    Is it the Fortin or the BKP's....

    Or both...

    I was quite pleased when I saw his proto slightly before divulging things was in order - I find it quite aesthetically pleasing, and Jim has a rep for being nothing but an awesome chap regarding endorsees and customers alike. Here's hoping everything works for the best with Ola's new endorsement! :yesway:

    Is it an optical illusion or does that trem route look oversized?


    Everything else looks good.

    the bottom end edge of the trem itself looks like it's recessed a bit after the pole.

    I really dig everything about this guitar (finish, neck, scale length, shape, size) except for the Floyd...one of these without a trem and I would be all over it.

    Very, very nice. I'd also be curious about the price on this one.

    Anywhere but here.
    It is most certainly not an optical illusion.

    Very nice. I really wasn't very fond of their headstocks, but this new one is sweet. Sick looking guitar!

    It's nice to see the Strictly 7 name getting some more recognition (not that I'm biased or anything :D ). I know Ola's videos get quite a few views, should be good for business. :yesway:

    The inline (and reverse-inline) headstock has been a standard option for Strictly 7 for a while, I think since the beginning?
