    It's getting to that time of the year and with Schecter/ESP/Ibanez dropping some sneak peaks for NAMM I thought it'd be an idea to get the ball rolling for Jackson/Charvel.

    So far there hasn't been anything either on any social media outlets, there's been a few instagram posts advertising models released in mid 2017 but nothing hinting for NAMM yet. Anyone else heard anything?

    I’ll go on record guessing all Charvel pro mods having carved heels. Angel sig. Probably SD1 or So Cal 7s.

    Jackson... Hopefully a Davidson Pro Series. Probably not.

    I'm assuming a Charvel 7 either new finish on the Tele or a So Cal. If it's a new model, I hope they don't screw it up with too many frets but I assume they will.

    Angel didn't make it sound like they were close to finalizing his specs but who knows.

    Even a more basic USA Davidson would be nice, I'm pretty sure it's the most expensive USA Artist 7 on offer by at least a grand. Can't remember but there was a good 6-12 months between both Broderick's and Misha's USA and Pro Series lines being launched, this might be the same deal. I'm pretty sure the only way to get a Warrior 7 at the moment is CS.

    Chavel 7 would be delicious!

    I would be pretty shocked if we didn't end up seeing the official release of the next-gen USA Juggernaut. Misha has been posting a lot of his current one. Roasted/flamed maple fretboard, offset dot inlays, flamed maple top, silver pickup covers, and no neck binding seem to be the major changes. I doubt there will be a "Bulb" version, given the tepid response to the inlay on the current iteration (though it's quite nice and well done).

    I'd guess maybe a new variant of scott ian V, a import serie of Mick thomson (but if it'd mean losing the pups and the red color why bother), I'd like to see the Broderick's take on the rhoads V (but not sure that broderick is really in the spotlight since he left Megadeth...)
    Relauching the warrior would be great too....
    Suprise me, as ESP and Ibanez are boring as hell..

    An angel model would be unlikely as he said he wouldn’t expect to “have the time” to work on what I assume to be the business side of it until something like next summer. He has said on Instagram that he’s pretty sure the current quilted maple & gold one is likely finalized.

    I fully expect to see a few more Charvel 7’s.

    Angel told me 2019 for his guitar when I asked him at the Toronto show.

    I really hope this is true! The new satin/roasted maple one you are talking is absolutely beautiful. I also hope for some more changes/additions to the pro line, although I really doubt it. We should be getting something from Jackson soon.

    Hopefully something new in the Warrior/Kelly department.

    Agree. That's why I'm collecting Jacksons. I love the body shapes, who wants a bunch of superstrats lol.

    For Charvel to come back down to earth on their custom shop prices...

    I know it probably isn't going to happen, but I would love it if Charvel brought back the Skatecaster.

    I want a Pro series revocation 7. But that just seems so unlikely as it would basically be their best-specc’d Warrior below the USA line.

    I talked to a Jackson Rep at a clinic back in September and this is what I got out of everything: There will be more Mick Thomson sigs, and there will be more options for the custom select line it sounds like, but that is all I got.

    Vaguely similar if you reverse the body, but I'm not at all sure it's an apt comparison.

    If you reverse the body they’d be even more different..

    I would like to express an almost infinite amount of yes to this.
