I really want to like that HSS one.

Unfortunately, the ones I saw at my local store were set up really funny and played poorly. I don't know if they would have been good with a more reasonable setup.

The single hum one looks pretty damn cool, but I would like it more if it had a maple fretboard. Single pickup guitars are amazingly cool.

nice. i like those better than the earlier ones (though the white one was cool). Single hum one would possible be better with a maple board (and something other than a JB), as kurapica said, but i like that hss one (though i've just checked, and i don't like the pickups it comes with).

Shame i wasn't blown away by the previous versions I tried in the shops; I imagine these wouldn't be any different.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The one with the pickguard looks to have a transparent finish

The finish is called Trans Red Ale. The one above it is Trans Kandy Gold. In case you missed the obvious, trans refers to a transparent finish.

No I didn't miss the obvious, I just went by looking at that photo. I don't know the names of all their finishes and yes I've been around guitars long enough to know what a trans finish is

The batch is called the Lucky 7, because it's the 7th batch

Yet all are 6 strings

Disappointed

You get a different tone from just one pickup. Not from the obvious things, such as more wood and less magnetic pull on the strings, but just from a cleaner and purer signal path. Makes a massive difference. Helps LP Jrs, SG Jrs, Melody Makers and Esquires get a good tone.

^ No worries. I've got a massive fancy for single pup guitars, just seem so perfect and minimal.

I bought one from the last batch and couldn't be happier with it. It's perfect for me and I'm liking it much more than any of the Jacksons I own. I also have a Peavy on the way. I have been extra good to myself this Christmas.

The obvious things such as more wood of course makes a difference like mentioned but I think the signal path it where its at a lot also.

pickup > volume pot > output jack

Its just this pure, raw sound coming from the guitar and even better of course with the right pickup/wood combination.
If you don't use a treble bleed cap on the pot which I don't either, rolling back on the volume warms things up nicely for cleans. Best way is to set your amp to your desired max volume/drive and use the guitars volume knob to control things.
Of course, tube amp is a must.
