And EMGs optional, don't know what happened to the use of DiMarzios, but it's still Caparison pickups by default.

I'm imagining what black rose would look like in my head and it's awesome. It better be as good as my imagination dammit!! :lol: :lol:

Do you think they'll show these things off at MusikMesse?

New sponge looks good Trans purple custom line is quite tasty also

Black rose does not like I imagined. Not even slightly. Still pretty cool though I guess. :lol:
And snow storm looks just like the frozen sky from before, except without the black bits. It's pretty cool but I'd much prefer the frozen sky finish myself.

No more Angelus TR or TAT Frozen sky though... now what am I going to do... :(
Guess I'll have to go for one of the dellinger 7s. :D

Frak. I love the snowstorm TAT, but not different enough to warrant owning in addition to my iceberg TAT. If only the Dellingers had it too :(

Seems Snow Storm and Black Rose are TAT colours aswell. That seems lazy. Never been overlapping TAT and Horus sponge colours before.

I dont know if I like the M3 body idea either, especially for the Horus.

Interesting that they've plopped in a PH-R and toggle, now like my Horii and many other peoples are anyway.

Wish there was a custom line Horus. Oh well.

I like the ebony board but neither finish tickles my fanny.

Not especially, Pete's is over a white base where this is over black, and ofcourse it has a matching sponge headstock.
