You're welcome, Jon.

Alistair arranged to get them, but I believe my decision was made before he actually followed through. But I could be wrong. Of course, you can ask him.

The H-Ss could look good on an Opus guitar. I did consider the potential for a swap-out if I didn't like the H-Ss, but Sean advised me that there will be a screw hole that will likely show...on the back of the headstock, I think, which may not bother some...it would me, which was a factor in my final decision to just go with the 510s. If the X7 ships with the 510s as the default tuners, if you can't get the H-Ss, given that the X7 has less tension, maybe Alistair would still install the Gotoh Stealths. You could also ask him about that option.
