    Only on the condition that it didn't have inlays.

    But, yeah, I would love to see a new Kelly model, or multiple for that matter. Definitely the best Jackson shape.

    Really hoping to see more love for the Kelly, especially as a 7.

    What bridge is that? It’s not the Hipshot Contour 7. I cant tell if it’s the elusive Gotoh 510 7-string.

    If it’s not the Gotoh, then it may well be one of the import trems and it seems likely that Angel’s sig will be MiM. I kinda doubt that Charvel would have fabricated its own OEM 7-string trem.

    What a disappointment this has turned into. No Floyd and an import? In fairness, I’ve never actually heard him or seen his name outside of forums, so I don’t know if he actually uses them, but I assumed I’d least have a Floyd based on the pics of the Custom Shops I’ve seen posted. Oh well, his guitar, his specs—but there goes my interest.

    From what he said the initial licensed Floyd was a no-go. And his second test model the green one was supposed to be a hipshot. IIRC his custom with the natural top has a gold Floyd now right? I recall him mentioning there may be some minor tweaks left. Perhaps the bridge is it?

    Who knows guys, that’s just my speculation. There is a Gotoh 510 7-string trem that is available to OEMs (they won’t sell direct to customers for whatever reason). So maybe that is it, or maybe Hipshot is doing their flat plate trem for 7s now.

    But from what I can tell from the vid, it’s at least possible that it’s the bridge that some of the older imports used years back.

    I haven't seen one of those since the old Conklin Groove Tools 7s.

    Doesn't Jackson and Charvel make some of their bridges in house? Or do they just rebadge existing hardware?

    Angel's always super clear about his gear. The second proto has a Hipshot Contour, so I'd expect that's what'll be on the model.

    That green guitar above does not have a Hipshot Contour. Is there another one?

    I think their 6-stringnon-fine-tuner locking trem is in-house, I think. But that one doesn’t look locking.

    I think this means it's a Gotoh, but also could be referring to the entire guitar (he read the question as, "is that the new sig (guitar)?").

    NICE. That’ll be a cool trem. Some Japanese OEMs have used them before or something very similar.

    This was his second proto. I'm not sure if he had it painted or there's a third, but if there's a third, he hasn't added it to his gear list yet.

    Could have just had them refinish it. He did have his first proto refinished from black to sage metallica green:

    Basswood body with maple top on the second. Also, the second has a roasted maple neck with maple fretboard.

    Does anyone remember if Jackson released their lineup early last year or did they make us wait until the show?

    Oh and I'll take the hit here. Get your laughing hats on. I like Dinkys. Ones with reverse headstocks. Oh and those custom shop ow Williams soloist carved tops are always nuts and I would sell a boat load of my collection for one if I liked the finish. That's a pipe dream through.

    Speaking of which, their USA select shop REALLY needs an upgrade. Were still printing forms?

    Sorry ... so much to say about Jackson....

    Just FYI, here’s a pic of the Gotoh 510 7-String
    [​IMG]

    Looks very much like the tremolo on the pics and vid of Angel’s guitar. That would be great, and if this is trem, I would think it’s likely to be a US made guitar. But who knows.
