    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. :metal:

    Here it is! What a fucking 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.
