Yup, after many years of want. I finally 'pulled the trigger' (as you Americans would say !!) and ordered a Sei 7 from Martin Petersen in London. I've admired his work for many years and, finally, I've placed an order. Spec goes like this: BODY Style: 7 string Flamboyant offset Colour: purple dye gloss finish Facing: Figured lacewood, full facing front and back Veneer: Pink Main body: Walnut NECK 7 piece neck - wenge and maple - headed. Headstock veneer to match body. Carbon fibre neck reinforcement FINGERBOARD 24 fret fingerboard with binding Birds Eye Maple Regular frets Side dots only Owners Signature at 12th fret HARDWARE ABM hardware. Black ELECTRONICS 1 Kent Armstrong humbucker 1 volume control Rout for preamp (possible upgrade later) Concealed coil tap button by output jack Neutrik jack ...and the first pics are in already in. Here's the lacewood which Martin had in stock. I'm so excited, but will have to wait 8 months for it to be completed. That's not so bad as I've waited years just to place an order !!
