    Hi guys,

    like everyone in this forum I am very interested in a Bo-El too, so I sent an e-mail to the builder. I expected an request in some weeks, it lasts only a few hours. I couldn´t imagine the Body-Neck construction, so I asked him and he sent me this beautiful picture, maybe it´s interesting for someone.

    I like it when the bare wood is shown instead of a thick plastic.

    I think it would look a lot nicer with direct mount pickups..

    ...and tune-o-matic bridge, strings through body, a better headstock, and a body that doesn't look just slightly off to the point that you feel uncomfortable looking at it, like there's something wrong but you're not sure what.

    ...oh, and the controls positioned better so they're not in the worst possible location anymore :lol:

    Sorry guys, didn´t know you can´t use google and search for the Bo-El Website with Front pics :lol:

    I think it´s great, the tree of life is awesome and it costs just 1300€.

    I've never liked 5+2 headstocks - however, the rest of the guitar looks very good.

    There's a vid on the Bo-El site of Marcel Coenen demoing the MC-7. Don't watch it unless you want to feel totally inadequate. :)

    Amazing shredder.

    I'd be all over the MC-7 model at that price if it didn't have a trem.

    By the way, I have to disagree about the direct-mount pickups. They are a total fucking pain in the ass if you like to adjust your pickups to precise heights, as I do. Plus, it makes swapping pickups more difficult.
