My new Vader 7 arrived this past week and I couldn't be more stoked!
I got around to taking some photos this afternoon, so here she is:

I like that. Nice build. Congratulations!
Is that an 'All Seeing Eye' on the back? :wink:

It's cool. It really doesn't require much adjustment to get used to. The biggest difference to me was how light feeling it is. Coming from a Walnut DC727, the Vader is way lighter. The tuners aren't as effortless to use as traditional tuners, but they aren't a hassle by any means. Overall it's just a really fun guitar to play.
