    Like the green. I have to confess every time i see an ESP Snapper model posted on here i hear George Carlin's voice in my head go "A Snapper is a pussy!". That's neither here nor there though, and they seem like very nice guitars.

    What is a potalist? Is this related to weed? I thought it was very taboo in Japan. Whatever it is, it looks killer with the green pickguard and filling.

    This guy's playing is also really killer.

    I don't love it, I don't hate it...

    Still cool to see new Snappers.

    Snappers are very comfortable. I don’t have one of these, but I did purchase @cardinal ’s custom shop 7 string and I find them goddamned awesome.

    I still think Syu's Syunapper-7 is the best 7-string Snapper out there.

    I don’t like it at all. That looks like a random collection of specs to me. I’m especially not a fan of the generic neck/FB it’s paired up with. And the burl top seems really late to the party given that everyone and their sister has a burl top production guitar bow.

    The one thing I DO love is that pickguard. I’m not a fan of that shade of green, but that is pretty unique. No one else out there is doing that color, so that’s cool to see.

    By my count there's now 5 production 7-string Snappers. I appreciate that they make the distinction between them and the M-Sevens.

    I'm biased but 100% agree!
