    I actually really loved the Helix for high gain. The mark IV and BE100 are awesome. I think I slightly prefer the Helix BE as well.

    And yeah it's a treat to operate. I wasn't tethered to a computer like I was with the Ax8.

    4. artificially scarce for some fucking reason

    EDIT: Or maybe 500 is a good healthy number? Maybe the "limited to" is working its magic on me, I don't know how many guitars sell "worldwide" much less this niche model.

    :shrug: I don't know, metallica shit is still pretty popular from what I can tell. I don't even care that it's het's sig model, I just want it because it's baritone and purple (specs that are borderline unicorn-esque in explorer land)

    Metallica has plenty of fans, but ESP/LTD should have a pretty solid grasp on how much Snakebytes move. 500 of a baritone explorer seems like they know what they're doing.

    Just one page back, but after all the shit some of those newest exhibition pieces got for their odd decision to do a glowing phantasm burst, this one is pretty redeeming. That's some Daemoness level wood whispering in my book. I can imagine that being a pretty divisive one, not saying I'd order it, but I appreciate it.

    Tested that badboy briefly in a store today while my friend was testing some Dingwall basses (which were pretty sweet as well) and my mind is blown away. While the finish is not my favorite, that is the most comfortable and solid guitar that I have ever held in my hands, by far. The action was so low yet it played perfectly. Makes my Prestige RGs feel like starter pack guitars. If I understood correctly what the clerk said, it's a one-off build that they bought from some mass so there shouldn't be many more copies out there if any. I'm literally going to eat nothing but porridge until I can afford that. :yum:

    I had one that looked exactly like this. Sold it not long after I bought my apartment due to my solicitors fucking things up and lumping me with a big bill to pay. The only guitar I've sold that I've gotten really upset about going. I had it for about 4/5 years and it was my baby.

    Well the spiked gauntlet is usually enough of a buffer so that you don't feel it.

    I was going to follow up with a pic of Trey and some other comment about how it's meant to make you feel like you're slitting your wrist, but then I found this drawing. It derailed me, but I don't think I had a better follow up really.

    I would murder for a sea breeze or stealth black one :lol: But only if it comes with actual humbuckers. Very comfortable playing guitars!
