I remember when these were announced a couple years ago. This and the Lemon one both went on my short list and when this thing popped up nearby I jumped on it. I was able to make a great deal on it and its great. The neck is a fair bit beefier than the Wizards on my RGs but very comfortable. The bridge is MM branded and comes stock with a pop-in arm and a brass block which is nice and after 20 some years of playing RGs this is the first floating bridge I have had that was not recessed, so it won't be needing the Tremol-No I had lying around. Overall this is one of the nicer instruments I have owned and if you want a quirky take on a JEM, be on the lookout for one of the 74 others out there.

On to the pics.

Man EBMM is really getting liberal with that BFR designation. Not even a roasted flamey neck on that thing. Still a nice guitar though

Yeah, I think they have extended it to just small batch custom runs in general. The neck is pretty flamey in person. Either way I just wanted an American made super strat and love neon.

Yeah they do a batch of different guitars quarterly, usually 4 different models in different finishes etc. These were flamed necks, they just varied wildly from guitar to guitar.

Yeah, they def use more eye catching flame elsewhere. I do think for these two it was a specific choice to match the JEMs/RG550s they are paying homage to.

Very cool! I'm an Ibanez player too but the Cutlass (in the charcoal sparkle or the dropped copper finish) is one I would try to grab right away to fill the more traditional Strat itch. The lime and lemon small batch runs are very fun!

RGs are the guitars I have been in love with since day one and the two I own now will never leave my possession, but I fully endorse the Cutlass. Despite the color scheme this is NOTHING like a JEM.
