That clear coat is crazy, the guitar looks likes its been covered in glass?!
Will they be sanding in the satin finish, or will there be a coat of satin added on top? or C) none of the above?

I have to say that looks freakin amazing with the gloss. I had some Mac Ebony as a fretboard once and I really loved it. I've been very interested in Ran for a long time but, since my bad experience with Shamray I have been reluctant to put a lot of money and trust into a builder that doesn't have much to lose if he screws me.

I know the aesthetics are all great and look very well executed on all of their guitars I have seen. How do they play? How is the fretwork and neck alignment and such? I had a custom shop ESP that looked like a typical Super Strat but the neck was freakin amazing. It almost played itself. I have never experienced that with any other guitar.

I really wish I could play one. I should have paid them a visit when I was in Poland

Ill be able to answer your questions soon, as shes not complete and in my hands just yet as far as bad experience goes i totally understand i simply went with RAN with how i was treated by the owner some other shops i tryed where pretty arrogant but i don't hesitate with recommending Dariusz it's been such an easy and quick process replys in 24hrs without a doubt and anythings possible (for the right price )

havent had the joy of touching a ESP let alone a Custom shop but ive heard all great things about em price tags scare me a bit tho lol

Looks Awesome man!!!
I've been looking for a high(er) end 7 than my RG7321, and Ran gives me GAS!
I was looking at the AW-7, but why not throw some extra money in and get a 7 version of this? (not fully custom though, just a few things like inlay)

Cheers!

Ooohhh man the contrast, and that gloss is... just... erotic ooohh! oohhh!!!

Sorry I got carried away. What was your reason for going with Macassar Ebony for the neck, just for the looks (great choice)? how will it affect the tone? i.e. bright, warm, etc.

In the beginning it was purely because i LOVE that wood but research tones etc i thought it would be an interesting choice having a Ebony neck thru i personally haven't seen it beforenor heard it , itll deffenitly be a bright tone wise thats why the Swamp Ash wings came into play ( i know most tone will come from the neck) but also went with the ash to lighten it a little and help with balance overall because as Dariusz said i better hit the gym because she's gonna be heavy with all that ebony Also went with a BKP Cold Sweat as my pickup to also balance the overall combo out
