Nah I get that too. I'd love to snag one of these in either Royal Blue or the Trampas Green finish.
Those pickups sound good! GASattack. lol
when in doubt, play it safe, make it black......... *roll eyes*
"we only build black guitars because thats what people buy" <-------> "we only buy black guitars because its the only thing available"
For the same reason you won't see a Core carve top on any of the budget lines Or if you do it will be half-assed and look horrible like the new "multi-foil" SE
Anyways pretty cool release for the guys clamoring about scale length... will be interesting to see if these sell
yeah that's probably the worst looking multi-foil guitar I've seen in a while.
I still dream that they do an hollow body with 7 strings.
Gray black, should be getting it this afternoon. I'll definitely post pics!
I'm definitely with you. Although the black and or white options are more common, red isn't as common in the 7 arena, except maybe for Schecter.
PRS will likely introduce new colors in following years like they did with the SE-7. I think the first run of SE-7's were Vintage Sunburst (I have one of these actually, lol), and Whale Blue, then the following years they released Amethyst, Gloss Black, Dark Cherry, Blue Matteo (? can't remember, but it was a lighter blue).
I thought the multi-foil was the best looking one out of the new previews tbh fam.
And I usually hate that style of finish.
Well lads, my SE SVN just arrived and it was set up pretty damn well out of the box, i am very impressed. Feels like a bigger / less pretty version of my artist package CU24. Intonation is spot on, they hit it out of the park with this one. Maybe I remember incorrectly, but the pickups in this sound way better than the ones in the first generation SE 7 string, no idea if theyre different or if its the scale length making the difference. Highly recommend!
So no pics then?
Trying to get it in enough light to take pictures that wont be horrible
I’m pretty sure I still have a USA Hipshot black bridge and tuner set sitting in the basement. Might end up with one of these down the road and modding the heck out of it!
Congrats! That looks totally awesome in that trans gray-black finish!!
Yeah, that was the biggest issue i had with my SE-7 the neck pickup (VB-7) was fine but the bridge pickup (HFS-7) was all low-mids and bass with no high mids or high-end detail. After swapping in a Duncan Pegasus/Sentient I have been 100x happier.
The new SVN's have 85/15 - 7 "S" pickups, which should be a lot less bassy and will have lower output than the old stock pickups. Glad to hear they sound good, I definitely noticed a tonal difference in the video demo I saw.
Yes! In fact, today I emailed Kurt and told him he should roll out some fluorescent ‘80s colors. A hot pink 8 string with Floyd would be awesome!
hell I'd be happy with a fluorescent pink intrepid.
If your married you are
Damn and I just got a new guitar I have to sneak in so I don't have to sell and old one lol! It was one of my bucket list guitars so U hope it withstands the hype. However the pics nyxzz posted showed a super crisp guitar and got the GAS ignited again.
