    This would make 2021 worse than 2020 already...

    Seriously. Although they're all made in Indonesia by Cort now, I believe.

    I actually like the roundhorn V with the Explorer headstock. Too bad it will be 5K.

    I like the rounded V a lot. Might get one at some point in the future.

    That’s a LOT of heel for a V. For my preferences that is. His sig has always been like that though. He’s nothing if not consistent with his designs. That silver Kramer could be fun if I find one in stores to try. But it’s immediately up against similar import Jacksons so I hope it holds its own.

    Hmmm, not sure we are looking at the final products here though. They mentioned that the acoustic is a proto and didn't say a word about the Vs.
    What's interesting is what's sitting in Dave's cabinet in the background, L to R:
    1. Gibson Explorer in natural or korina finish
    2. Flying V with 3+3 headstock in natural or korina finish
    3. (Another Kramer KV in silver)
    4. (Another Flying V with 6 in line headstock)
    5. Flying V with white 3+3 headstock
    6. (Another acoustic)

    Is it me, or does the Gibson rounded v look like a 24.75” scale?

    I like all I've seen so far and as a former owner of a DV8 (that I've regretted selling for years!) I've high hopes for the Kramer model but I'm curious as to where Epiphone fit in with things as it seems like Kramer are doing a riff on his Jackson/ESP sigs and Gibson are going in a more classic/Y2KV type direction.
