just got back from samash, cool sales associate suggested i try one of these and i was shocked he let a little 17 year old like me go for it (took the opportunity of course) The tone structure on this guitar completely surprised me. i played through a blackstar (club 60 or something like that) cause the only working marshalls were the MG's. i wasnt ready for their crushing tone. but damn i plugged this thing in, low gain pickups, amazing sustain, got used to the scallops in like 5 minutes, and just wow. im the last guy to ever buy a signature model but this may be the one i buy.

UG got any thoughts?

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

Start saving up. Seing as you're only 17, you should have just enough saved up by the time you're 70 or so.

Hey if you got the cash and you like the scallops and the tone of the guitar go for it.

Pretty much the only guitar in production w/ a scalloped fretboard without going custom like Warmoth, so if you like the guitar, definitely go for it.

I actually think it's decently priced for a signature guitar, I've seen them go as low as $1000 used.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I was thinking of the old $12,500 one from Fender Custom Shop. Yeah, that 1700 shouldn't be too hard to fork up in a couple years. Haven't actually seen that one to be honest, I'll check it out.

umm.. Ritchie Blackmore sig strat

like the malmsteen strat myself. played a couple and once you get used to the scallops it plays great.

Normally, I'd say something about the markup on signature instruments, but that doesn't sound too outlandish to me. I'd still scour the inventories of other guitar makers to see if there is anything equivalent or better in the same price range, though.
