O3 Blue Cat custom

Hi there to everyone:

I don't post too much here on jemsite.com, i'm more into reading and learn.

This post is for to show you a seven string that a luthier made me, I haven't yet, until monday hehehe, so I'm pretty nervous by now.

The guitar is an all mahogany body and neck with sperzel tuners, ebony fingerboard, blue mirror dots and inlays, an H-H configuration with bartolini pickups (4d-01 and 4d-03) (THANK YOU FRANK), a push pull in the tone knob, etc.....

That's translucid black, I love how the mahogany looks, tired to see other types of extra AAAA, I like this one:





Yes, it's not plastic, it's mahogany too:





Blue mirror dots and inlays:

Wow that thing is gorgeous, congrat's man! I assume it is set-thru construction? The neck joint looks similar to a set-thru guitar of mine.

Nice 7-string man! What pickups do you have in there, I don't think I have ever seen them before?

That's a great looking guitar, looks very well crafted. Who was the luthier that made it?

Very attractive instrument. Those inlays are out of this world, what is the material?
