    did you get this without a case?
    Looks pretty cool, I kind of miss my old Loomis once in a while.

    Yeah this is why I always opt to have a guitar shipped in a hard case if the option is available. I've been lucky, but the UPS horror stories worry me.

    You know, I wasn't too impressed when it was first announced these were going to be coming out in flat black, but in person I dig it a lot more than McDonalds color scheme of the red one. :agreed:

    Congrats man, and sorry about UPS. Why anyone still uses them when USPS is cheaper and typically less accident prone is beyond me.

    It was in a hard case, that's the annoying part. It's obviously been thrown around. This is the first time I've had any UPS damage and it's not even that big of a deal so I'm still thanking my lucky stars, it could have been way worse than what it was.

    The difference is this got here in about 4 days from the states, USPS would have been 2 weeks.

    I was hoping to have it for the show we played on saturday night but alas it was just a little bit late. The real crappy part is that we just went on hiatus to find a new drummer and bass player so she won't be seeing any live use for a little while. :(

    How the fuck did they manage that through a hard case?!?! Ah well, shit happens I suppose, looks like you did a great job on the repair.

    Awesome guitar!

    How's the sound? I'd guess that the Maple and Ash would give an overall brighter tone than a lot of other 7's... is this the case do you think?

    It is quite bright, but it's also very thick very "big" sounding. Ash as a tonewood is has less pronounced mid range and more highs and lows. The rounder tone of the 707s balances well with it but I still had to back off on the 6600 slider on my Mark V.

    Thanks to everyone for the rep and for the compliments on my repair skills. I nearly failed wood work in high school but a good clamp and a little PVA goes a long way. :lol:

    Sick guitar dude congrats.
    I almost waited to order the satin black also, but ended up going crimson. I like the visable grain with that version.

    enjoy your (3rd) Loomis!:shred::hbang::shred:
