Looks very tasty indeed - quite liking the headstock design

While raping a bear in Yellowstone and snorting coke out of a freshly-dead baby's skull, I finally felt that I had found my calling and built a time machine out of Iraqi WMDs and LOTS OF HEMP WHOA. Using this time machine I went back in time and shot JFK from outer ....ing space. I am now your god - Jeff

Looks like a pretty standard custom if you ask me

Looking good!
The GMW headstocks have a recess in the back of them.
go here
WELCOME TO THE HOME OF GMW GUITAR WORKS!!!!!!!!!!
click on GMW guitars, then click on the headstocks button and pick one and load the flash clip for it.
it shows it from every angle
Lee only uses the best of every thing , I don't know what Agile uses but I doubt it's the same hardware.

It's been quiet on the "7" front over there, do you know if Lee finished the other two 7's he was working on yet?

LOVE the guitar, but the headstock really doesn't work for me; the 'butt' is far too large - it's quite unattractive IMHO.

Nice I can't wait for a review.
that millenium headstock looks much better with some hardware on it.
any work from Lee on the other 7's that were in progress?

Mine is the first to be completed so I'm not sure what else he's got cooking. Lee is one busy dude though. Imagine we'll see more of his sevens coming along. I hope anyway. This was an effortless experience on my part. 4 month wait time on my first custom = cake. I can't wait to plug this thing in. Lee said she's super punchy and quite likely to remove paint from the ceiling.

I kinda wonder the same thing. he was emailing me everyday when he first started. once i told him I didnt want the guitar he was building he stopped contacting me. Kinda unfortunate actually. I convinced him to make them but he refused to do my specs and made two to his own specs and expected me to buy the quilted one...nothing about those to guitars are to my original specs so I really can't see how he'd expect me to buy it.

Anyways, to the OP looks awesome! hope it plays well! the guy can build some kick asss guitars for sure, but in my experience he can be a bit bone headed at times.
