    They did some collaborative builds with JML and that's their headstock.

    I've bought a few PRS from them and just snagged a sweet custom 24 WL a week ago. They're setups are always top notch and they've been a pleasure to deal with. One of top two favorite shops along with Axe Palace.

    I think all of the multi-scale PRS 7s I’ve seen have been 24.75-25.5 scales, which is pretty much my dream spec, and the most logical fan for me. I haven’t been too into any of them aesthetically but this one is awful good.

    That's freaking beautiful. I love how the birds are arced instead of just running down the fretboard.

    For me, I just purchased Universal Audio's Ultimate 9 pack of plugins. I think I'm now done as far as plugins are concerned, though those are often famous last words.

    Both Schecter and Jackson did a great job making Explorer clones.

    Yessir. I think that Jackson above was a Namm show model. Haven't seen on like it since.

    Mike Shannon has been on a huge Gibson-ish kick the last few years. Making all kinds of Explorer, round V, and single cuts as his personal project builds for exhibition.

    That's actually one of the most beautiful guitar designs I've seen in a long time. Love how it derives from the Explorer shape, but is it's own thing thanks to the bottom zig-zag. Amazing.

    Definitely a riff on the old Destroyer II:

    :agreed: Exactly that. Phil Collen basically rebuilt his old Destroyer into the Jackson line.

    Speaking of Destroyers...

    ...this is sitting in the usual pawn shop I haunt. Really tempted to get it, but I've already splurged a lot on one vintage Ibanez this year.

    since finding a decent ironbird is fucking impossible anymore, I'm just going to build my own dammit. Thinking of doing a holofoil crackle like this, or maybe a lava crackle.

    I need a blues machine. It's bad. Like I wanna get something that can do all this clean shit I'm doing rn but I cannot live without a floating trem. The best would be a tele with a floyd but those are impossible to find. I'm gonna save like a motherfucker at this point and maybe snag a floyd strat, maybe an LP with a Kahler again.

    My bird is just a little too snappy for perfect jazz tones. It might be the amps too, I'm not sure the Herbert and VH4 are the best for that sound but they do jangle like crazy.

    So this guitar is awesome, this much we know. But typical Jackson fuck up— there’s no pickup selector. It’s listed on the spec sheet, but they forgot to install it. So this guy has to pay someone to add one.

    It might already have a push/push or push/pull selector built in on one of the knobs......
