    Hey now, it's a racing stripe, they made a decision and it didn't pay. All that stripes is not gold, only falling stars want that mold.

    My bucket list of guitars has shrunken substantially in the last 2-3 years.

    Realistically it's still just a B6 to actually get my hands on one and see what the fuss is about.

    Otherwise, actually speccing out my own CS Mayones would be cool but also $$$ haha

    A nice Solar A1.7 Artist. Basically a superstrat with an evertune.

    Or an Ibanez FR7 with BKP's (Aftermath, Juggernaut or Ragnarok), Evertune, dark green burst over a quilt maple top, ebony fb, that's about it. :)

    This and the schecter 8 string makes my GASSING so hard for a 8 or 7 string telle!

    Played a FGN guitar shortly in a shop in Singapore, felt really solid, quite liked it!

    I have the 6 string version of this in white and it is such a wonderful guitar. Just a metal beast in a classy disguise!

    I've been GASsing for a fanned fret 8 for a long time... but then I tried one (Ibanez RGIF8, I think?) and I hated it, so... :lol: :shrug:

    I think the EQ Guitars FT is pretty cool... could've sworn I saw this in an 8, but can't find it now. Maybe I dreamed it... :lol:

    I can try... I honestly am not sure how much was the guitar, and how much was me. It had EMG 909's, which I can't stand and can't make sound good, and it was a 27-25.5 sweep, which may have thrown me since I'm used to a 28.6 length on my own 8. On the other hand, I have a 25.5 7 that I have no trouble with.

    You know how you pick up done guitars and it's just "hell yeah!"? This was the opposite. The bridge felt weird and cheap, the fretboard felt cramped and uncomfortable, the whole thing felt short and stunted. It's been pointed out to me that that Ibby fan has the neutral fret at 12, which makes the variance at the nut pretty drastic. So, it might be I just don't get along with FF's, or maybe just not THAT FF. YMMV :shrug:

    Now that I have finally completed my first mission, to get all Ibanez models that feel the best to me ( 2 RG970XLs, RG1077XL, RG2027XLS), ive begun my Mayones collecting. Starting with my first 7, once I get her in my possession and see if i fall in love with her, Im gonna get a similar 6. While going through the configurator on their site, heres a post of my specs.

    I should note the app is still in beta so there were some things that didnt save correctly, but aesthetically it looks correct.

    Mahogany body, 5A Flame Maple( i was considering an ebony top but didnt know how itd affect the tone), transparent graphite finish. no binding
    27" scale Wenge/Bubinga bolt on neck, SS frets, super blue Luminlay side dots and fret markers
    Hannes bridge, Graphtek nut, BKP pickups (havent figured out what model yet)
    Push pull volume, 3 way toggle (not blade like shown, im gonna try just a miniswitch later)

    Looks like @LiveOVErdrive has a bevel king contestant...:D

    Those comfort upper mini bevels are beginning to bother me, we can find them in Black Machines, Skervesens, BlackCats, Mayones (?) and so on... come on, can't anyone find a different solution? The Lavoisier law says: nothing is lost, nothing is new, everything is copied... I mean, transformed... copied... what's the difference anyway?

    ill be honest, id prefer those bevels if it means that the body gets to maintain its thickness, unlike for example S models. They sacrifice wood for comfort. Not dogging the design, just doesnt suit me at all.
