This guitar easily has the best neck of any 7 string I've owned. It even surpassed my Prestige Ibanezes. The scale length is perfect for me, and the stainless frets make playing so smooth. The action was low on mine, but I was able to make it even lower than I could normally since the frets were leveled very well. The bridge is comfortable, and the body is too.There honestly isn't much I'd change about it. It'd be cool if it came in different colors, so I could justify getting another, but I love the purple.
