    I probably shouldn't expect the viper 7B to neckdive less than the 25.5 inch version, right

    I want a sevenstring, and while there have been a ton of cool announcements around NAMM, the viper is the one I'm most likely going to be able to afford.

    I feel like an opportunity was missed. They should have done this on an explorer with the lightning emanating from an inlay on the body that says "EET FUK"

    Invest in a good leather strap. It significantly helps and is easier on your shoulder.

    Right click -> view image -> delete the .jpg and .gif from the URLs. Generally works for all unseeable pics.

    It's a screenshot from this video at 6:59 and a gif of Anthony Hopkins

    It does sound insane. I really love so much about this guitar but goddamn, will the wrong headstock ever grow on me? I have doubts. I do appreciate that they were trying to find some practical reason for why the reverse in line makes more sense against every aesthetic argument saying they are wrong. But the finish and logo do look cool.
    Also, I always hear ENGLs and they sound good, but the Powerball V2 I had briefly was so disappointing. I still get a twinge of "maybe it was me" when I hear them, but there are a billion different options on that head and the only way I got it to cut live against a 6505 was basically max the mids and cut back the lows to almost zero. Did not like.

    From what I've been told about Engls, judging the entire Engl lineup on the Fireball or Powerball is like judging the entire Marshall lineup on the JCM900 series. They're not BAD and they do have their fans, but they're probably the worst amps they make/made.

    Although I actually do kinda like the JCM900 series.

    Isn’t that an Ironball she’s playing out of? Mini-Fireball, right?
    It sounds mean as shit.

    Not to derail the thread further, but color me interested in the 60w version of this. Sounds huge

    I wish they would cover the B-1005SE in the videos...that's probs the product I'm looking forward to the most, aside from that purple SC model. That purple SC model man...

    not sure what it was based on but I thought the one I had was pretty awesome. The only EL84 lunchbox head I had that I really enjoyed.

    There is no finish, body construction, extra string tension, or logo that can save that guitar with that headstock. It's just plain fugly...
