So I'm a guitar snob...everyone knows it. Collings, USA-PRS, etc.
Saw one of these 7-string SE's in the local classifieds the other day and after a good dose of prerequisite mental anguish (should I, shouldn't I, I don't do Asian, etc etc) took the plunge for a lousy $500.
I am super impressed with these things! Fit 'n finish is exceptional, fretwork is topnotch, materials are high-grade, appearance is awesome, sound is great. Still not too sure what to make of this 7th string, but that's a different problem.
