    Hmm, I feel I should be doing some googling. I don't like the finish on that, and I'd love a trem, but I can deal with the 25.5" length....

    Alright, I need somebody to find that guy taking the picture of the tags, and get a price for me, every video has been way too blurry to see the actual text on the card. :lol:

    Can't help but think a V in Magenta Pearl below would be sick.

    I used to be on the same school of though, but I've grown out of 26.5"+ scale sevens. The shorter scale instruments just sound better to my ears. Unless you play in tunings lower than Drop G# and A standard, I feel the loss in tone doesn't outweight the string tightness.

    From one of my dealers:

    Stainless Steel Frets will be standard on USA Models, with Nickle optional for those who want it.

    Yey!

    I actually didn't care for the feel of the stainless frets on my DC7X. :shrug:

    Some more info from my dealer.

    The USA M-II 7 String WILL have the option for a floyd rose this year! Also more pickups options such as more Duncan and EMG Options. They will be flexible on options like say you want just one pickup, no inlays or abalone inlays, ect. Also the V Will have flamed top and solid finish options. There will be more options and specs coming out soon as well. They really did well with this line up.
