    The guitar is way to pointy for me but I love it. Looks great and the details ooze quality.

    That's how you do it with the rechargeable battery pack

    You drill a hole on the control cavity plate, stick some double-sided tape on the charger port and battery pack (IIRC it's included with the charger), and you install it with the USB port going into the hole.

    That blue one has the USB Jack Charger! Look closely the rectangle port above the jack output!

    Been down this road recently. It won't fit at all. I've tried every single combination of using a 9v or any type of battery pack. Absolutely nothing will fit into this world's smallest cavity I've ever seen. The absolute only way this can work is doing some routing.

    Curt Where we're going we don't need neck pickups.

    Open coil fishman pickups... That appear that they would fit in any old 7 string pickup route. This pleases me.

    Crap. If there is no hope for the mkII then then the mkI is definitely out.

    Crap. I can only imaging the NT is gonna be $4k + then. I was hoping it would come in at $3500

    Back to plan B, maybe.

    Not even a neck through? They must be insane...

    Looks like any other Korean made veneer top guitar. For $3500 I could go literally anywhere. I could custom order a Vik, Decibel, BRJ, Sherman, Kiesel or any of a host of other boutique builders and come out cheaper.

    I know you aren't serious, but there is a neck-thru version coming out. :lol:

    I think that's his dig at people complaining in the Chapman thread about the price of their new British Standard line.

    Yeah I'm actually foaming at the ass for that new MkIII bolt on. I've always dreamed about a guitar with the thin body of an Ibanez S but the outline shape of an RG. This is pretty close. The normal open coil pickups have turned me back on to trying Fishmans. The bridge looks super comfortable.

    Yes I know. I saw it and even replied to him. :p

    And I agree with the Fishmans. I hope the open-coil option becomes standard and not just a high-end option.

    I sure hope so

    That would make it less expensive than the Nick Johnston sig... highly unlikely
