BEHOLD! Karl's New EBMM Ball Family Reserve JP7 (Photos Galore)

I recently helped my buddy Karl Hungus acquire his dream guitar, an emerald quilt EBMM Ball Family Reserve 7-string. I scored it on his behalf and I'm going to be installing BKPs for him as well.

Here it is! What a ....ing GORGEOUS guitar. I didn't play it yet but damn what an incredible neck profile. This really does look like the $3000 guitar it was.

Oh, and I have to thank Nick for posting this thread and taking some decent pictures, because we all know that my camera facilities are lacking severely, so if I had waited to take pics myself, they would only be 19.5% as beautiful.

No, it's a mahogany neck and body with an alder block or something.

Man that is awesome. After playing around with my cheap ass OLP I really want the real thing. They are just the perfect feel and shape. The only thing I don't like is that they can't have the awesome body cut b/c of the top, but that top damn sure makes up for it.

I'm playing it right now, it has the body/arm contour thing, it's just not as drastic as say an Ibanez. This thing has the nicest neck profile I've ever seen. I'm honestly jealous, amazing.
