NGD: KxK Sii-7 Carve Top Sherwood Green "Scarab"

It's here! What can I say, the guitar is completely bad-assed and plays like butter. Even my pics don't catch how sweet the finish is, the green pearl looks absolutely amazing. I tried to take some from different angles to catch the curves on this and the paint, but the pics do not do it justice

Specs:
- KxK Sii-7 Carve2
- 25.5" Scale length
- White limba body, White limba neck
- Ebony board
- 12th fret hieroglyphic inlay
- Stainless steel frets, .095"x.054"
- UV style output jack
- Black hardware
- Black KxK logo
- Volume / Tone / 3 way switch
- push/pull tone for parallel neck pup
- BKP Painkiller calibrated set
- Sherwood Green Pearl finish
- Oiled neck
- OFR7

On to the pics (why is it no matter how thoroughly you wipe a guitar down you ALWAYS end up with some fuzz on the guitar in hi-res pics)

Couple notes: the trem cover will be coming off and left off the guitar so I told him to make it plastic, the raised screw is recessed like the others, it just needs screwed down (was going to take the cover off then decided not to screw with it before the pics)

That is one sweet guitar. The fit and finish on it look first class.

Translates to something like "Thoth lord (or maintainer) of Ma'at"... Thoth is the Egyptian god of knowledge, magic, and music among other things and Ma'at is basically a personification of the correct order of the universe.

Re: NGD: KxK Sii-7 Carve Top Sherwood Green "Scarab"

Thanks again guys!

On the price I ordered as part of a limited run quite a while ago, don't remember if the base price for that run was $1699 or $1999 + cost of the BKPs and IIRC there was an upcharge for the floyd.

I think there's going to be another limited run with a base price in the ballpark of $1999 at some point in the next couple months.
