    Is this one made in USA?

    Little OT: I'm wondering why he chose a bolt-on instead of a neckthru...

    It's just what he prefers. I tend to prefer bolt-ons as well.

    It is USA made, it's the RC7, not RC7X. I like it but I think I need the graphic to disctract me from the odd body shape.

    And how!

    Rich at IbanezRules ordered six of them, and five are already sold. $6,000 a piece. Jeebus, you can get one of the originals for much cheaper than that.

    As for Dean, I actually like this one, The Deceiver FG. The body shape is a pretty nicely done LP variation and the headstock looks cool too. Plus the OFR of course. Wouldn't mind one of these!

    Looks good to me, I didn't like that other bridge on the prototype. Wish there was a blackout there instead of an EMG so you wouldn't have a rectangle and an oval hole but alas, he endorses the bass housing guys. I'd switch the toggle and pot and add at least one more control between them personally.

    Ya know, I agree, it 'is' a nice looking guitar, very classy (although I think they should have used black screws in the pickup rings). If it came in 7... it could be a viable option.

    :noway:

    I was really looking forward to seeing that and now that I do, I think it looks revolting. Apart from the body shape, that arrowhead bridge plate looks cheap as hell, and I really don't see the point of the emg single coil, nor the weird selector switch position.

    That ibby RGD, however is gorgeous, but then again, like a whole bunch of ibby 7's it's just plain black which I find really boring.

    Perhaps this is why it's the Devin Townsend signature and not the [insert forum member here] signature. :shrug:

    I don't think it's too bad, and I'm not usually a fan of Vs. I'm curious to see how that neck single sounds.

    If you can find an original non-MKR for under 6K that isn't beat to hell and back you better jump on it.

    The last minty (not fully mint by any means) ATD I saw for sale went for $7500, and that was nearly a year ago. Once a collector/player grabs one, they hold on for dear life. :lol:

    Looks good to me. But then again, I'm an absolute whore for 7-string V's...

    Dean used to make this shape as a 7 sometime around 2001 but it had a different name they definitely need to give it a re spec and bring it back as it's one of the few LP style 7's.

    I seem to be one of the minority here as I like what I've seen of the Devin Townsend sig so far, but does anyone else think it looks a lot like the Dime-V that Washburn put into production during Dimes last year as an endorsee?

    I hear you... I need the graphics too. I didn't realize how odd looking the body was...

    Yep...and these are destin to do the same, although it makes you wonder if these will drive the prices down a little on the origionals since it was thought that Darren wasn't doing this anymore and that they were never going to be made again. :scratch:

    Problem is the one Devin Townsend has been using (to me) looks a thousand times better. I'm not angry by this I'm actually really sad, if it was a clear copy of his I would have bought it in a second, especially seeing as there's no "LOOK I'M A DEVIN TOWNSEND FAN" inlays or such, although being A HUGE DEVIN TOWNSEND FAN I wouldn't mind them either.
