    I'd love to have an ebony fingerboard SE 7, but I'm really not into quilted tops. If a plain black top was an option, I'd make a down payment right now. (I get it that this is a not-to-be-repeated limited edition; I'm just offering input for consideration on future projects.)

    Nah, we'd never do a run of black gloss ones. Too plain and ordinary for a limited run model. The only way to get a lot of people to jump into this kind of thing is to offer something a bit more exotic. Sorry you don't like it though man. If you change your mind, hit me up! :)

    Hi Nick, what's the fretboard radius? Also, any bridge options or just the normal PRS trem?

    Anything we didn't specify means its model default. Not sure what the radius is. Most likely 12 or 14". The only options are the ones specified on our website order page (pickups, tuners, straps, etc).

    Also here are a couple mockups of the 7-strings. 6-string ones to follow:

    Might be interested, if you can put a chrome covered Di Marzio Ionizer (Bridge) and a chrome covered PAF 7 in the neck with the Ibanez style 5 way switching/PRS 5 way switching, depending on the cost of shipping to the UK, i may be in for the Trampas Green 7 strings with a Hardcase.

    If all of that, with import charges can come to less than £800, it may be something that interests me lots. I know you guys are good as i got my Tremonti from you last year.

    I've been following the development of this run through facebook but I'm still not 100% sold if it'll be worth it buying from EU/UK. I saw all the work that went into getting this done and I assume the negotiation has been quite tough with PRS. But it's coming around £200-250 more than the stock models here and with tuners, case, pickups it comes in the Ormsby GTR territory (and more) or a reasonably specced Carvin. I'm not trying to put these down just thinking out loud.

    What wasn't clear and I don't know if you know that Zimbloth was if this will have a maple cap with a quilt veneer, just a quilt veneer or an actual quilted maple cap (which I doubt at this price point). Also what would be the additional cost to swap the hardware to black?

    Yeah we could do the DiMarzio set for you no problem. Shipping would be about $100-150 depending on method used. Import taxes will be minimal at best.

    If you're tuning to A or higher, 25" is fine.

    It will be a veneer, which just means its a thinner slice, but still legitimate quilted maple (not photo quilt or anything). For a $750 guitar its hard to expect much more. You don't have to opt for every single upgrade. Even with the pickup upgrades its still around $1000 USD or less. You don't need a $200 PRS case to enjoy this guitar.

    Ours is a quilt, not flame. Also fully bound body neck and headstock. Yes matching quilt headstock. Satin back of neck finish. Also optional pickup and tuner upgrades. So besides the fact we did this run before that model was announced, theres plenty different about it. Plus ours are limited to only 25 per color (25 amethyst 6-strings, 25 amethyst 7-strings, 25 blue matteo 7-strings, 25 trampas green 6-strings).

    I hope that helps!

    Ah, so all the trampas green 7 strings are getting the amethyst now? Okay, good, that's what I wanted. I can stop hounding you for an answer. ;-)

    Yeah, I saw that, I'm already in, but other people may want to know that there are a few more spots.

    Nope, no one who voted for it actually ended up buying it, so we replaced it with a color I knew would be popular and its worked out much better. The 7s are available in Blue Matteo and Amethyst only.

    Any updates on this? I emailed you, but I didn't see a response. (I wanted to pay the other 50%.)

    Well, no, I'd rather not paypal a non-responsive email address. I'll wait until it's done.

    Don't know what to tell you. Thats where I get all my emails, to which I reply hundreds a day, and get all our payments to. Try again, or give us a call if you're having a problem getting through.
