I prefer the newer bevels... it just looks more balanced, and like it accentuates the shape. :shrug:

i think i like the bottom bevel better than the uneven looking top one... i dunno, the top one seems to make the body look smaller to my eyes...
Well, I started out thinking that I liked it better until you pointed that out. :lol:
I just with they'd do away with the upside down inlay and ditch the binding on the neck.

Hmm, I can't decide if I like it or not. I think I prefer the original bevels though.

I didn't realise how uneven the top one was till then either :lol: I just thought they're way to big

I think they look better on the six-string model for some reason.

That said, it does make the 'chameleon' finish really stand out a bit more in pictures.

I've got to agree with this. On the 6 string, they look cool. On the 7, I'm still not sure. I'd probably buy a "new bevel" 6 if I was after one, but I still think I'd hunt out an "old bevel" 7 if I got one. And I do want a Xiphos 7 rather badly.
