    NGD: Skervesen Raptor 7 (56k = Djental Dam)

    Hey guys,
    This just arrived, so I haven't really had a ton of time with it just yet, so I will update with my thoughts, but so far I am digging it it.

    Given that this guitar does take a lot of cues from Blackmachine, I was curious to see how similar it might be. Interestingly enough, it feels very different not only from my Blackmachines but also from all of my other guitars. Even feels different from my BlacKat which they partially "ghost" built. I think that's kinda cool, very unique.

    Tonally, what I have gathered thus far is it has a lot of mid punch and attack, tighter in the low mids than some of my other 7s, but the low strings have this sort of lower timbre, reminds me of the tone you get from an extended scale even though it's 25.5. (I actually measured because I had to be sure!). I have to say I am pleasantly surprised to see how different my Juggernaut set sounds in different guitars, and this guitar is a prime example of that. More on that when I have some time to really check all the tones out!

    Anyways, here are pics:

    I love blue and I love quilt and I love blue quilt, but I think I like the back of that better!

    Or maybe it's just because it pairs up so nicely with that chair and pillow.

    Haven't seen any of your guitars with a split fretboard like that before. Looks awesome as always!
