    So she came in last night after months of waiting, very much worth it though! Was a bit tricky to capture the beauty of the finish in certain light/angles.

    Guitar has an average weight to it, build quality is top-notch, no blemishes/jagged edges or anything weird like that. I did like the feel of the neck, which is definitely thicker than an Ibanez 7, but the only other 7 I have to compare to is a Schecter Blackjack C7, and this one feels in in between those two. The guitar has a fat sound to it, pickups are hotter than the JB & '59 in my Blackjack C7 so it's much better equipped for ass-kicking metal sound. I did get an ESP case with it too, I did't eff around on this purchase lol.

    Big thanks to Alex Wade for designing (IMO) the best 7 string in this price range.

    Enjoy!

    I had to do a second take looking at the back because there are no electrical cavities.

    Congrats on finally getting yours man! And yes, it's hard to get good pics of it because the color is so deep and and the flame is tricky to get in certain angles just right. But also yes, well worth the wait!

    Happy NGD!!!

    Aaaahh, I cannot put into words the absolute eyegasm I'm having right now; not to mention the dangerous levels of want.

    It's beautiful, man, HNGD! :bowdown:

    Also, what kind of camera did you use? I need to invest in one of those.

    Believe it or not I used the camera on my iPhone 3GS, in the right lighting conditions it takes great pics. SO I don't think people are necessarily using the wrong cameras, just need a lot of light, can't beat natural lighting from a sunny day.

    It must be the 3rd or 4th time I see one of those in here and each time gets better and better.
    I now officially need to try one.
    Enjoy! :cheers:

    Those are really nice. I've been trying to find one to try out, but I've had no luck... Wouldn't mine getting one and slapping a Hipshot tremolo on it.
