So now we're in Egyptian gods, over from Greek. Next should be something Roman, right? :lol:

Yeah... not really a fan. I like the numbers and letters designations, partly because "technically" using those names is cultural appropriation. More importantly, I'm not sure what either of those guitars have to do with Osiris or Zeus. I would think the Zeus would have some type of lightning bolt motif?

There's no "bolts" on the Bolt, either. Artistic, or mechanical. :lol:

I was walking through the country
And passing through lovely scenery
When I came upon some rotting remains
And though the carcass was wormy
Well, after all, it's all part of nature's art of cleaning

And if I try hard I think that I will see
Some good behind all of this ugly

Osiris kind of makes sense for a headless, since in Egyptian mythology, he had his "manhood" cut off by his brother, Set.

And Zeus castrated his father Cronus. I like the subtexts happening here.

The name be damned, I dig the hell out of it. It's like the Vader without the butt-shape! No, its like a headless Aries! Either way, if I was ever going headless, this would be it.

I new this was coming. Jeff mistakenly said "Osiris" in one of his recent videos, when he was trying to show off the Zeus. :laughhard: :ninja:

Offering different named brand pickups is a good thing.
But still seems to tilt towards proggy rock djent

Just look at the demo videos. Not exactly what I would be playing. But you can't please everyone. I would like more versatility in the demos and not so much a walk thru of a song. Kind of like this. Here is the cleans on neck and bridge. Here is the coil taps. Here is mild dist or crunch, here is some heavy sounds. And finally I shall play my new djent song from my new album.
It seems more like the player is doing a demo on his ability more than what the guitar can do. And to my old non hip ears they are all starting to sound alike.

Is it just me or are they going to cannibalize the vader sales with this one.

Just like with the Zeus, not a fan of this one either. Looks like another GH3 (with HH pickups) is next.

Trey Xavier from Gear Gods did some great (I thought) demos of the Lithium pickups a while back where they went through the different pickup selector switch positions in different tones.

Without looking i can guarantee that they probably had lower viewership numbers, but I have to imagine that of the views they got, it probably was more helpful than just about any other demo for potential customers.

They need some tight routes for the direct mount pups those boxes just look clumsy now.
Especially on the white one.
The aqua blue to purple one does look...rad
but no head stocks alas.
