  3. Wow!

    Just....wow! :eek: :D

    Very, very nice. That's easily one of the nicest 7s I've ever seen. I love the block inlays!

    Holy Optical Illusion Batman! :D In the second pic it looks like the third string is really thick over the pickups, then magically thins over the fretboard. Just a trick of the angle w/ the neck veneer.

    Anyway, very nice.

    I dig it, but the block inlays kill it IMHO

    Beautiful!

    One quibble,, It looks like it might have some baaadd neck dive,, the upper horn only comes to the 15th fret, combine that with the massive neck and :confused:

    Very nice!
    I like the block inlays and the "aum" symbol. Looks like it will feel good sitting too, with the way the bottom horn is curved. I am halfway through my first seven-string, and I hope it comes out as nice. Great work,

    Thanks everyone,
    The burl maple was actually leftover from another project, It was purchased from a local sawmill in Mass. As for the balance,it's perfect.
    It has more to do with the size of the body rather than the upper cutaway. And the beast weighs in at 9 1/2 lbs...

  17. Is it just me or does it look like you could land a Cessna on that neck?;)

    Very nice work Jon!
