    Beautiful axe! congrats!
    Is there a tonal difference between the older round bobbin and the latest version, featuring the new square bobbin design?

    Ummm I want to say I notice minor differences but they aren't big enough for me to describe it. Its also hard for me because my other Tremonti is set up in standard while this guitar is set up in B so its a verrrrrrrrrrry full, large sounding tuning. I will say they look absolutely killer though. I can't stop staring at them! They remind me of a more sophisticated EMG look haha

    I love a story with a good ending, especially about redemption of a lost soul that was obviously in the wrong hands!
    Did you get the tuning knobs replaced as well? They look like wood. I have a 2001 Tremonti Signature and it has the black tuning knobs. I like them more than the chrome ones.
    Also, how does the uncovered neck pickup sound compared to others you have that are covered?
    I love it that you got it back tuned to B. I'll have to explore that tuning some day.
    Happy new year with a new friend.

    Thanks for the kind words man! I did have them replace the tuner buttons - they are ebony. The uncovered neck doesnt sound much different to me than the covered one - mainly aesthetics. Happy new year to you as well!

    Hey Markie - can I borrow your couch?
    Looks like you will need a panorama shot with that couch haha
    When your 7 String is finished I don't think you will have time to take pictures after playing it
