in terms of spex its the same, but the build quality and materials will be different to the CS version

Lol, I know that. You didn't understand my question, I wasn't clear enought I think.

I was asking is the pink color used for the edwards is the same pink color used for the CS ? ( because the white colors in the Edwards Scythe and in the CS Sythe are not exactly the same, so the pink colors could be different ).

This is the same for the Edwards and Signature Series Scythe, not the same for the CS, but it's also true for a number of models in Signature Series that aren't the same white as their Custom Shop counterparts, Hanneman included. I wouldn't think the pink would be any different.

I played the guitar yesterday afternoon.

Looks great, the pink is nice, close to the original model.

Honestly it looks really nice, especially for COB fans.

The cutaway is great.
The guitar is really light and sound very good for the price. But I think the SV will be better built with a more "body" than the SV.

Edwards are great, close to the ESP Std if we talk about the built quality, but they don't match them for the sound part.

Hey !

I wanted to know what did you think about the last 5 scalloped frets ? Are they well made ?

I think I'm going to purchase one one of these days, looking for pictures on the net.

Something I've notice : why doesn't it have the black thing which hides the springs, whereas the other Edwards have it ?

trem cavity cover??? maybe cos Alexi doesn't have it on his guitars
you can call me Phil if you want to
and the knot in the back adds caractor...i even have a proper Shamalama Ding Dong custom here with 4 knots on the front that will also blow any other custom guitar away for the purpose its been made for..

lolomgwtfbbq!!!, Alexi doesn't have tremolo cavity covers but on the E-AL 128, there is one. So why not on the E-AL 166.... :smt017 :smt102
