    Whoah, he was not messing around! :lol: I do not mind Creed actually, they had some nice melodies even if I am not a fan. Still, you got some free death metal cds out of it, even if they are christian ones. Never heard of such bands myself, only some black metal ones like Order of Apollyon, which confused me as members of Balrog were in them.

    Well personally, I would not go (for example) to a Romanian family of a Ceaușescu regime starvation victim and say that or to a Polish family that had one of its member taken to a concentration camp never to return or be seen again and argue semantics. Sounds like being apologetic to me to promote an ideology which brought havoc, "This serial killer killed 8 people while the other 10, this makes his ideology better".
    Anyway, wrong thread for this discussion maybe.:2c:

    It reminds me of the lifelong quest of one coyote to catch and eat a certain bird in the desert of the American West.

    The only thing holding it back from being worth thousands is a Carl Thompson branding.

    This is from CDPR E3 Demo Booth. The guitar itself isn't bad, but that bridge system/position... Headless saddle, into angle break, into another saddle (under the cover, by the looks of it). Ouch.

    It looks like a bulky attempt at micro tuning...

    I thought that was an Ivanez prototype ready for NAMM.

    ... and so I was surfing facebook's marketplace and found this gem... it looks to be fairly well built, but it also looks silly as f**k. The selector switch choice looks interesting for those who just use black or white... I mean, neck or bridge... no pics of the back. facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/339961493262088/

    Pickguard's really guarding that one.

    Yup, the unit insignia on the guitar is from JG52, they were never in North Africa. Your example is from a 109 attached to JG27 that was based in the North African theater.

    Sword is from JG52, never in North Africa. Palm tree with Swastika is a variation of the Deutches Afrikakorps insignia.

    Yeah, like it's going to work wonders for the jack/cable having the player's arm there all the time...

    Not to mention the color scheme and the number of screws used to nail the pickguard down... or the headstock pointy design (or lack of it)...

    I have to assume this was a prototype and the production model will incorp all changes gathered from the touring and studio samples sent out.

    I feel like the Jack is set far enough back that it-s not in one's arm space.

    Yeah, but let the player be a little more enthusiastic and he/she might easily rip off the cable from the jack. It's clearly a bad position, imo...

    Found another gem, by the choice of the pickup selector and headstock, they are from the same builder. Unfortunately, This one doesn't have a full photo, just this partial body and the headstock... the background looks to be the same also...
