I always thought their previous guitar range didn't make much of the companys heritage. These, however, are beautiful. Think I'll go for the Black Rose DC.

Wow that's not much for a guitar made in Germany. I *think* these might be hollow with a centre block. Will have to investigate.

Edit: sorry they're made in Korea!

Aye, they remind me of a Gordon Smiths fitted with Maton electronics.

If I were to have one of these I think I'd want a black DC, which it doesn't look like they do.

Looking at these for the last day or so, I notice the Black Rose (redburst) one has neck binding and the others don't. That swings it for me. The DCs also have a nice headstock detail. Hope it's not like the Burns site where the guitar has binding in some pics, but the ones that made it to the stores don't have it.

I was looking at the custom options to see if they could fit a vibrato, the answer is a no but if you want different pickups........ they have 100's

I still love the cherryburst SC but the bound neck on the redburst DC does have the edge to it (despite having a strong Brian May "Red Special" vibe). SC in redburst with bound neck would be the sex.

Very interested to know what the neck profile is like on these: could be very tempted.
