    Guitar looks awesome! I'm not really sure I dig how that post is set on the trem though, but other than that- looks to be a pretty serious axe.

    *edit* could it be that the bass string doesn't float with the rest of the trem? It almost looks from the picture like the B string section is set with screws while the rest of it floats.

    OHh!! That looks good!! :yesway: I love the figured top, and the faded blue finish! Throw in the fact that it's chambered or semi-hollow, and it's a win to me!!

    I wouldn't say I hate it, but it's not my cup o' tea. Similarly with the headstock, too curly.

    What does the chickenhead knob do?

    Hello! Custom 7-string Wilkinson? DO WANT!

    EDIT: Oh, wait... now i see what you did there. Nice. Very clean execution. It actually reminds me more of an Ibanez Artist than a PRS. Beautiful guitar! I like the custom mounting plate for the Kluson-style tuners, too! Lots of nice little details.

    I have to agree with this guy here :lol:

    Love the full scallop, looks great! I didn't even notice it until the pics were at an angle, very smooth execution. I've wanted to play a full scallop guitar for a long time now, closest I played was the JEM with frets 20-24 scalloped, which I have to say did help me with the access a bit. Not sure if I'd like that B string being tied down but hey, it's not my guitar! It still looks god like :bowdown:

    I really like that concept of the 7th string fixed and the rest on the Wilk. Really cool :agreed:

    And the scallop is making me think about scalloping my next 7 :lol: probably not but I guess only time will tell huh?

    looks great! I like the double cutaway style guitars, and the 6-string trem + saddle is a neat idea.

    I dig 'em.

    Now THAT is a jazz guitar! :)

    That licensed Floyd looks kinda blocky, though... hmph... but that's just me.
