Must be in our family DNA. My nephew said look closer and his uncle did. Poor Jim is still looking. That's OK Jim, Mr. K is a trickster as well as a Kramster and you'll note that he did not give away any comparison shots. Eventually, when he feels like it, he'll tell you what to look for--I, on the other hand have chosen to just torture you a bit more (Since I'm starting to run out of waiters).

Oooo, very observant. I was too busy salivating on my keyboard to notice.

Congrats Kramster! When do we get the rest of the story and pics?

Patience is so overrated, and so are grasshoppers for that matter. Now shrimp tacos, on the other hand...

Looks like a 24 fret X10 (14+10), the X7 has 20 (12+8). Congrats on this lovely guitar.

It's an X30 with a custom itty-bitty headstock? You know, for more room for shrimp tacos in the gig bag?

So I think I see what happened...it seems yesterday I ended up with this set...which might explain some mix up in photos of head and body not necessarily matching ... well matching some what...and also why I had 2 large boxes...also 2 more small boxes came in as well but look exactly like some photo backdrops I ordered, so never mind this part....anyway look here...

Go get em Mr. K. Hook, line & sinker. Also--two? You have two hooks out? That is a bit outrageous and deserves some censoring by a moderator. Or wait a minute, are you a moderator or a disruptor? Hard to tell.

So, one photo with an X7 headstock, the other with what may be an X10? Now, if that is the case, I would really like to hear a comparison/review. I've been out touristing about on the scoot today, so didn't have the opportunity to get all worked up... sorry, Evan.

Good for you, Kramster - seems you like to get 'em two at a time.
