My understanding is that it would be 24-fret. Not sure if that would mean a body like a GH3, or more like the outline of an Aries with a pickguard...or a new body closer to the Hurricane's... :think:

Ideally it would have the HSS layout with colored pickups, the angled humbucker and three mini switches.

The Becker bolt on and both Howe models are similarly designed, they have a neckplate. So no to the Aries idea. The G3 seems the natural choice as the starting point for this new model.
What was the scale length on Jason’s guitar? If 24 3/4 , I doubt they would keep that aspect. Based on shape and pup and bridge placement, I’d say that it is a shorter scale than 25.5.

This wouldn't be replacing the JB models that are already offered would they?
Saving up for:

JB200C
JB100 White/White w/ Black Hardware
JB100 Blood Red w/ Black Hardware
SCB6C Jet Black w/ Gold Hardware
DC700C White/White w/ Gold Hardware
K7H Deep Red Flame w/ Black Hardware and Binding
DC700H Deep Purple Flame w/ Gold Hardware

Not too different from a blue GH3 really.

Interesting. The Hurricane headstock is very similar to the Aria Pro II headstocks of the same era.Image

Does anyone know if Hurricane was part of Aria Pro II?

It will be interesting to see if it has a pick guard as Jeff has stated that he dislikes pick guards.
