    To this day, anytime I see talk of first act I wonder why anyone is talking about the Maroon 5 guy’s $100 Target guitars.

    Always wondered what those First Act 9 strings were like but never seen one in the wild.

    I think they only made the ones for Bill, Brent, and Matt.
    The sig looks cool, I’m interested. Still gassing for a Yamaha SG2000 since my deal with ishibashi fell through. The prices are stupid now.

    I would bite the bullet and just get an SG1000, but my GAS money is allocated for an RRR explorer (year long wait).

    Nope. There were a few other DC9s made. All custom ordered obviously because something like that isn’t really suitable to be a production model. (Not enough interest in the market.)

    Nick Sadler of Daughters still has his absolutely legendary DC9 and posted some photos of it on his Instagram fairly recently. (It’s instantly recognizable.) Seems like he is breaking it back out.

    John Baizley of Baroness also had a custom DC9 in addition to the crazy DC6/DC12 double-neck guitars that he had commissioned. (One red and one white.) The FACS actually had an exact duplicate of one of Baizley’s DC guitars that they sold off.

    Matt Schulze (musician and actor) also had a black DC9.

    And I guess it goes without saying that I actually had one pass through my hands a long time ago. I’ve seen one or two come and go throughout the years. (Seen one DC12 come and go as well.) Rare as can be though, as you can imagine.

    I think the closest I've seen to one besides someone famous was Does It Doom bought a 12 string one and took 3 of the strings off.

    Right here.

    I've personally thought that this guy was kind of annoying (especially because I tried to deal with him on Reverb once), but it seems like over the past year with the pandemic/quarantine, he has done what a lot of other YouTube content creators have also done: taken all of the available free time to improve their content by conforming to the formula for YouTube videos.

    The only other ESP Double Cut I know is The Custom Shop 7 string that belongs to Ben Savage from Whitechapel

    That double cutaway style looks a little awkward (at least to me). For me, the best double cutaway style guitar in terms of looks are the Hamer SAT series, aside from the SG of course

    It used to be a standard model in 2010 (seems to be the only year in production), but it's not in the USA catalog probably because of copyright issues.

    Here's the 2010 export model catalog:

    So is that mean its just a one off custom and not a signature?
