More Specs

Being a big DragonForce fan, I've been keeping tabs on this guitar and now that it's finally been debuted, it looks like I might go back on my resolution to not buy any more guitars for a while. If you're looking for "versatility" in tone, this guitar is it, with HSH config + coil tap there are 9 different pickup selections. Plus the Edge Zero instead of the ZR that's on a typical S. The flame top is gorgeous and the "Kung Fu Grip" is kind of neat. Plus 21-24 are scalloped.

Sounds like the JEM of the S series to me. If it's not ridiculously priced, I'll own one.

White iceman is pretty cool too though.

It looks good, and it doesn't have his name on it, which is always nice.

I jacked the photos from a JEMsite post about the guitar and the DF website, they speculate on jemsite that it will be around $1499, but with the beefier bridge, custom PU's, scalloped FB, coil tapping and deeper cutaway/kung fu grip, I'm going to speculate $1699.

All you quality freaks, this guitar is made in Japan at the prestige plant. I think the other prestige S's are going to return to Japan too.

EDIT: I'm a huge fan that the middle pickup is mounted deeper in the body to be out of the way of the pick. That's my one beef with my S/RG. Plus the ultra access deeper cutaway will be killer. I hope it's 25.5" scale. It's nice to have 24 frets on an S. I wonder if they'll roll out a 24 fret S now?
