    Ya... it's surprisingly comfortable sitting down.

    I didn't think the green would make the cut, but doesn't stop me from bringing it up on every "what color would you like to see" thread there lolol

    That guitar has a really beautiful top and it looks very edgy & sleek. I like the blue colour which pops out real well. How much did that guitar go for in $?

    That looks perfectly balanced and perfect for upper fret access too. Nice!

    I went to the website and I think one of the photos showed it, but where is the output jack located?

    Looks rad AF, btw.

    Please tell me this is a reflection of the light on the gloss finish.

    Sorry... been on vacation off-grid.

    Thx all!!!

    Wide-ish and thin. Plays similarly to my Ibby S970 6 string.

    I'm lying in wait to pick up a used X, V, and shark. Those are just super cool builds. I REALLY wish the V was in an 8 string, too. No one is doing a cool Rhodes style 8, and I want one.

    Family pic looks awesome! Hope you're enjoying the hell out of them.

    Run #11 is up, filled with 6 & 7 crackle X's and V's (debating a 7 in white/black or blue/black), flamed including a Dime Slime-like "Grold" finish (sick!), all with Floyds in 25.5 and 26.2 scale. Plus some killer HypeGTR flamed finishes. A Denim 6 will be coming my way. All of them have the new Blizzard/Concordia pickups, and I'm dying to try out the 7 string version of them.

    This is good to hear.

    Im so close to jumping on Run11.. Maybe an X 7 in crackle.. I was a little concerned about the fretboard radius... But even reading now, the 16" radius is pretty standard yeah.. Nice and flat?

    xiphos v2.0 improved, i love it

    HNGD congrats and enjoy!


    (BTW 16” is flat? Considered anyway? I thought 20” radius was flat, am i wrong in my understanding)

    Hoping Isidore can answer.. I had always assumed that 20" was 'the' flat board.. But looking back at my last 7 string - a Jackson JS32-7 - That was also 16"... and to me that was ideal.
