    Hey guys,

    Well, the day is finally here. After all sorts of searching...I have my first seven string. It is a 99 model UV777BK. Bridge pickup was swapped to a VHII. Brass block installed for better tone, ESP arming adjuster also. Beautifully taken care of and babied for many years. I got it from Budd Royce from BRL guitars in Toronto. I highly recommend him for any Caparisons or any other service as he went above and beyond for me (including shipping the guitar overnight express post so I could have it for the weekend! What a guy! So without further ado. Here are the suspenseful pictures:

    And the icing on the cake.....autographed by Steve Vai (he used the guitar for a clinic he was doing)

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for all of the great comments (and threats I guess haha)! I love it, it's taking some time to get used to, but it's very cool. I love having this whole new arsenal of 7-string songs to learn....shall keep my busy...very busy!!! As far as the other guitars go, the soloist has been my main go-to guitar for the last year and a half or so and I love it. The rbm doesn't really get played anymore so it will probably be on the chopping block soon haha (gonna upgrade my amp, I think).
