    If you read their ad copy they say the S shape is designed to keep the wood thick in the middle where it counts and thin on the sides for comfort. But then we get into a tonewood debate and let's not do that :)

    Also @odibrom nobody can take that title from me! Except maybe Mr. Jeff.

    no i know all too well not to go into that debate here lol. i wear my scars proudly. The complaint that i have to counter (just to your thickness counterpoint) is the S series that Ive had, when i compare their centers thickness to an RGs thickness, the S is still thinner. (hope I dodged that tonewood bullet lol)

    ... oh no you won't. Sabers are mahogany and most RGs are basswood, the first beats the second, hahah :D

    @LiveOVErdrive ok, I'll give you that, Mr Jeff is the only contestant to the title... besides you, that is... a game already solved before it even begins, you win, Jeff is second but those are third... is it fair now? :yesway:

    ... so everybody knows, I, and I guess all of us, are just goofing, respect the bevels! Respect the tone wood debate!

    Not usually a Strat kind of guy, but I'm definitely craving an HSS Strat with a Floyd Rose. Definitely not trying to get something that looks like Neal Schon's "Lights" Strat.

    That Charvel is fire! I always wonder about the tuning stability of those Jackson headstocks without a locking nut.

    I'm currently pining over the ESP LTD SC-607B in purple satin.

    I've got the SC-608B and SC-20 and absolutely love them. Would love to round out my collection with this new 7-string.

    But, I just ordered the Solar A2.7 (lemon neon matte) so it'll probably be a while until I get permission to buy another 7-string...

    Something about this guitar just clicked with me. I feel like maybe it needs the Sottile head. But I otherwise like it now. Still don’t like the two mini toggles though.

    Reba's got it going on for sure.

    I spent some time on the phone with her and her artist manager at ESP when one of her guitars went missing :ugh: I eventually tracked it down and was so happy to give her the good news, it resurfaced like three months later. She was really patient through the whole process, which says a lot about her as a decent human being... In my book she deserves every success.

    Oh and yes, the new sig model is a beast.
