    Rob is thinking about doing a small run as an introduction for the new 7S model 7 string and wanted to gauge interest:

    - 4 build slots
    - < 6 month build time
    - $1999 + tax/shipping
    - $750 deposit
    - mahogany or maple neck through
    - mahogany wings
    - plain maple or ebony fretboard
    - 4+3 headstock
    - 25.5" scale length
    - passive pickups
    - 1V / 1T / 3 way switch
    - recessed Tone Pros bridge-string thru OR Hipshot fixed bridge
    - Sperzel locking tuners
    - Single color clear, trans, or marbalize finishes

    This is the prototype guitar for the model:

    The top carve doesn't show very well in those pics, but it's the same carve as my green scarab

    A friend of mine may be interested but he hates toms as much as I do, any idea if Rob is willing to do a hipshot style bridge or trem for a bit more?

    Is a trem an option? Or do we have to stick with the TOM?

    This definitely interests me, depending on how fast the slots fill up whether I can get the deposit ready.

    Are there inlays on the side?

    I know right, it reminds me of marble stone in rosewood form.

    Proto fretboard is ziricote. Also, there are side dots on the guitar.

    ...Rob does some awesome paint jobs and unfortunately all of my KxK's will be "furniture style", so I'm in for one (assuming he'll do lefties for the run :D).

    I shall once I send a deposit.

    Also, I decided I might as well order a 7DC too. I've been lusting after one long enough.
