Ok so it's not quite brand new, i've had it about 6 weeks. Only just got round to taking some decent pictures! This is my first 7 string, but I have played quite a selection of others including Mayones, Caparison and the likes! This being my first foray into 7 strings I didn't want to splash out too much, and the PRS gave me the best quality and feel in the price range. The neck profile is perfect, the build quality I can't fault and the sound (with stock pickups too) is incredible. The pickups have got a real nice midrange honk to them which I like and through my rig sounds great. I haven't got round to recording with it yet though, but i'm sure it'll sit nicely. Then there's the look, whilst there is no flame on this top like I have seen in other examples of this guitar in the same finish, it does have a real heavy spalt, which I think is even better! Upgrades may come in the future in the form of locking tuners and hipshot bridge, and maybe a new bridge pickup (the neck is perfect) but for now it's a great first 7!
