    Yeah that thing is fucking killer looking. I wasn't into the reverse headstock for the longest time, but seeing a good pic of the whole thing, it works.

    I think this is my favorite new production 7 so far.

    Looks absolutely killer. Really loving the thought of getting a seven string strat for a while now. Not too big on the color though, definitely like the gold though. Is that surf green the only color it's coming in? I think white with the gold would have been cool.

    I dig the inlays, and appreciate the tight-around-the-open-coil pickups routes and the recessed trem. The whole thing looks really..."finished" somehow.

    Hmm. I’d have to see more of the upcoming Kiesel Delos too, to see which new 24-fret 7-string Superstrat I prefer.

    I like the Angel’s headstock of course, and the Gotoh trem is boss. And Kiesel headstocks are uniformly pretty terrible. But from what I see I like the Delos body shape better, and could the avoid weird inlay and that color. And the Hipshot trem (presumably available) is a nice piece, too.

    That’s a solid assumption.

    So when does Jackson usually show off their new line up? I'm not usually one to follow them.

    Digging the Angel Vivaldi sig!
    I think a non-reverse headstock would look better but the reverse does work.

    Didn't realize AV uses a Dimarzio Air Norton in the Bridge and Neck. I thought he used a Tone Zone 7 bridge... interesting!

    I've heard the Air Norton is an interesting bridge pickup. Will have to try one out some day.

    On Instagram. Jackson did post a story, not a post.

    I totally agree. I think it’s the modernness of the right routes, the direct mount pups, the inlay pattern, contrasting with the traditional shape and headstock. It’s really a tasteful instrument.

    I'm still afraid it could be the Loomis sig, knowing that with the cygnus, he showed that he sometimes have "strange" tastes in body shape...

    They did a pro series Ferrari red king v with ebony board. Please let them do an identical warrior. Hard tail or Floyd Rose idc. It would be “close enough” either way that I’d buy it. 6 string it A-Ok. Just copy paste the spec sheet to the warrior CNC machine that is either in storage or has been repurposed for the JS line that has every paint job under the sun out currently.

    That Vivaldi sig is pretty cool. I don't dig the seafoam green on it- would look killer in white- but maybe they'll have other finishes.
