Quick pix of the new 7!!!

Just took some quick pictures of my new 7-string - not the best pics as the light was awful, but thought you might want a look! The first pic was taken with a flash and that's more the correct butterscotch colour of the guitar - the second two pics are a bit washed out.
It's a project I built myself using a Carvin thru-neck blank, so it's a maple neck with ash wings (flamed ash no less - very unusual), oiled and waxed finish (this one's silky smooth), ebony board, 24 fret, hipshot 7-string trem with locking tuners and graphite nut (so dive-bombs are still possible despite no locking nut!), Bareknuckle Warpig bridge humbucker and irish tour neck. It sounds massive, and sustains for ages!! And I'm really happy with the trem - it's really light to the touch but because it has a big sustain block you can still do trem-flutter like you would on an edge or Lopro.

Re: Quick pix of the new 7!!!

How much would you charge for one if you were to sell them?
