Green is my favorite color, but that purple one looks badass with that finish and the grain coming through.

Green looks nicer, but I'd take the blackouts over the EMGs.

The black just looks so evil.and it has blackouts which i hear are a little more versatile than emgs.

I think the green looks way cooler personally, but you guys seem to think other wise, huh

It's still a badass guitar anyway.

You think like my brother then. I'm not usually a fan of the flame maple top look but there are guitars like that black flame that just really grab my attention. I also love quilted maple top, I have a black cherry quilted maple top on my ESP Horizon FR-II.

Is the black flame an arch top body, I can't tell from the photo. Personally I don't like flat top guitars, may want to check that out with the guy who run's the site.

If the black model is a arch top I would definitely go with that model it look's incredible. There are some reviews of the green model on Youtube though, so you may want to check those out before you buy, I think most people change the pick ups from the EMG's though.

Real Flamed Maple top and double cutaway light mahoganny arch top body. That is what the website says on specs.
So they go for the Seymour Duncans instead of EMGs or choose EMGs instead of Seymour Duncans?


EDIT: I'll wait till May if I choose the green one, that is why I am trying to figure out which i should take because if I decide the black one I will order it maybe this month.
And I would maybe go for a 8-string but I want to have both Bridge and Neck pickups...

They go from EMG's to something else. Well the reviews that I've seen, it's all down to personal preference though, I've never used EMG's before.

If your going for an 8-string why not save up a bit more and go for something like this;

http://www.rondomusic.com/product3064.html

It's full price is $999 but it look's absolutely amazing and the bridge, if what I believe is correct would be a lot easier to change tunings with.

First of all I'm mainly intrested in 7-string and I'm looking to keep that in standard tuning and then tune my ESP Horizon FR-II to One Step Down.
And one more thing... This is a righty, there aren't any new models of 8-String leftys in May.
Anyway, I am getting a 7-string because that is what I'm looking for.

Yeah, what really catches my eyes about the Black Flame are the pickups.

Thanks, guys, keep those votes coming!!!

Yes, but ch0 is an EMG hater, which is probably why he chose the Black Flame

I would pick the Tribal Green quilt top the Black Flame top look too muddy and crappy. Black guitars are too common get something there not a lot of out there. The pick don't do the guitar justice I have seen Rondo guitars done in that green on a quilt top it's beautiful.

There's nothing really different other than the quilted/flamed top, colors, and the pickups.
Personally, I'd go with the flamed top black. It has the blackouts, the flamed top, and the green on the other one just doesn't appeal to me.

Then again, it is your choice.

The Tribal Green looks like shit, but the Black Flame has Blackouts, and I prefer EMGs, so I'd say the Tribal Green, and deal with the ugly finish.
I'm getting the Black Flame with EMGs myself next week though, so I'd suggest that.

Thank you guys for all the votes, this has really enlightened me. I hopefully will come to a conclusion soon. And when I have a new guitar I'll post pics.

I'm discouraged to buy one of these guitars now... but I want one... and why am I discouraged?! If the guitar is damaged during shipment to me, I will not be able to get a refund or another copy of the guitar and am left with a broken guitar!!! And I want one of these guitars..... I guess it is time to look elsewhere.
