    That thing should be the illustration for "neck dive" in a guitar dictionary.

    It's got a lot of weight on the other side of the bridge so I'm not sure how that could be a top contender for neck dive. Of course, strap position plays a role.

    Past week I found myself GASing a lot about the PRS Dustie Waring, which is out of my range
    But I pretty made up my mind that my next guitar will be a PRS with maple neck, hopefully semi-hollow
    I'm watcfing closely the second hand market

    I've been thinking a lot lately about the guitar that got me into boutique guitars, that I gawked at while only being able to afford an epiphone les paul... the McNaught Phoenix Rising:

    Though my taste in inlays have definitely become more minimalist...

    So you guys know how I have a massive appetite for anything with a sustainiac and in purple? And how much I love my Blackjack A6? Well look at what sweetwater has to do.

    It's literally perfect. I even like the Full Shred and I'm not a Duncan guy. It even has binding.

    They are out there at reasonable prices. You just have to keep looking. I got one of the older ones past Christmas. It's a great guitar. The bolt on, maple board, satin finish and the Floyd give its a really different vibe from my 24. Also, old CE24s can be found for cheaper than this model. Those are pretty different in feel but I think with some tweaks, mainly the pickups you could get somewhat close to the Dustie if that's what you're after.

    I'm looking for something out of pure shred manufacturing, to have a bit of variety
    If I pick a Fender guitar it'll surely be a Tele before a Strato

    Can never go wrong with a tele IMO. Good luck with the search!

    For some reason, these Asato Suhrs are the only use of gold hardware that I’ve ever liked. Any little individual changes to the current package —a natural headstock, for example?— and I think I’d go back to thinking gold looks tacky. But it’s just perfect.

    Agree. IMO that 3A roasted birds-eye serves to further nail down the stunning overall aesthetic as does the binding that frames the whole thing like a work of art.

    As of Monday the black SL7 is gone from the website. Maybe thats a good sign for the Loomis or maybe they are just making room for the more expensive transparent finishes.

    I received my black one today and while I haven't spent much time with it...so far, so great. Will see how it sets up with my strings and tuning but so far I'm happy with the fit and finish. If the truss rod behaves it should be a pretty great guitar and as it came pretty well set up with low action I see no issues. Only issue is I might have to the shim the low E saddle on the Floyd which I'm not bothered by in the least on a sub 1K import. I'll set it up further and spent some quality time with it this weekend. Nice to have a Jackson again...been a long time.

    Dean is killing it with these. They're everything I would've wanted the Mustaine guitars to be.

    I want the black V
