    Mannnnn that ebony fretboard is awesome! Suuuuper black and just creamy and plastic looking (in a good way!!) Almost doesn't look like wood!

    Edit: I, uh, didn't read the post correctly. And now the above makes sense lol richlite looks cool!

    That thing looks amazing!! I've been interested in possibly picking up a 7 string of this model but something about the top contour looks like it might be uncomfortable to play and dig into your arm...what are your thoughts?

    It's definitely not bad at all. I haven't had it long enough to play a live set with it yet, but as far as sitting and playing for hours at a time goes, the edge of the guitar doesn't dig in or pose a problem.
