Odd LACS model sighted

I passed by Sam Ash the other day and saw a LACS 7 string model hanging. Verified the serial number and it sure was an LACS... Don't remember if it had a blank fretboard or offset dots but the specs looks similar to a JCRG3-VV with a couple exceptions:

direct mounted EMG 707's
U-bar trem system

I tried playing the guitar and the trem was blocked... totally defeats the purpose of the U-bar... didn't plug it in but we can assume it sounds like an EMG fitted Ibanez.

now to the questions: any clue whose model this was for? perhaps sighted somewhere? is it worth getting for over a grand?

sounds like a steal if the EMGs were installed originally and the trem can be unblocked.

If you get it, be sure to post some pics

It was probably made for one of the korn boys.

I think almost any LACS is worth a grand. (If you like the specs, offcourse)

Re: Odd LACS model sighted

Am I the only person waiting to see this thing? You need to go back to that GC and either buy it or get some picks for us. I have a LA Custom Shop Designed 7 string with EMG's, it is the best 7 string I have ever had.
