Pr0n first, my novella afterwords: As some of you may remember, I acquired a Paul Reed Smith SE CU24 7 in amethyst purple a couple of years ago. Sadly, I wound up selling it a little under a year later as I needed the money at the time, and for some reason, it didn't quite jive with me and what I thought I wanted in a 7-string. Fast-forward through the next year and a half, and my regret grew with the passage of time as I remembered the amazing 3D quality of the purple flame-maple top, the way the neck was just right, the perfect marriage between a Wizard-II and the old Schecter necks...I could go on for days. Anywho, a couple weeks back, I decided to grab a cheap fiddle as a birthday gift to myself (It's on the 9th...if anyone is wondering, I come in a size general-admission of Bury Your Dead tickets), and I began scouring Reverb, Guitar Center Used, all that good stuff us guitarists use to get our GAS going. I considered Ibanez, Schecter, LTD, Douglas...pretty much everything under the sun save for my PRS I sold to my buddy, which he said he would sell back to me if I ever felt like re-acquiring it. Then the idea came to me one night, I messaged him to see if he was still ok with the idea, and fast-forward once again to today, and I am now again the proud owner of what is easily, bar-none the best 7-string I have ever played. I am so stoked that it's quite possible I grew a tail just to wag it in excitement, and I doubt the honeymoon period for this one is wearing off anytime soon, if ever. Will update later with outdoorsy pics, but even though it's dark out, I just had to show you guys this thing.
