It just sank in for me, I will be getting one of these. I've always wanted a PRS and until I have the dough for one of those 25th anniversary swamp ash specials, a 7 string SE will be perfect, all the SE's I've played had very comfy and sounded great. I tried a buddy's sterling out once time and the neck on that was awfully comfy as well, so I'm sure a sterling maybe a potential option for me in the future, but the PRS definitly takes priority.

Here's to hoping Emil's custom model will have the white finish. Doubtful but one can dream.

This could probably happen to you too, so you shouldn't shoot the idea of owning one out the window so early. I guess the "try it out first" suggestion would work well here as well.
Point taken, but the "wide thin" SE necks feel like a piece of paper to me which is not cool. The Akerfeldt was a nice chunky neck but I doubt that is going to make it onto an SE 7 string.

Hey look out! It's an opinion! WTF?!?

No trem but the ARZ307 is otherwise somewhat similar to the Akerfeldt and has a nice chunky neck.

It is Sevenstring.org, after all. People don't even know the specs yet and the spec bitching has already begun.

I was just typing up the same thing! No one knows what the neck profile is labeled, much less how it feels, but they're already complaining about it!

2013 could be shaping up to be a great year for 7-stringers! New PRS 7-string, maybe a Carvin 7 CT model too? Lots more choices for us is ALWAYS a great thing! I'm excited to see if they're giving this one the slightly carved top like they did with the Custom 24 SE model this year. If they do, I'm likely in for one regardless of how little I've been playing my 7's lately. I'm also in the crowd hoping the neck carve isn't a super-skinny WT for the sake of my joints, but if it's comfortable enough I'll be happy.

Good suggestion but I tried it as well and it just didn't leave an impression.

I am waiting to see if any of the X series Jacksons turn up in a store near me, but to be honest, I expect this PRS SE will before that happens :/ Which is fine because I want to check it out when it arrives because something I don't have yet is an SE.

Like I need a new guitar anyway :P

I have no doubt that as soon as pics drop of an actual SE 7, the Hawker will either be sold or become the backup fiddle.

As far as specs go, I think it comes stock with a boner inducer circuit.

I love the fact that this is finally happening. Hopefully an Emil sig model (6 or 7) is in the works. Dude deserves it.

^ If that's it I will certainly be buying one.

Just saw Dave Weiner playing one of his PRS 7's last night with Vai and it reinforced my want for one of these.

Only thing I would do is swap the bridge to a Hipshot style since I hate trems and it's nearly identical to the PRS bridge aesthetically, but aside from that it's definitely what a PRS SE-7 should be
