HR Giger - SHRG1Z ?

Does anyone know if and when this guitar will be availble.

From Rich's site:


SHRG1Z - The second phase of the collaboration with Giger, The S1 as cool as a polar bears nuts! The design is sandblasted into the top of the body and headstock ala the JEM90th and the smoke mirror inlay finishes it off very nicely. Claimed to be made in Japan but all finish work will be done in Korea, I wish they'd just do a full blown MIJ model. There will be a Phase 3 which nobody will talk about so lets hope.

Re: HR Giger - SHRG1Z ?

not sure if we'll really see one on the market right now or not? i really liked the iceman giger and it wasn't anywhere as cool as this one. let's only hope!

I'd love to get one of those S giger models. The thing that turned me off about the RG model was the Edge Pro II trem but since the S has the ZR trem then it should be very nice.

Hmmm...

At NAMM 2006 it was a prototype. This is a S (saber).

Not the RG.

+1 on the Pro II.
don't forget the INF pups - eewww. i like the fact the RG and IC gigers' are mahogany though. nice giger case(s) too. kinda like a UV1000 but with black interior.

Re: HR Giger - SHRG1Z ?

I actually don't mind the INF pickups because I think that they are decent stock pickups and are easily changed for something better. Whenever I buy a new guitar, I try not and worry too much about the pickups because the stock pickups almost NEVER sound exactly like what you want which is why you install aftermarket pickups to truly make the guitar your own.

Doesn't the S have Dimarzio IBZ's? The RG has the INF's. I think.

The Dimarzio IBZ pickups only come on Prestige guitars and the INF pickups come on the regular series guitars. And since none of the previous giger models have been prestige in any way, I doubt that they would start now with the SHRG1Z. It looks to me like the guitar is based off the S520 since it has dual humbuckers.

Re: HR Giger - SHRG1Z ?

Hmmm...my 1990 s540ltd has IBZ's. IBZUSAF1, C2, F2 to be exact.

I dunno what pickups are in the giger.

I would hope IBZ's.

Oh...when I said "Doesn't the S have Dimarzio IBZ's? The RG has the INF's. I think...." I meant the giger specifically.

In the photo of the RG you can clearly see those are INF's.

The S2170FW I have on order has IBZ's ....but it is, after all, a prestige.

A Korean prestige. But a prestig......Oh well that's another topic.

Check out the current S lineup. All of them come with INF pickups except for the Prestige models and there's really no way of telling whether or not that S giger model was made from a regular or prestige instrument unless there was a shot of it from behind where you could see the back of the neck.

True. Hopefully prestige.
