First off I would like to thank @Damon67 for the guitar!
This is my first 7 string so i am getting used to the adjustment. Has some small QC issues mainly on the inlays and some slight areas on the fretboard, but really not that big a deal and when you look past it the instrument is solid. Nice and heavy, the satin finish is amazing, looks sexy as fuck in person, very resonant and is just killer.
I like the Hi-Power series pickups on my 6 string BCR but on here I am mixed. Might have to experiment a bit to see how I really feel.
Just getting these pics and shit out there. My full review on the guitar will come in a few weeks or in a month.
So far yes. Feels really solid. Can't have a complete opinion yet since it feels so weird to me, but once I start learning songs it will be better.
Trust me I will let ya guys know how I feel when I make a review on her. She is just sexy as fuck in person.
Nice! That looks solid. I like real pictures of guitars. When I originally saw the new B.C.'s photoshop pict's I wasn't as impressed, but now with real picts they do look really nice! Happy NGD!
Thank you very much!
Setting it up tonight in A standard
Fucking-A, man - that's sick! Congratulations! Looking forward to see your review after a while with this axe.
Sharp looking guitar! Love the binding too, very sexy. Congrats!
In person it is VERY sleek and stealthy man. Was not hoping for it to look this killer. The pictures really do not do it justice. The sleek black and abalone compliment each other so well
Your wife must not have been ok with the purchase if you have to shack up in a hotel. Looks great though, enjoy being in the doghouse with that.
The fretwork looks nice on the hi def pictures. Feeding my Ironbird 7 gas. HNGD.
Im 17 LMAO.
Dude I saw this on a FB BCR page and I fuckin nutted my pants. I am speechles son this thing. It just screams pure evil and brutality
Hey guys so an update:
So I setup the thing today for A standard. Everything has gone well with generally not as painful setup. I put Daddario 10-59s on there. Except for the tuning the 59 is just not gonna cut it. Trying to intonate it the saddle cannot go up far enough. It is also kinda floppy and sounds a little wobbly through my amp (was on very low volumes so I could be wrong on that analysis tomorrow).
Do you guys think I should get a .60 or a .62 for the 7 string? I feel the .60 might be too little of a change and .62 might be the change I need for intonation but might be thicc boi in the saddle and or feeding hole of the tuning peg.
Also I had a guitar tech briefly talk about when you have thicker strings on a 7, the floyd nut divot might not be big enough and might start to slip. Thoughts on this @MaxOfMetal ?
Also would like to add that I have installed a tremolno.
And I have noticed that when I was doing my truss rod adjustment just how fucking clean the cavity is! Probably the best on an import I have had up to date.
And the binding work on this is excellent
Oh, well then watch your language, young man.
Killer looking axe...I love it!! HNGD!!
For A on 25.5 inch scale i'd go 64 or up with string gauge. Anything less wont cut it. And i have a set of 10-64 on my floating trem equipped guitars and i've had no problems at all.
If you want to flutter i'd go lighter (9-46 with a 62) but if you have the tremol-no in anyways, id go for 10-64 or 11-68 if you want it real tight.
I want to be able to do trem stuff on it so a 62 would probably be my best bet.
Do you think I should maybe take out a tension spring aswell?
