Re: Muhammed SuiÁmez's 7 String Xiphos

Looks just like I predicted, except apparently black hardware, necrophagist inlay and locking tuners?

I reckon a production model will just be a 7 version of what's out already, but with direct mount pickups.

It's cool they've done the Xiphos in black for production now, I know most people hate black but it's alright as long as there are other colours.

About these SD blackouts, is everyone converting to them from the EMG 81/7s then? Dino now uses them, one of the Dimmu Borgir guys now uses them...

Almost every guitar store I have gone into that has them says that they sell like 10x more than EMGs, they are cheaper, and FAR better. I even saw them in a boutique guitar store in Kentucky!

Re: Muhammed SuiÁmez's 7 String Xiphos

I wonder if Muhammed is Muslim. Suicmez doesn't sound German either.

Mick Thomson uses blackouts now too.

He's of Turkish descent, but a German citizen, as far as I understand.
