I just ordered a customized Barbarian 7-string model from Wintersong guitars, I'm really looking forward to playing it! This is the first company I've seen in a long time that has awesome looks and makes their guitars to the specs I like, and at affordable prices, not to mention free upgrades to Seymour Duncans on most of their guitar models! Their newest addition and first 7-string added in the line, the Barbarian comes standard with a maple neck, mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard, 24 frets, passive electronics and a 3-way pickup selector. They are the first guitar company geared toward players of Black Metal, Folk Metal, and Viking Metal...right up my alley! (For example, their Skogen guitar [6-string] features Mjollnir [Thor's Hammer] inlays.) I'll post a response to this thread once I have the guitar in my hands, with links to some audio samples, and maybe even some video! Meanwhile check them out at Wintersong Guitars - Handmade guitars for the true warrior ! or on MySpace at Wintersong Guitars on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads ! Please let me know if you have played a Wintersong guitar!
