Really nice.Also, great choice with the B-7. So far it's the nicest neck pickup I have ever played.

Quick question about the maple fret markers, can you buy them already cut or is it a case of buying a maple board and cutting them yourself? In which case, what are you using to get such a thin cut?

You could cut them yourself from veneer. Once they are glued in and trimmed, they get a nice flush radius with the rest of the board.

Wow, that's one pretty guitar! Also, so many knobs :eek:

Master volume is a push/ pull for coil splitting in whichever magnetic pickup combination is selected. 3 way toggle. Master tone.
Next to the tone knob is a push/ push pot for Acoustiphonic volume/ midrange boost. Because the mag PU's run through the Ghost system, they also take advantage of the midrange boost. Very handy.
The 3 switches allow for Acoustiphonic/mag/both, midi/analog/both, and program advance.
The final pot is midi volume.

Another question, i read that the B6 (or in this case B7) emphasises the natural acoustic qualities of the guitar. How does this relate in to a solid body guitar?

The B7 is the solid body version of Benedettos 'S' series pickups. It's designed to convey the tonal qualities of the wood. In this case, maple and ash.
It is a sweet sounding neck pickup.
