    He's actually doing full on customs now, which is awesome. We didn't get much freedom with these since it was a run, but now he has his own custom line of stuff he's working on in conjunction with Carvin.

    Also the orange came out killer, that was my only real regret when I saw how it did come out. Almost looks like a lava burst.

    That's probably an option 50 spec. They have a couple of basses floating around with that kind of cutaway too. I was going to ask Chris H about it, to see if I could get it on a future build.

    Just got her today, love it so far. The piezo really adds an awesome dimension to it when mixed.

    My desire for NGD over that is flowing over.

    Again, really curious to hear the talk about the Keisels.

    not sure if this is the right thread to ask, but has there been any talk of new guitars coming up from them? im about to place an order for a dc7x, but would hate if as soon as i get it, a headless 7 comes out, or fanned frets, or a 27in tele, or even little things like a bolt on(i know that ones not likely) or other switching/control options

    I've only heard random rumors with various amounts of credibility behind them but if you're really concerned, NAMM isn't that far away and it'd be safest to wait until then for any big announcements.

    As a longtime and very happy DC727 owner, how are people finding their DC7Xs?

    Anyone can order one of those. The guitar porn run was just the first to offer the Cali burst to the public plus a couple other Touchs. Just call in and talk to Chris.

    Forgot to add that! You can buy them from Carvin direct, but if youd like to get a Kiesel treated fretboard you would need to call in directly. And Chris (Hong) is an amazing salesman. He will make sure you get exactly what you want.

    ~1k for a barebones, all the way to $2700 depending on how crazy you get with the specs.
