Thanks Kurt!
It is a contemporary construction guitar, with lattice type reinforcement with carbon and elevated fingerboard

That's beautiful!! I want a 7 string so bad - I want to tune it to drop D so i don't have to constantly detune my E string to play some of my favorites. Is the neck wider than a classical guitar neck or is it more "modernized"?

Hello Clayton, thank you very much!
This guitar has its seventh string tuned in B.
The handle is 9mm wider than the traditional, to keep the distance between ropes. In the 8-string, if I'm closer the distance.
