    First off, let's let the photos speak for themselves:

    So I received this guitar last Friday from sevenstring.org user AllThingsPeriphery. Fun Fact: He's also the moderator and creator of the popular (and growing) Facebook fan-page "ALL THINGS PERIPHERY". Check it out if you're a fan of the band.

    Now, onto the guitar.

    I'm not much of the "review" type, but what I can say is that this guitar is quite remarkable. Having played a few models in my local store, I knew what to expect. Somehow this guitar still blew me away when it arrived.

    It is laid out almost exactly how I would have ordered a custom shop guitar. I might have picked mahogany over alder but wouldn't have had any particular reason for doing so. I probably wouldn't have ordered a tone knob, but the HT7 has a clever way of having a tone knob that stays bypassed until you pull the knob out. That is, its default position excludes the tone knob from the circuit. That's even better than having no tone knob at all!

    It was so convenient being able to buy a production model that checked every box for me. I'm also happy that it isn't over-featured with things I wouldn't use or over-branded with Periphery stuff. I'm a huge fan of the band, but wouldn't want to look down at my guitar and be reminded it's actually Misha's.

    This guitar has both form and function. It's a workhorse, but also a looker.

    I can honestly say I don't need to be purchasing another 7 for quite a while. Now, a 6... I might have to pick up another one of these in Laguna Burst. :agreed:

    HNGD man! There's a 6 string at my local shop with that color, but the top doesn't even look remotely as well as yours does. Many congrats and enjoy that beautiful fiddle :hbang:

    Oh man! That thing is gorgeous!
    How would you define the neck thikness? They say it's neither too thin or too thick, but something in between..And the junction body - neck? Do it bother you when you reach high frets??

    Looks great. My only complaint with these is just the kind of plain maple neck back. I like seeing stringers, but that's just me.

    Haha I know what you mean, I think we've been conditioned to seeing "wenge/purpleheart/paduak stringers making the next uber strong" because a lot of high quality guitars now come with all those woods sandwiched in there. Interesting that Misha went with that, but I bet the neck is pretty strong on this guitar. The whole thing just looks like it's built like a brick sh1t house anyway :shred:

    As a JPX owner and ex-PRS wide-thin owner, the neck thickness sits right in the same area. Unfortunately I can't find consistent measuring methods, but a JPX neck is just shy 19mm at the 1st fret and the PRS wide-thin is 19.8mm at the nut.

    The Jackson is 20.1 mm at the third fret. Variance between the nut, 1st and 3rd frets shouldn't be too much of a difference for the sake of this post.

    The important thing to note about the Jackson neck is that the shoulders are a little more pronounced than a PRS or JPX neck. Not much, but just enough to get a little more purchase in the grip. It's not actually much thicker, it just feels a little meatier in your hand because this adds a little to the circumference.

    It's very comfy. I don't death-grip it like I sometimes find myself accidentally doing with the JPX.

    And about the neck joint, not at all. Bolt-on neck joints have never bothered me. I keep an open hand when I go up that high anyway.

    I hear ya. But the lack of glue is quite refreshing to see these days. A solid piece of rock maple won't fail you. Not to mention, sometimes the backs of guitars can be prettier than the front, and that's just not right. I'm looking at you, Mayones :agreed:

    I though the "bulb" sign on the back only came on the bulb models?


    beautiful guitar!

    It's engraved on the Bulb models. This one is hand-signed! :hbang:

    IIRC that's explicitly why Misha went with the maple neck so it's not something to constantly dick around with while touring/traveling.+

    Edit: HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG looks amazing
