    Yeah, I actually added it because I thought it was hilarious - I think they might be going a little "too" viral with the marketing, y'know?

    I am really eyeballing this guitar. Looks awesome!

    Doesn't the mahogany make it muddy though? Does Christian's Custom ones also come in mahogany? Their last album has a clear tone which isn't muddy at all.

    As much as I don't want to bump an old thread, what I have to say doesn't warrant a new one

    I fuckin love both my COWs - a 6 string in black and a 7 string in black ahahaha
    They play amazing, the neck is beautiful, they have such a menacing sound, they are great - the COW7 IMO is the nicest 7 string you can get outside of a custom shop, becauase the LTD 7 strings are all pretty bad. Really, bad, actually. I haven't tried the ESP stephen carpenter 7s. And I don't appreciate the rosewood fretboards of the Schecters, the longer scale, or set necks.

    Unfortunately though, comparing the top end Japanese Jackson (SLSMG, the SL3 is equivalent just with a trem and HSS instead of dual EMGs) the COWs don't look so good. The neck thru SLSMG plays even better. Its like a total relevation every time I pick it up. It sounds not quite as mean though - it is mellower then the ultra-light COW6. It is definitely built much better and finished much nicer.

    I really wish they made a SLS7MG ....

    Perhaps but it's hard to complain, as we both know the COW7 is an insane value. My bandmate owns mine now, and I love having it around. It's a joy to look at and hear on a constant basis.

    My first 7 sting was a dean flying v and it was just way too top heavy and hard to play standing up. Ive had my COW for about a year and its just incredible and extremely light. I wish Jackson would produce one of the COW models with a floyd rose like the silver and black one christian has.

    cheaper then it is in the states? It was $1350 from the local guitar store and $1050 even from Long and McQuade out here in Calgary, I got my first one from the states for $700 and the second one for $800...

    I just bought this guitar today, I'm so happy to get it in my hands. I actually found Desert Camo 7 used, in like perfect shape for $500 on guitarcenter.com. I'm having sent from minnesota to texas, i can't believe i got such a good deal on this guitar.
