    Thank God it doesnt have a gold trem!

    But the gold tuners look fuckin amazing! They work very well with the binding. Its perfect!

    Sorry if i missed it, but what was the neck profile and material? The 5pc Maple/Walnut Wizard II-7 neck?

    Please do enjoy the SHIT out of that thing for the rest of us dude, HNGD!

    ^This 100%. There's been a lot of cool LACS's that have come out, but this one by far is the best!!! By far one of the best and most epic NGD's anyone has posted - along with the 8-string Multiverse and Llexi's Horizon III 7-string custom! Very cool and very stoked for ya man. Congrats on the killer new toy!

    But I would have gone for the tuners to match the rest of the hardware too. Gold hardware IMHO tends to wear out and look god awful once the color starts fading out. But it's enough to make it stand out nicely and not over-done. A+ my friend!

    If it's going to be as sick as the Horizon III 7-string you got last time, then it's going to be yet another epic masterpiece to grace our presence! And even though I'm not a fan of the Horizon III body shape, the last one was strait up obnoxious! Will be keeping an eye out for that one also!!!

    Damn, I'd have to put that right up with with Broderick's LACS.

    Holy cows from hell... that thing is a monster! it goes without saying that Jake will NEVER get a sig looking like that... RGA7 with reverse headstock??... I hope to hell he does but he won't, knowing Ibanez and their history regarding 7 sigs.

    Great looking guitar! (needs moar pics though!)


    I thought they didn't use it because it moves too much, and therefor not suitable for touring guitarists.

    LMII say the same thing,

    Wow, RGAs are just pretty, waaay cooler than an RG.

    I'd love to see a shot of the neck joint and the painted neck, too.

    you know you've won, when your
    able to get ahold of custom LACS
    guitars without buying used.
    hate to say it, but it's kind of nice
    that the LACS is so very exclusive.
    it's another reason to push yourself
    farther, cuz the only way to get one
    to your specs is to land a spot on the
    ibby roster.

    trent... err, jake should use it in
    a play through vid of something
    off the new album (froggin' bullfish)..

    or do a long rig rundown with extra
    gratuitous guitar content featuring
    the bands entire stable.

    I forgot to ask, Is this still a bolt on?

    Also just a suggestion. But if you want to further enhance the tuxedo look of the tuning machines sperzel makes black pearloid buttons. Not only would it look nice but with seven of those things making the transition to plastic it actually saves some weight in the headstock and reduces mass.
