    This went from annoying to awful to actually kind of funny.

    Sorry, guys, been camping all weekend. Can only stop by every once in a while. Another pic before I dump the rest of the artsy ones after I develop them (I shoot in RAW).

    I saw this and the black one at NAMM, and they were super cool. Felt nice to hold, and they both played well. So I can attest to both of them being worth it, depending on how the mass produced ones end up being.

    The action is super low, giving the sound a little click without excess buzz. It creates a very tight response because the mud is effectively canceled out from the start.

    It is a very comfortable guitar. You know how the top of an LP can dig into your forearm? Well, the forearm bevel here is just perfect, but the guitar maintains that LP carved top look for extra classiness.

    The color is growing on me. It's more of a grey-purple-blue that changes in different lighting depending on the color temperature. It looks super sharp.

    The guitar is very lightweight for an 8 string. The cutaways and bevel really help in this regard. The use of Swamp Ash also helps a lot.

    I have zero issues with upper fret access. The lower horn is perfect. I think even Rusty Cooley would approve. lol

    The tone is good, but I think I'd want to lower the bridge pickup so that the in-between tones are more neck-dominant. It's a little too squawk-y right now.

    The neck carve is like a Carvin with the back sanded flat. It's not a Wizard neck.

    The scale length is immaculate for what this guitar is intended for. Longer, and I think it sounds less 'vocal' and animated. Shorter, and the bassier strings sound less 'violent'. So I think the scale length is perfect for the pickups.

    The guitar stays in tune! The locking tuners are excellent. The bridge is stable. I still love the feel of the flatness of the bridge. Very comfy.

    Except for my 7 string Ibanez jazzbox, this makes my other guitars (LPs, Strats, superstrats) look a lot less classy. The Mystique shape is awesome.

    I'm at work, so I'll get more photos up this evening.

    The internet doesn't really take teasers well, does it?

    Because I kinda know how SSO operates, I wouldn't dare to do something like this but I give credit to this guy for having huge virtual cojones. :lol:
