    I don't know what the weight difference of the 'new' neck is, but my oceanburst HT7 comes in just shy of 3 kilos - guessing it's about the same for the new ones.

    Just arrived today. It’s definitely more tangerine and neon, blinding but it’s great! Plays like a dream!

    I’m sad they didn’t do an 8 string pro model.

    I'm going to hazard a guess that the reason for that is that Misha/Periphery aren't known for 8 string work bar the odd song here combined with the market for 8s being pretty small and the number of guitars required to keep the price down enough to be palatable to the market probably wouldn't sell.

    It's an unknown number that we'll probably never learn however I'd imagine the 6 string Misha's in both Pro and USA models outsell the 7 string models. Or I could be completely wrong on everything I just posted haha.

    FYI GC and musicians friend are running the 6 and 7 older pro models on clearance. Ended up ordering a white 6 string cause I had a gift card and I figured it could be a good mod guitar if I like it. For less than $450 shipped I can’t argue with that.

    You know what I'd love to do... I'm not a fan of the neck profile, it has too big of shoulders to me. So I'd love to buy a very cheap pro series and shave the shoulders down a little bit to make it more a super thin C shape.

    That wouldn’t be bad idea. The neck profile is one of my favorite things about the guitar. Having 2 USA models it will be cool to compare them even though they are in another class from each other.

    I just want to know if the neck profile is exactly the same between the Pro and USA series. I've tried asking before but no one seems to know the answer. I've only tried a Pro series and couldn't stand the neck profile.

    I believe they are the same. I will report back and let you know once I get it.

    @Albake21 got it yesterday and can confirm the neck profile is the same. Went back and forth between the 2 USA models I have and the import just to make sure. Overall I'm pretty impressed with it so far. It needs a good set up and some love but for the price I was expecting that. Surprisingly the fretwork is better than the last two schecters I bought. Will post a NGD when I have some more time available.
