    Listing (for now) one of the nicest 7 strings I've come across, a Forshage Orion 7 semi-hollow. I actually discovered Chris' instruments through reading about them on this very forum, as well as other online outlets. I took a chance ordering this one, and am blown away at the workmanship and attention to detail throughout. The ONLY reason I am listing this is I want to order a custom 6 with Chris, and I can't afford to keep the 7 at the same time. (I am really playing almost all 6 string these days, and I can't let this beauty just sit on the wall).

    As an aside ; this was actually Chris Forshage's personal build- he's since built another one and I got this one from Austin Guitar House, on consignment by Chris. When I got it the action wasn't quite where I like it- Chris immediately offered to have it shipped to him and he worked his magic on it and it now plays like absolute butter. (of course you can raise the action if you prefer- I play with a very light touch so it's setup with that in mind). I also had him take down the slight glossiness to the neck and we went with a Tru-Oil instead, giving it an incredible smooth, satin feel.

    All specs are included below. Please see pics for condition. In my opinion, you'd be hard pressed to find something that sets it apart from a "new" one. It's that clean. (and I have babied it since I got it, only playing it in my smoke free studio).

    Comes with a custom fitted bag. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Price is $2500.00 USD. I will work with buyer for actual shipping, depending on where you are in the CONUS. Reasonable offers considered. (also- while I am new to this particular forum, I have been buying and selling for many years- I can provide numerous references from other forums, reverb and eBay 5 star feedback, as well as FB sales and trades I've done. Deal with confidence ).

    I am in the US and would prefer to keep it here- but I will look into the international shipping costs to see what's involved. (I don't believe I have ever shipped to Norway before)/
