Is Iconic some new meme brand I don't know about yet
yeah they're just another not-Fender boutiquey company making not-Fenders with some modern appointments, I just really love the grade of flamed maple they seemingly source for every single build

that and I dig 7 string strats (22 frets, non-locking trem, lower output pickups, etc)

fairly certain they're a bit similar to LsL?

also the dude from RRR Custom (explorers) was taken up by the team

Y2KV was for cryptic writings which was after his initial King V sig right?
the original y2kv was a traditional V, Jackson spin, before the King V if i recall correctly. they sell for mega bucks now. it was a short term release. I should have bought one when they where out new, but back then i was a kid and had no buying power. it was beyond my wallet and credit.

:lol: that’s from a grey DC800 that was at CME like a month or two ago. I can’t believe whoever bought it is trying to sell the cover.
Must have been the same dude who offloaded two other DCs at CME around that time, one was british racing green and the other was some red. Both had weird truss rod covers like this one.

They were produced starting in 2000 but the prototype was from 98.

I mean yeah there were roundhorn San dimas and Ontario v's but that was more a Jackson take on a Gibson v and are a different shape. All were 100% custom ordered and are a long with firebirds and actual Jackson explorers are the most rare and sought after Jackson's. Collectors don't let go of them.

I know right. the white one on the end is like my perfect flying v. Too bad they go for car money if they pop up at all so it's more of a bucket list item than something I will ever actually obtain.
Looking at the date on that y2kv prototype makes me feel like it was Jackson's Christmas present for the dude.

Damn, so much GAS for this, after I found out I can get a 20% discount.

I know it's not going to be anywhere near my H/06 and H/07 in terms of quality and I know all the reasons why it's a bit of a gamble, but with the discount it's going to cost me less than 50% of an H/07 with similar specs.

Well, I guess if I don't like it or I get a lemon, I can always return it...
