    Yeah they’re typically AFUCKINGLOT and I’m guessing this will be crazy. Which is probably a good thing because ACRAZYFUCKINGLOT will be a nice little remedy for my GAS.

    The Fortin Sigil was announced at $1250 MSRP. I'm guessing it's made overseas, no way in hell could that be made by hand for that price.

    I typically dont like these newer ibanezezez that have the weird double colored bevels but the matte black with natural wood looks classy af!!
    Glad it only comes in 7 so i dont have to spend money i dont have!!
    Was REEEEALLY hoping for an 8 string version of the RGD71ALMS-BAM.
    Seems like ibanez is done with 8 strings, so sad :(
    Id grab the 7 while its still available p_region_RGDR4327_NTF_00_01.png md_1_1_699967.jpg if i knew there was no hope that an 8 would release.

    So the VH Mini isn't exactly a small amp, but it's a real Diezel instead. Here's a picture for scale, and it's about as deep as the VH4, too. diezel.jpg

    Price on VHX is $4990 and European price is yet to be finalized.

    Thanks Steven! GAS cured! Guess this round of Reverb sales will still go towards the guitar I’ve been lusting after for years. :)

    To be fair, it's not a bad price, only $600 over the regular one.

    If it's less than a Big Max, I might go for one.

    I get why he stayed independent for most of his career, but I'm so glad Mike has opted to team up with Boutique. Just the extra resources for features and way more production/distribution available is wild. Cool to bring a classic a little further into the modern age but keeping the spirit the same.

    I love to see these companies pushing tube amp tech with the digital stuff embedded. I still prefer separate units personally, but for heavier giggers, it'd be awesome.

    I think that was expected, no? I mean, the HR25 was in that ballpark, and this is supposedly very similar.

    Man, that baby Diezel looks KILLER! So does the Fortin.

    Oh, there's new versions of the Bogner/Neve pedals with new enclosures and a revised transformer.

    Wow. That Soldano 2x12 Vertical looks good!

    And that matte black RGD wont have shiny spots when you rub against it after hours of playing. The richlite top is not just satin or matte paint.

    $200 extra for the fancy finishes... the "starfall" look is just unreal but not sure if it's worth that much extra.

    SLO-30 sounds more vintage than the 100. hmm
