    Yup this is accurate, the one change is that the brushed nickel covers will actually have the black hex screws because they look damn good and subtly match the black hardware, wish mine had those haha.

    Hey @bulb, I'm really curious why you changed from alder to mahogany for the amber and laguna models. Are you just experimenting and adding some variety to your sigs, or got tired of the sound from the alder ones?

    At the $1500 price point, you can buy used USA HT6's, which is what you should do for that money

    It's things like this that make me cross over to the states for a holiday guitar trip. Can't find a used USA HT6 for under $3000USD here :(

    I will definitely get a used HT6 this year, shooting for the US Model. The new colors aren't that exciting to me, so I will surely be able to find a nice used one once I get the cash together. And my Pro Series 7 String will get a BKP.

    I'm hoping we find some people selling them for either the newer series or other guitars at NAMM lol. I'd happily buy a used ebony one.

    Just trying to create a bit more differentiation between the lines. The Basswood is super spanky and has wonderful attack, so I figured the maple capped ones could go for a full and purry kinda quality. Alder was kinda like the basswood, and we experimented with Ash as well, but ultimately Mahogany won out as it had a very different but very pleasant character, and contrasted the Basswood perfectly.

    Yeah I think I'm planning too as well. You can find the solid color HT6's starting at about $1500 and the trans top ones at about $2k. The real question is do I think the trans tops are worth the extra dough, or can I convince my wife that they are ha!

    From having owned both, I think the trans tops are worth it. The matte finishes just feel kinda cheap to me. I'm not really into fancy tops (especially quilt), but the finish just feels so much better. I don't like how matte finishes age either, typically.

    I'm also not someone who buys into the wood species making a difference in tone, especially when you're playing with a decent amount of gain and pickups as distinctive as Juggernauts - they all sounded equally bad to me (or good, if you like Juggernauts). I love mine though, once I swapped pickups. I think they really are a steal for the used prices they're going for these days.

    Apparently I have to look harder because I've never seen a solid color for $1500...that's tempting.
