    Looks nice except for the BKPs and ugly Gibson style volume knob.

    I'd like to try out these Strictly 7 guitars and see how comfy/thin the necks are and how nice/low the action can get on them. They seem nice... I've noticed a lot of Ibanez players switching to them lately... but playability is always the make it or break it for me...

    I agree. Those battleworn pickups look so contrived. Like something out of a Disney set.

    bright sound, very punchy and clear well controlled low end.
    helps a lot to get that percussive/staccato yet also great for leads sound that the Djent style requires.
    and it looks just gorgeous

    Swamp Ash is a great tone wood, tons of clarity and very full/thick sounding.

    do you mean that the front that on the front pic it's just one piece?
    that's nothing new, you can do this, don't know alot of companies right now that are doing this
    but a friend of mine built 2 guitars and a bass that were neckthrough but with a 1 piece body.
    You're neck doesn't have to be as thick as the body on the whole length, so you can just
    cut out a half of the thickness (I hope you get what I mean) and glue the neck
    in there, that
    way you have a one piece body without a problem, it's just a bit more difficult to do.

    but yeah, the picture sure is edited ;)

    1 piece pf body in the mass production is more expensive because:

    -you need bigger pieces of wood that is good for production and that
    means automatically more expensive because it is not so easy to managed when you need to make many guitars.
    small pieces are also fine and there is much more of them than the bigger ones

    -usually the body getting cut to 2 exactly for the same reason as neck laminate, Stability.
    wood is a biological and "a live" material that even after proper drying still can respond
    to humidity and temperature changes causing unwanted results like twists, bows and so on.
    to avoid this problem the pieces are getting glued together so
    that when one would try to "go to the unwanted direction" the other one
    would prevent it because of it wood inner structure.
    in other words, one force cancels the other.

    Gotta say... I don't like the look of those Sperzel machine heads on anything other than 3x3 headstocks...

    Otherwise, looks nice.

    not sure what to think of this...it's like for every awesome feature, there's something else totally lame/cheesy, so in the end i'd say i'm pretty neutral...sure it would be a fun guitar to jam on, though

    Does anyone on the forum have a S7 that isn't endorsed? Just curious how they are. The hype machine is solid but I haven't actually seen one.
