I'm going to try to remember to describe the guitars I in post, so these when the posts get quoted, well all still know at least which guitar is being referenced, since attached photos aren't included in the quotes.

Good call. That issue has been driving me a tad wacky.

I do like the Evertune bridge option, but I've never played one, and can't really see paying that much for something like that.

Is it worth it, to any of those who have played an evertune?

I didn't know they made 7-string headless trems, neat stuff.

8-string, too! :shock:

It's extra " :shock: " because they don't offer the 8-string in the standard model, just the headless. :think:

7-string multi-scale blue flamed AZeustic...not too shabby.

The Koa Solo looks amazing as well!

If I saw one of those solos built as it is, but with a true Tele barrel bridge and the right pickups, I think I'd start sweating bullets. They need to get cracking in the pickup department. They knocked out some nice modern buckers (lithium) plus high output ultra modern is coming (thori), did the vintage output Alnico two beryllium... They really need to get something going in the P90 department, and, since Tele style guitars are turning into such a big part of their new catalog, Tele type Alnico II/III/V single coils, depending on the position and vintage they're aiming for.

But to sell all these beautiful Tele types but nothing authentic to put in them.. it's frustrating.

And they should also bite the bullet, painful as it may be to the ego, and design a pick guard for these as well. It's easy enough to add later on, but there's nothing like having your guitar purpose built from jumpstreet.

My guess is any serious pickup RnD is out the window.

The other issue I have with the solo is the lack of a headstock that works with the body style (for me).
The closest i can is the new inline (a little aggressive ) standard or reversed or the old inline reversed (not a big fan of that one in general)
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)

While I like all of the headstocks on the S6----I always thought the TL60 looked great with the SB headstock. The S6 probably would, too.

I think the S7 and 8 look great with everything. and they probably don't have a 7/8 option for the SB headstock anyway.

A buddy of mine got a S6 last year with the old reverse inline headstock and I love the way it looks. But with that said I do wish they would have made something a little more classic available for it too.

It's also got THE coolest black limba neck I think I've ever seen!
