It's impossible to photograph, and looks ridiculously cool in person. Sometimes it's blue, sometimes it's purple. The finish is marbleized, but you can't see it from a few feet away - it changes color and the marble starts to pop out the closer you get. It's overcast and gray outside today, but the next sunny day I'll get some better pics in good lighting - it's so understated, yet so elegant in person it's hard to describe. It's just a clean, great looking guitar.
Before I blather more, a pic!
Construction is absolutely top-notch. The neck joint is gorgeous, the finish is perfect, the fretwork, the intonation - everything. Dealing with Rob was excellent. Good communication, he shipped it right away, it was packed well and shipped in a really slick molded SKB case.
Here's a couple more pics...
Here's the specs. I haven't had time to sit with it yet and let it rip, but an initial 5 minute jam this morning before heading to work though my 6505 gave me the impression that I'm going to like the Custom/Jazz pickup combo. It's comfortable as hell and fret access is great.
- 7SC 7 string prototype
- 25.5" scale
- Mahogany neck thru Mahogany body
- 16" radius Ebony fretboard
- Tone Pros bridge-string thru
- Sperzel locking tuners
- Seymour Duncan Custom 7/Jazz 7
- Dunlop dual design straplocks
- 24 6120 dunlop frets
- 1V 1T 3 way angled output
- Flat trans Blurple with purple pearl over black marbalize.
And of course, some more pics! There's a lot of things that you don't notice at a quick glance - from the angled output jack, to the way the top of the body blends in with the side of the fretboard on the bass side of the neck, there's just a really high amount of attention to detail. Rob makes one hell of a guitar!
