Did you catch my post where they quoted me $6000 for a seven string version? No special top woods or anything. That's why I was so stunned as my custom 7-string Kelly has a spalted maple top and headstock and was a good amount less. That shape isn't part of the Custom Select so it will require masterbuilt, so be prepared for a price around the 6k range. God iI wish I could get one lol. Rev.
