Here are few new or at least new-ish guitars I've recently paid attention to, in a good way that is!

So finally, there's a G&L Jerry Cantrell model. A very much of a basic guitar, but it's got something going for it.

Then.. my favorite NEW guitar! The new PRS SE Torero. Awesome looking thing, plus a PRS with Active EMG pickups going for 1600 USD?? A bargain. I can't wait to test this one!

And I must say, the Ibanez Mick Thompson signature(yes, #7, Slipknot guitarist) seemed pretty awesome when I tested it.
I have to confess that I thought the model I tested had EMGs on it (81 / 85 set), but the Ibanez website says "Seymour Duncan Blackout pickups". We should probably trust the official Ibanez website...

It seems that ESP/LTD line is expanding and rapidly, and I finally got my hands on the LTD Les paul style model EC1000FR; A 24-fret les Paul with active pickups and a Floyd Rose. Played like a dream. Had a wonderful Les paul like vibration to it on power chords, plus the darker LP sound. I think we have a winner here... ;)

And last but not least, various guitar manufacturers have started to put out 8-string guitars as "standard" models.
There are pretty interesting models been released by ESP/ltd, Ibanez and Schecter.
I haven't been able to test or find good sites on the 8-string monsters, but I will post more when I do.

Holy hell. Those things are art. Puts my Ibanez to shame.
