7-string Singlecut

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone. This is my first post. I am not a guitar builder, but I am looking to have a guitar built for me, specifically a Les Paul speced body with a 7-string neck. I have contacted a few builders so far (ESP, Abyss, and Heatley) and so far have been only satisfied with the price range for Heatley. I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions for any other luthiers and any recommendations you can make for the guitar I am interested in. The specs I am looking for are as follows:


-Mahogany back (not chambered)

-Carved maple flame top

-Body thickness similar to Les Paul Standard (a little less than 2 inches)


-Mahogany neck

-Rosewood fingerboard

-25 or 25.5 inch scale neck (Still haven't decided on this. I like the feel of 25 better, but everyone is telling me that 25.5 is the recommdende minimum for a 7-string.)

-22 fret neck /w SBB216-195 fret-wire

-MOP block inlay on 12th fret only

-Similar neck profile thickness to a LP 60's slim taper neck (I have the specs if needed)

-12" fretboard radius

-48mm nut width

-Bone nut


-White binding on body (top only) and fretboard. No headstock binding

-Chrome Sperzel locking tuners

-Chrome Stop Tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge

-Chrome Strap buttons

-Black 3-way toggle switch on upper bout, like a Les Paul

-2 volume/2 tone knobs. Black speed knobs configured and placed like a Les Paul

-EMG 81-7 Bridge p/up

-EMG 707 Neck p/up

-Black Pickup Bezels

Thanks for any help.
