My KxK Sii-7 Custom

I just realized I never posted pictures of my KxK Guitars Sii-7 custom here. This guitar is absolutely amazing, KxKs work is second to none. I only wish my limited photography skills could do it more justice.

Specs:
- 24 fret 25.5" scale 7 string
- 3 piece maple neckthrough
- mahogany body wings
- blank birdseye maple fretboard
- custom abalone Eye of Thoth body inlay, matching abalone KxK logo
- blue marble finish
- BareKnuckle Nailbomb bridge and Cold Sweat neck pups
- Graphtech Ghost piezo system
- Graphtech nut
- Sperzel locking tuners
- Dunlop recessed strap locks

Re: My KxK Sii-7 Custom

I absolutely love this guitar, man. Congratulations on acquiring it!

If you don't mind, could you say how much you paid for it? I can't see anything wrong with this guitar and I'm kinda interested in getting one maybe...

...oh, and is the neck pretty thin? Like, Prestige Wizard thin?

Re: My KxK Sii-7 Custom

I got it on a special introductory deal on the Sii-7 model that KxK did for sevenstring.org. I think that at normal pricing it would be $2799. I would suggest checking in on the KxK guitars website after January first, as they're revising their prices and models then.

The neck is .75" at the first fret, so it's very similar to an Ibanez profile. The neck has a nice C shape to it, and is amazingly comfortable.

Re: My KxK Sii-7 Custom

I said it over on sevenstring, I'll say it again here, the thing is stunning!

Rob really does make some amazing stuff. Every single bit of his work has impressed me from what I have seen of it.

Re: My KxK Sii-7 Custom

In Egyptian mythology one eye is the Eye of Ra the other is the Eye of Thoth and together they're the eyes of Horus the Elder.

Links are fixed now as well. Also I cleaned the frets and restrung shortly after the photos were taken lol.

Re: My KxK Sii-7 Custom

hehe I took some artistic license with the proportioning... I was going for looking good as it's not a ceremonial piece
