well, i just got back from the namm show, and i have with me a new addition to the familly, finally. after much patient gnashing of teeth, i've finally recieved my hollow body 7 string. it's awesome - black with gold specs, matching headstock, birdseye maple board, synth/piezo pickups in the bridge. i'm in love. i'll post pics when i get em. now, all i have to do is get things lined up on the ole' fretted 8 string.
