Our newest 7 string (and first trem)

We did this on a custom order. It's both our first trem and our first serious inlay. The top is is an incredible piece of bubinga with a natural finish.

That's oustanding Jim, just as beautiful as can be. The color of the fretboard and the grain look fantastic behind the swan, it just looks perfect together. And what a top!
A magnificent instrument; you're in a class by yourself Jim!

Re: Our newest 7 string (and first trem)

Here you go gentlemen: 60 seconds of the middle position. You can write your own tone reports from this, but I think it sounds pretty good. Lot's of high end sparkle and a bit of middle position cluck.

As I e-mailed the owner, I normally play 11's on mine, so I personally find the 9's that are on it to be really thin. I've also never owned a guitar with a trem, so you'll have to pardon the little weany trem move at the end.

That is a seriously beautiful guitar!
I loved the very "warm" sound to the pickups too, sounds gorgeous. Very smooth and warm.

What were the pickups on this baby?
