    Yeah, I think the Supreme was only exclusive to Phil.

    No new hardtail options at all for Charvel? All the new ones have trem. So sad... :'(

    I absolutely love the colour on the Angel sig. If they would make that colour available for the DK24 HT then I would be over the moon. The deep purple metallic on the new FR San Dimas also looks great! Charvel needs a colourful hardtail in their catalog. I think the DK24 HT could really use a colour update, but the San Dimas HT is only available in two even more boring colours (white and natural).

    If they had just closed it and made it a single cut it wouldn’t be that bad.

    But yeah he likes the necks to be juicy. Not my taste.

    lol that silver logo looks tacky. the x custom shops with silver inlays and logos did it better.

    I would probably screw that logo off if I had that guitar.

    So the DD WR7 more compelling than I expected + the red crackle is sweet.

    A fairly underwhelming lineup in all honesty.
    The Loomis is really cool and all.......but that price seems crazy for what you're getting.

    I was really hoping that we would finally see a Baritone 6 this year.
    The USA B7 is such a great guitar, and I would love to see a 6 string model.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the prices on Jackson's site have always been pre MSRP and not the actual store price.

    Yeah, none of those are street prices. Not that they aren't still expensive.

    As much as I like Jackson guitars, I think if I wanted one I'd shop for used ones as they're quite cheap here and the new line up does not really offer anything that I see as an improvement over older Jackson guitars... :2c:

    Even with store prices those guitars are way to expensive. Hell you almost can build one in the custom shop rather than buy a USA signature. The Loomis for example is just a regular Kelly KE2 with some very minor improvements.

    Dang underwhelmed as well
    Loomis is ok
    The crackle was a missed opportunity
    Demolition is cool though

    Debatable if they’re improvements. I don’t hate the guitar, but the trem is a downgrade, and the flat top/finish are at least in theory cheaper to produce. You could definitely get a really nice Custom Select with all the options you want for cheaper.

    For them perhaps, it may just be testing the waters too.
    I just see crackle+gotoh+dimarzio= win for far less than a custom
