    I don't think i've seen anyone post on this one yet. Thoughts?

    I think it looks pretty cool and I absolutely adore the 'newest' version he got in silver as seen in this video:

    There's a thread about it in the General Music forum or whatever it's called. I think he said he's still tinkering with it and not to expect any production version for a long time. Most disappointing is that I think he said something about signature inlays, which doesn't sound promising (though I have no idea what he has in mind).

    I really like the prototype as it is. Looks very sleek. Any idea what the neck-heel is like?

    We all know what inlay should be there. And if it is where it belongs, I will own a 7 again.
    The back should have similar contours to the DK24 since that's what this is based on.

    You can kinda see it in this picture. The lower cutaway looks significanly thinner than the upper one. Probably means there's both a back and front scoop.

    I have ridiculous amounts of respect for Angel and Andy, would absolutely love to see Wave of Synergy live. I suspect I wouldn't be the only dude throwing my boxers on stage.

    Reverse Fender headstocks normally look super cool. But on a 7, not so much. IMO.
    Also gold hardware. :facepalm:

    Otherwise it looks pretty sick.

    Guy is a sick player.

    A production version might look very much like the DK7M but with the Charvel/Strat head. Curious where the US version would end up.

    Ultimately might not be my thing, but great to have Charvel put more 7-strings out there.
