Reyes’ signature LTD JR-7 is the only seven-string guitar of the lineup and features a swamp ash body with a quilted maple top, a five-piece, 27 inch scale length walnut, maple and padauk neck, and a Macassar ebony fingerboard.

The guitar is stocked with a pair of Reyes’ signature Fishman Open Core humbucking pickups and features a Hipshot bridge with a solid, string-through body design. 

These are wired by volume and tone knobs, and a five-way super switch for pickup selection and coil splitting.

The guitar is retailing for US$1,999 (approx. AU$2,804).

Ashby’s LTD AA-1 is an update to the Of Mice & Men guitarist’s previous Signature Series model and adds a black satin finish and gold hardware design theme that extends all the way to its 24 extra-jumbo Jescar EVOgold frets.

It features a single bridge pickup, the EMG 81 active humbucker with a brushed gold cover, and a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body design.

A mahogany body with a neck-through three-piece mahogany neck, and a 24-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard without inlays completes the guitar which is retailing at US$1,299 (approx. AU$1,822).

Duet’s new LTD SD-2 is based on Sammy’s own spiky ESP Custom Shop model, which includes a mahogany body combined with a three-piece neck-through mahogany neck, fitted with a 350mm-radius Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets.

It also has a set of diamond-shaped mother-of-pearl inlays and glow-in-the-dark side markers, with a single Seymour Duncan Blackout active humbucker and a Floyd Rose 1000 SE double-locking tremolo bridge system.

The guitar retails at US$1,499 (approx. AU$2,102).
