so, I'm assuming a reasonably-priced eight string with non-rubbish pickups is asking too much?
See also: the LTD SC608B with the ugly, ugly 'SRC' inlay that spreads from the 10th to 13th frets.Yes, yes! Many endorsed artists seem to shoot themselves in the foot like this. The firespeak blue K7 would be perfect sans the "K7" inlay. The MTM1 model in red would be perfect if it didn't have the damned "SEVEN" inlay on the neck. Some artists should consider that while we may not be fans of their music, we might really like how they design their sig. I guess some artists think the only people who will buy them are people trying to imitate them. I think the new APEX will do pretty well.
