    Havent had a great deal of play time on it yet(and minimal experience with 7s) but this thing is a beast! Build quality is solid a step above the indian x series models for sure. Finish is superb and the binding on the neck and headstock looks great.

    Only cons ive deiscovered is the pickup selector placement is very hard to reach if you have the trem arm on, but a little adjustment to how swap pickups makes that a very small con.

    The other con is the EMGs not a fan of them at all, will be taking this to the guy that does all my tech work and see what we cant work out to fix that with some passives

    HNGD man! That looks awesome. May I ask who you purchased it through? I am also looking to pick up one of these at some stage ( I was thinking the green!). Been looking at online US stores due the less expensive overall cost.

    Congratulations man! As far as the pickups go, you're gonna have a hard time with passive pickups due to the stupidly large EMG routes- PLEASE consider the SD blackous. I own a set and they're very close to passives in response.... I highly reccommend them and they'll drop right in- no need to rewire the active system. Definitely the best way to go in this case.

    I love this thing the most of all of the X 7's. What does the trem say on it? (Floyd Rose [something]).

    dkannen - Yeah the emg routes are going to be a pain in the arse, but ive looked into emg sized housings so i should be able to get some passives sorted

    aawshred - Yeh they are awesome guitars! your trans-black is a great looking guitar

    GXPO - Thanks for checking us out means alot:hbang:

    Valnob - Its a caparison horus, same thickness as a soloist

    oremus91 - It a Floyd rose Special bridge
