    I've had this for several weeks but have been REALLY freaking busy so I'm just now getting around to posting the thread :lol:

    Specs:
    - KxK 7DC double cut
    - 25.5" scale
    - flamed mahogany neck / body with center ebony stripe
    - claro walnut top
    - ebony board
    - ss frets
    - custom inlays front and back
    - custom KxK P90-7s with walnut bobbins

    The guitar is absolutely amazing, it seems like every time I think Rob can't get any better, he does :lol:

    Pickups are awesome, low to medium output with all the growl you expect from a good P90 and surprisingly no hum through my Phaez JTM18.

    The inlays are flawless and you can't even tell the ones on the back are there when you run your hand over them. Inlays materials are walnut from the top, snakewood, bloodwood, boxwood, and maple.

    Enough chatter, on to the pics :D (there's a piece of grass on the top in the first four pics and a bit of dust here and there that blew on to the guitar while I was outside, don't mind them :wallbash:)

    Better looking than most of the girls I've dated.































    Kidding, but still a damn good-looking guitar.

    Holy crap that's beautiful! I really guitars without solid finishes so that you can see the wood, especially darker woods like this one!

    Big congrats! That is an amazing piece of art! :holy:And I agree with you on Rob's work. I think he's getting better all the time. I just got mine in yesterday and it's probably my new favorite. I'll post a NGD when I get time.
