Emerald Guitars carbon graphite acoustic 7-strings
 
I just ordered a 7-string acoustic from Emerald Guitars in Ireland. They're 1 piece carbon construction along the lines of a Rainsong or CA. Prices are excellent (although the conversion from Euros hurts a bit). They make two sizes, the smaller X10 and the jumbo X30. Both are availabe as 7-strings. I just put a deposit on an Opus X30. The 7-strings are listed under their custom shop, but they now seem to be in production. Given the scarcity of acoustic 7-strings, this may be the best option available.

Here's a link to their site and a photo of the Fusion model 7-string.

Hmm, interesting. Is it available in natural?

I don't think so, or at least it's not listed on the site. The closest would be metalic black. I would have prefered a natural carbon as well, but I'm getting one that he has in stock. It just happened to have a red top, so that's what I'm getting.

I'm about to move so I won't be getting it for a few weeks, but you can sure that I'll give a complete report once it arrives.

Thanks for the tip Jim. I like how a number of the 7 string photos on their webpages show the photogs in the guitar's reflections ;)

Not that that isn't pretty, but (sorry for the hijack) why not just build your own Acoustic seven Jim? Your craftsmanship, in my opinion, is fantastic, and your finishes absolutely blow that away.

^^ Yeah, it's the same guitar. It says right on the Vai.com page that it was made by Emeraldguitars from Ireland.

As for the lo-pro, I guess not. The guitar also has EMG's btw.

The model I'm getting lists for 1350 Euros ($1594). The 7-strings are only available as a custom shop order direct from Emerald, so that is probably non-negotiable. I'm getting one that hes been using as a demo, so the price was a little lower.
