Thumbs down Re: here it is

I usually love Jackson/Charvel guitars and have nothing but good things to say about them, however, that thing is wayyyyyyyy!!! overpriced IMHO!

Re: here it is

Come on guys, that's list price. They are a large volume Jackson/Charvel/Fender dealer and don't charge nearly that much.

Re: here it is

take anywhere from 20-30% off the top of list and you will have a close street price (standard anyway).
funny that they are searching this hard for ideas that they find something fairly obscure (to most ppl) to mass produce at such a price tag - very close to the street price of a 7VWH or BRMR.
i'm sure it is a knock-out axe but did we really need the Crossroads tie-in?

Re: here it is

They likely did a small batch run of 10, and that's probably all they have. C/J is great with their small batch runs

Re: here it is

Very nice guitar, expensive, but no doubt worth every penny.

Re: here it is

I spose, Im looking at it from a player perspective rather than a collector.

If it was a player things like that would detract from its value.
