    Sweet! And if it helps, I've played a Swan 7 and it's maybe the most comfortable 7 string I've ever played. The weird shape body is really ergonomic, especially for sitting in the classic position. And the curves and bevels all fit nicely around how you sit.

    Sounded fucking mean too

    Update time, picked my top. I wanted a 1-piece, flamed and swirly burl top to accentuate the organic Swan shape and I really feel this one will look fantastic once it is stained and glossed to bring out the depth. Spectacular piece of wood.

    Stain applied, the gloss will make the color even deeper. They NAILED what I asked for .
