Well ever since I can remember I have wanted an N4 (20 years or so). I am a huge Nuno fan. Yet for some reason I never got got one. Probably the fact that the N4 is more suited towards hair metal style playing than modern metal. Then in 2011 the N7 came out and i was like Oh shit. A 7 string N series with Duncan Distortion in the bridge. Now you have the best of both worlds. So I finally said screw it I'm getting one. I haven't really got to play it much as I just picked it up from the UPS depot. I can tell you it is super light and extremely resonant acoustically. The neck is fantastic as is upper fret access. Fretwork immaculate. Played it at low volume and it sounds great. I love it.
is that basswood?
