So, on my way to a jam session, stopping at a guitar shop along the way, as I am want to do, saw this used guitar that had been there a little while, and that particular day it seemed interesting to me for some reason. I’ve never even touched a 7 string before this past weekend, and still not sure why I felt the need to get this. Maybe due in part to my passionate desire for PRS guitars, and this one seemed a very nice example that would be a great addition for me. I didn't try it out, other than picking it up, feeling it, looking it over, strumming it a bit, and all seemed well, it was in great shape and felt wonderful. Talked to the salesman, we worked out a good deal, I bought it and took it straight to the jam session. Immediately upon arrival, I handed it to the lead guitar player, and asked if he could show me how to use this thing. After much oooohing and aaaaahing over it, he plugged in to his amp and we all watched in amazement while he just tore it up! I mean he played it like he had owned it for years, and this guitar sounds absolutely killer! Clean, driven, rhythm, lead, all sound fantastic. After several minutes of aural awesomeness, he put the 7 string down, we took a break, and then proceeded to jam as usual. Afterwards, back at my place, I tried it out with an amp for the first time myself, and it is really fun to play, and a great new learning experience for me. The fit/feel/finish are all excellent, everything works perfectly, and there is little-to-no fret wear. It has mild swirl marks and a couple of small dings here and there, but overall in very good condition. Although it doesn't sound nearly as good in my hands, I am really digging the new sounds I can get with it compared to a 6 string. The middle switch position is especially nice for heavy gain stuff. I tried some different tunings, drop A, drop D, but they didn't sound as good as the standard tuning with low b. I guess I really need a longer scale length for the lower tuning, but I won't be there for a long time, so this will do nicely for my intro to 7 string land. The pups don't look stock, they look like a SD Alpha and Omega set, but they don't have Seymour Duncan on them. Not sure what they are. Anyone else have any experience with these, guitar and/or pups? Anyway, some pics, and the color is really dark, Royal Blue? It was hard to photograph and get the color right, but you can still see that it has some nice figuring on the veneer. The birds look like pearloid or something, not solid like my other SEs.
