+1 on the Edge FX.

Even if it's MIK (maybe MIK Prestige?) and if I really like how it plays that make me want to buy one a lot more than having a cheaper trem on it, or maybe even an EP7, since I don't use the trem anymore on my UV.

In fact I'm thinking of ordering a tremel-no for it.

I will definitely be one of the first buyers of the Xiphos 7 if it is less than or equal to the RG1527 in price.

I CAN'T WAIT, PICS NEED TO BE LEAKED ASAP! IT'S ALMOST DECEMBER!!

Yep, every nu-metal band out there will have one

I'm just kidding around - it'll be a sweet axe. Maybe not for blues though . . .

i'd love to actually see it with a trem. edge 3-7 or whatever. my other guitar player has commited to buy one, but like me he uses the trem, so if trem is not an option, then he will go elsewhere.

Re: Mr Hosono, Xiphos 7 is looking like it could make some money..

really ruined :



X-Serie "Xiphos"
Neck: 5 tlg. durchgehend Ahorn/Walnuss
Body: Mahagoni
Frets: 24 Jumbo
Fretboard: Palisander
Inlay: Reversed Sharktooth
Bridge: Gibraltar Custom 7
Hardwarefarbe: Cosmo Black
Pickups:
DiMarzio D-Activator 7 - N Humbucker Halsposition
DiMarzio D-Activator 7 - B Humbucker Stegposition
Case + belt

So
-No EMG
-only shark tooth inlays
- no iron pewter finish
-and a gibraltar bridge

So now you NEED to release the RGT 7 EX in germany...!

The custom one was (A number too high to think) times better than the one thats gone into production.

Even an edge fx bridge would have made a massive difference.

Well maybe I´d get one but I have to check that gibraltar. But I hate bridges like that!
I think most people only thought about Dino´s or necro guitars if you speak from a Xiphos 7
