    Yes I am. What matters is that it's a sick axe.

    Just do what we all do with JP7 and block the trem and play it like the hardtail is secretly is.

    You're right! But after so many prototypes of the guitar I expected a better result ... the same Vivaldi in the video presentation says that Gotoh 510 7 bridge is the best bridge he has ever tested, even better than the hipshot contour bridge (which I have checked and has the "base" more narrow) ... Maybe only my brain fart but if I spend € 1200 I look that everything is "perfect".

    It would be too much to ask that you take some pictures of the back of the guitar without the cover? Thank you very much
    The gods of metal will reward you :D

    Don't let an improper route cloud your judgement of a fantastic trem. Seems like Charvel went with a fairly shallow route, maybe Angel prefers it that way?

    A lot of guys sacrifice a little trem travel for a big ass trem block. As I said the trem has plenty of travel for me. If you want to do Vai shit get a different guitar. It seems to work fine for Angel as well.

    This is a fine specimen of an instrument.
    I love the simplicity and the only thing about it that I don't prefer, which is purely cosmetic, is the reversed headstock. I would prefer it as a normal config, otherwise, this is a great guitar.

    I actually am debating selling my JP 7 buying one of these and pocketing the difference primarily on the fact that this has better upper fret access and a smaller heel and pocketing the difference. I only play in B standard anyways. It’s not a top of mind thing right now and the JP 7 is otherwise amazing. But it has crossed my mind. And if they announce more colors then whose to say....
