    Seven-string Kellys balance very poorly, so that might have been a factor.

    If the import has plastic sharkies, that's a total buzzkill. The problem for me is that, even if I had $5k to spend on a Jackson, it'd be one optioned out to what I want, not what Jeff Loomis wants. This isn't too far from that, I guess, but I'd want pickup rings, thicker neck, passive pickups, poplar wings, solid finish, etc. etc.

    That does look pretty nice and it should have a reverse headstock, my DK7M looks great with it.

    They need to find a way to make the headstock look less ridiculous. Love the easy access truss rod, best thing ever.

    Is that the standard 7 string pointy headstock? It looks bigger than usual there. Definitely needs a reverse headstock, or the 4+3.

    I was thinking the same thing. Those inline 7 (and 8) string headstocks rarely look cool, IMO. It's like the skinny kid with the giant head.

    And, wow, nothing like watching Jeff play to make a guy second guess ever buying guitars in the first place. Crazy how effortless he makes it look.

    It's the standard sized headstock, we just know the reverse one looks much better...
    That, and you can barely see the normally huge Jackson logo, so it looks bigger than it actually is.

    It's the same size as the one on the SLAT3-7. It's huge. That said, for the normal direction they have a point in that the B string would be at like a 35 degree angle if the spacing was like the 6 string headstock. Still, large.
