guitar it suits him. In fact, the evolution of the guitar has followed a pattern we've seen before...

    Since its a guitar designed like a car i miss a cup holder and some kind of seat heater that warms your belly. This whole stallion and car talk seems kinda childish to me...

    Maybe hes gonna ride on it to his next gig who knows :lol:.

    I personally like the old design, features on the new one maybe nice but just the look of it wont make me GAS for one.

    The black finished one is the classiest of the bunch,but it really lacks that rude and savage shovel design that makes it look so diggin machine.

    I don't think the body has a bad design, it just looks so dumb with that headstock.

    I don't think it's that bad looking, I'd play that one over pretty much any Explorer or Flying V-shape.

    The headstock definitely kills it. The body is meant to be unique, elegant and streamlined - forward looking while the headstock is a vestige of their other models. I like the black though.
