Ooh, honeyburst on the spalted maple is going to look sick. Can't wait to see pics!

Yeah, for sure! I think the contrast with the honeyburst and the white logo and inlay will be dope too. I was debating on a thinner neck too, but I've heard that the 7 string necks aren't as cumbersome to play on as some other 7 string brands with a regular neck size.

Yeah, sounds like a good choice. Any idea when you'll get it?

Probably not till late summer, but the wait should be worth it!

It arrived today! I've been playing it nonstop. It came out better than I hoped and the easy and comforability to play is excellent! It practically plays itself and I love the sound. I might replace the pick ups with bare knuckles later but, it's definitely worth every penny!

That's a great-looking top! Very "flamey"

Thanks. I love how the spalted maple turned out especially with that honeyburst!
