PHOTOS! Specs are probably pretty obvious from the photos; went for the stainless steel jumbo frets and they were the correct choice as it seems from what little time I've had to play it thus far. Body has a clear matte finish and neck is tung oiled. Truth be known, I've never really played a 7-string before, and have only held (never played) an 8-string before owning this. You could say it was quite a gamble. Overall impressions thus far: Best instrument I've ever owned/played hands down. Feels great and plays great and I've not even set it up to my liking yet. I need to order a custom string set so I can run Drop E without flop city from the stock F# string. Once I get a new set on I'll sit down and get everything set up to my liking. TO ANYBODY that mainly plays 6's and is thinking about a DC800; it took me a grand total of 20 minutes playing this before I felt comfortable with the extra strings and neck wideness. If you have the cash and are on the fence, I say DO IT!
