    Wonder how that angi 7 will go with it still retaining the 24 3/4 scale. Has anyone tried a 7 with that scale neck before?

    Reckon it's fine, since it'll be similar to those HGS models, except for a 7?

    Yeah, it may as well have HGS tacked onto the end of the name by the sounds of it.

    The through body stringing / Tailpiece construction has been carefully positioned to maximise the tension and stability of the guitar.

    HGS is meant to assist with intonation, not tension. Scale length is actually built into the neck mathematically, so even if you move the bridge back a few millimeters on a 24.75'' neck'd guitar, once you go to intonate it, the saddles themselves will be at 24.75''. The reason HGS was created was because lower tunings can be hard to intonate due to the amount of travel needed by the saddle. This is also why people have issues fitting 24 fret necks on 22 fret bodies and vice-versa.

    Here are my crappy iPhone pics so far. Just my first quick pass by the booth.

    Thank you for the photos. It's really nice to see some showroom/ display lighting shots without the sterile photography required for the site. It shows the colours in a more realistic manner, and I love them!
