The OB2 is the second 7-string that we made for Ole Børud of Extol. Going into the build, Ole asked that we essentially make a 7-string version of his OB1. Accordingly, we used the same Flamed Maple/Alder wood combination, but decided on a higher gain HSH set of Bare Knuckle pickups to lend the extra drive needed for Extol.
As the first EQS 7 prototype, we couldn't imagine a better candidate to road-test the EQS than a player such as Ole. With writing styles ranging from technical metal to soul, r&b and beyond, we knew that Ole would put the axe through it's paces and test the essence of the EQS concept: complete stylistic versatility.
