    I know I'll be in the minority, but a singlecut 7 really isn't doing it for me. Maybe it has to do with the fact that they're all stacked up sideways, but I don't like them :shrug:. Nothing to do with the mockup skills, it's just me. Doublecut for me for sure.

    Mostly I prefer rosewood because PRS doesn't usually do much ebony. Rosewood is a far more common wood for them. I would dump myself in excitement if they offered maple though.

    Yes Single Cut 7 string will rule so hard The pickup rings 24 frets. The safe bet for metal players will change the pickups to D-Activators or the passive size Blackouts.

    I'd prefer a double cut, I've seen single cut 7s before, I want a proper PRS style style double cut.

    I'm also not feeling the singlecut.

    I love singlecuts :yesway:, and could handle a doublecut IF it was like the McCarty - singlecut feel in the doublecut package.

    JB, badass mockups sir.

    Singlcuts are nice, but I've seen em before :shrug: The regular PRS doublecut shape is more unique IMO, looks far better.

    As long as it has a veneer that ain't *very* dark grey, and it either has creme pickup rings or none, and the rest of the SE line's traits, Im good to go, wouldn't mind a Mira 7 at all either.

    Singlecut or Doublecut, I want a "PRS-ish" SE 7. That means set-neck, 25" scale, mahogany or korina body, maple or mahogany or korina neck, rosewood board. A 7-string intonatable stop-tail or PRS-style trem would be nice too, but I can deal with a hardtail bridge.

    You can pretty much garuantee it will be an all mahogany body with a set neck. Thats a big PRS trait.

    Riffer was actually talking about implementing a 25.5" scale neck-thru. That does not scream "PRS" to me.

    7 strings doesn't scream "PRS" to me either. I wouldn't want to tune to B or Bb on anything less than 25.5", anyway. :2c:

    PRS is going to have to average out what's in league with their "image" but also what's a practical orientation of the instrument.

    Zakk Wylde downtunes pretty low on a 24.5" LP so 25" shouldn't be an issue as long as you don't want low F or such. (He uses 70 strings for that, though)

    I used to have a set of those on my LP as well. They worked, but the action felt kinda funny, IMO. It's mostly a personal preference thing, I guess.

    Well, after noting that my preference would be to take the existing Singlecut and simply add a string...

    ...I'd definitely be curious to give one of those a try, and certainly wouldn't not buy one based on those specs. It's not what I had in mind (the "PRS vibe" with one more string), but it could be a pretty cool guitar. :D

    I'm trying to find a balance between the whole "shredder" market and traditional PRS market. I want to see if we can get a bit of both in the guitar without alienating one group of buyers. But I dont want to go the PRS Torero route and go full blown Shreddy McShredstein (even though the Torero plays awesome and I helped design it, woot woot!).

    Those are some pretty sick specs. You think they'll be cool with sticking those on an SE?
