    You know it... :agreed:

    I'm pretty sure only Angel Vivaldi has one at the moment, though...

    Alright, I feel dumb but that body looks "RG" to me which threw me off. Thanks for the verify.

    My WR-1 is probably the first victim of Kondo's incessat desire to reduce entropy in the universe. If you want it...

    Want the Type O-style feedback without drilling and routing my existing guitars with Sustainers.

    Lately I've been having REAL bad OG 90's Universe GAS. A PWH would be out of the question given how high the prices go for. But an old green dot or silver dot...oh the GAS hurts.

    [​IMG] big want because the price is right

    Already have one of these on the way, just need to get it in my hands.

    Okay, so I'm a huge revocation fanboy and I currently want this just so I have a guitar dedicated to revocation covers. I would have bought it instead of the SLS elite simply because the warrior is one of the all time coolest guitar shapes, but the 25.5" scale just falls a little short for me for my primary tuning.

    Like, I already own an EC-401B.

    But the Breaking Benjamin fanboy in me wants to finally own a Ben Burnley sig model.

    I would probably go with my tried-and-true EMG 81/60 set, although I'm deffo curious about the Dominions.

    Although they have to be red. :squint:

    Had to do a double take, this looks exactly like my Voodoo Les Paul

    81/60 is also a good way to go. I just really dig the dominions in baritones.

    Got my eyes on 2 reasonably priced late 70's early 80's Ibanez musician basses. Ones an mc924 (Ibanez p/j style pickups) and the other is an mc800 (1 humbucker with a 3 position switch). I really feel like the humbucker in the mc800 would suit the sound I'm going for better, but it's also more expensive & in rougher condition, despite retailing for less than the mc924. At the same time though I feel like the 924 would still get me where I wanna be as the bass I'm currently playing has a p/j configuration.

    I'm definitely not metal enough for a pointy guitar, but I have to say that finish with that shape is sexxxaaay. Probably best I can't get Sweetwater financing.....

    The DD Warrior is a dope guitar. Just curious, what tuning do you play that you need a longer scale? 25.5" is good through G Standard (C standard + G 7th). Do you play lower than this?

    I play in drop G# most of the time, but to get an acceptable tension at that tuning on the G# I have to use a .074 and I REALLY hate how dull it sounds.
    .070 is as thick as I can go without hating the tone of the string. At a 26.5" scale a .070 gives me an acceptable 16.7 lbs of tension without sounding too dull.

    And occasionally I tune to drop F# where it takes a .080 for acceptable tension at even 26.5" scale

    It will be good shit but speaking as a musician guitar owner they had lots of proprietary parts so make sure everything works on the one you get

    Good lookin out. They're both totally complete but that's definitely good to know.

    No joke man I'm going to have to put dowels in the pickup route to install a normal pickup ring because the super 88s are so weird and huge

    Back in the day I think they called that innovation :lol:

    Edit: the big pickups I mean. I guess the towel is modern day innovation
