Maybe it's a Canada thing. We have 'Taco Del Mar' here. Basically a craapy taco place that's always next to a Subway 'restaurant'

The change is for the better.

The strat is American Apple Pie so any name suggesting south of the border seems wrong to me. I was with them on the Greek God Headless stuff but not this. If anything at least go with native American names.

Just went through the Delos builder. Now I consider myself fortunate that I ordered my bolt when I did. No Floyd option. And I went with the reverse Aries style headstock which is exactly what most of the promo pics of the Delos have. Then I see Mike Jones posted a short video showing difference in body shape. The Delos has a larger upper horn. I am 100% happy with my decision!!

Yeah, I find the Bolt more pleasing to the eye as well for that very reason.

But for those who are excited about this, I'm excited for and happy for you! 8)

The flame Bolt is Ruby Red Stain. It is even prettier in person. The CS6 is triple step red and the GH3 is cherry sunburst.

I'm a big fan of all of the pickup. These guitars sound great!
