    As a production model. Fender, Jackson, and Charvel always sells their custom shop show-offs at NAMM.

    :yesway:
    BTW, there probably is only one of those. From what I understand, shops put their cards on a guitar they want (to resell), and there is a drawing to see which shop will get it.

    ...., the MF-1 has a legit maple top... Might be that over the Joe D sig.

    Wait, what? The KEXT -series kelly is a hardtail (TOM), even though the pic on Jackson's website shows the trem version.

    I was just GASsing for a hardtail Kelly... if you ditch the neck PU you've almost got a poor man's KE1T. :cool:

    The new rr24 with ash top will be mine. They guessed almost everything of what I had with custom shop rr in mind! Or maybe I'm just gonna grab a used japanese rr24. We'll see, but I'm getting rhoads this year!

    While at the same time releasing production model slab top Kelly's, Rhoads and King V. You win some you lose some.

    I bet the kiesel copy is built by the new builder named Joe Williams. Last year he somehow copied JP6, this year he copied Kiesel :noplease:

    The extreme angle on all the strings at the nut can't be good for tuning stability.

    Well,

    Judging from the drought apparently you have to travel interdimensionally to get the materials, then mail away for some things.

    Its all very technical with graphs and charts and such.

    Cut them some slack, man. Its only been 30 Years. Sheesh. :spock:

    The Music Zoo is getting that one and the build tag doesn't say who built. They must be ashamed of it also

    Anyone see the specs for the Mick Thomson limited sig? I am assuming its standard soloist specs with a hard mounted floyd but was just curious

    I hear you brother! Haven't felt so strongly about either this or the Alexi-ish sig in a long time. Going to save some pennies and spring for one for sure.:shred:

    ITS NOT THE ALEXI SIG!

    ITS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE ALEXI SIG!

    JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE YELLOW BEVELS DOESNT MEAN ITS....

    Sorry couldn't resist. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Yeah yeah, but for me any RR with yellow bevels, gold hardware and a FR will essentially be an Alexi sig, or a wannabe sig. I'll bet you like one Dollar that this model would have never been made if Alexi hadn't made them famous.
