Title says it all, really. Three drop tuned variants - 7 string RG, ARZ (Les Paul style) and FR6 (Tele style). Pretty cool step up, not sure what pricing will be like though.

I know Todd's gears will be grinding.

I love that Les Paul cut one and the matte black is awesome.

I like the placement of the controls on the RG model. Very cool looking range.
I dont suppose you'd get much change from a couple of grand for one of those bad boys.

FINALLY!!! It's about time they went ahead and starting putting BAREKNUCKLEs in at the factory and saving folks the trouble of yanking out the stock pups smile.gif

With the hard tails, I would have liked to see an EVERTUNE option. Having a guitar that never goes out of tune is pretty handy smile.gif

Looks like the price is around £1500 for the RG.

I wish more manufacturers just had a semi-custom option; use whatever models they already have as a base then let us choose between pickups and bridge type. But I guess it's not really cost nor time efficient for a big company to do stuff like that. laugh.gif

True!! I wish it was though smile.gif Maybe a drop down list of options or something. Evertune, floyd, etc. Then pick which kind of pickups. I'm guessing they are heading that way now that they are starting to add boutique bits. smile.gif

Halo Guitars does something like that, really affordable and has all the options that I want but I guess the biggest drawback is you don't have that brand name 'security'. Heard some bad things about the company in the last couple of years ago but apparently they've stepped up their game; change of management etc.

Sadly, HALO went through a rough patch when they grew really quickly and started putting out guitars of shoddy build quality and nearly blew up the company. But they are back and evidently, taking great care to solve issues. But yeah, it's still a bit of a risk but the good news is you can get a custom guitar for much less than you used to smile.gif
