    If that's the new model in the picture, that neck looks pretty long....

    Some sort of baritone maybe?

    Looks like something along the lines of a RG.

    I hope that whatever it is, it's hideous and unappealing. That way it won't bother me so much that their international pricing model has priced them right out of what I'm willing to pay for one.

    So I have some forensic photography software, and I zoomed in on his headphones, measured them, and then measured the length of the neck. Using estimated parallax to calculate the distance from the camera to the earbuds vs the camera to the neck, and figuring a ratio from the size of the measured earbuds to known earbud size standards, I was able to calculate that the neck is 27". So there you have it! We finally have our 27" 7 strings!

    Actually, I'm just bullshitting. I have no such software. I'm not a forensic photography analyst, but I play one on the internet.

    You should've used the reflection of the guitar's body in his retina to compose a computer rendering of what it's going to look like while you were at it.

    We just need someone to "hack" their public photos and cut to the chase before we get into a pic by pic teaser fest.

    Actually, now that I look at it, WTF is he doing in that picture? It looks like he's used a band saw on a completed neck through. :scratch:
