    I vote HH AL.

    I have a Silo Spec and a HHAL and between the two of them they cover a lot of ground. However, the feel of the HHAL's Rosewood neck is out of this world. Roasted maple is nice and easily my 2nd favorite wood choice, but there is nothing like the feel of solid Rosewood AND Due to CITES who knows if and when it will go away? Grab one while you can... you won't regret it.

    I'd still vote HHAL if they changed it to a roasted maple neck, overall its an amazing guitar

    I agree with you Stratty, the AL HH and the Silo Special are quite the pair together and do cover a lot.

    Hahahahaha, I voted for all, as you aren't gonna go wrong with any of them. Since you've already got a Silo Special and you can always snag a used one at a great deal, try something different.

    seems that it won't happen I live in France, the guitar is in Japan and want him to ship in Japan in my family and he refuses. I will bring one from France next time I will go to Japan, less hassles.

    I'm already geared when'd it comes to HH guitars that's why I need more SSS but you need some HH flavor and the AL is such a nice design, you can't be wrong

    I totally agree with you here as well. DrKev, if oyu can score a really nice AL HH I have a feeling you'd become a fast lover of it. Though a AL MM90's is damn nice too.

    Update:

    Thanks for your votes and advice! Really appreciate it! But I'm kinda shocked - only one vote for the Silhouette Special? Anyway, I can't find one I like right now, and the roasted maple and stainless frets on the Cutlass is a winner. So Cutlass it is, HSS RS Ivory White. Sometime in August I hope. You can help me name it.

    I may put a shell pickguard on it, just to be different.

    Anyone have a source for custom gold anodized pickguards? 'Cause that could be taaaaaaasty!

    Poll is closed, but I definitely would go with a Silhouette Special. The used tangerine on Reverb looks nice.

    I understand the Cutlass selling well. More strat like dimensions and shape. But the SS has a sexier body shape imo, and the hardtail option is a winner for me (mine also has piezo). The Cutlass does have the roasted maple and SS frets, and the headstock being a tad bigger isn't a biggie. So I don't think you can go wrong! Sometimes you just gotta reinvent the wheel to get a fresh sales push going. Cutlass and Stingray seem to be doing that even though a SS or Al HH or Armada would have done the same things tonally.

    I'm just glad to see MM having success so I know they will be around for a long long time. Who knows, I may get a Cutlass before it's over with!

    Yeah, 1 vote for Silo Spec because you already have a Silo Spec. If you had a HHAL I would brace voted Silo Spec as well.... although, everyone should have an Axis or 3.
