    Me too, would like an FR version but maybe there is one and I haven't seen it yet. Or....they will slipstream that into the year like they do with a lot of the variants.

    I know the next step will be SVSS E-1. And I'll be waiting.

    I'm more intrigued by the two red knobs and one black knob layout.

    Apparently there are interesting protos incoming.

    Hades series (essentially old Loomis in SLS shape, avaiable with or without FR, in 6 and 7 string version, vampire red and black)

    AND Multiscale Apocalypse series.

    That Hades model looks nice. Seems a bit more stripped down relative to the Loomis. If it were my specs, I would have ditched the neck and headstock binding too.

    Being a proto, who knows. But the satin swamp ash finish looks very nice, and I'd love to see it in green or blue

    Also looks like they're sort of abandoning the old C-1 shape on the Diamond Series for some reason. Every new double cut model they make uses the SLS/Hybrid shape, while they use the old C-1 shape only with Hellraiser Series, Custom and USA models. Maybe cause the SLS looks more metal and they want to keep the classier/less extreme shape with their more traditional designs? Dunno

    What are the chances of those prototypes making it to production?

    I'm ready to pull the trigger on a rust grey Apocalypse 7 when/if Sweetwater gets one in with a wood grain I really like. But if a multiscale version of that guitar is coming down the line I'll wait.

    If you see 1. It's probably the only 1 (only one for sale anyway).

    If you see a few of the same series like the hellraiser protos then chances are they'll be close to what is released.

    I'm guessing people preferred the SLS C-1 shape over the older one. I can see why, with the better fret access.
