Yo! My 7 string project

Recommended Posts

Hi peoples, my first post here :D

Here's my idea for a 7. I'm using sycamore as opposed to maple as I have acsses to a good cheap source. Should be similar enough.

Sycamore thru neck, with some mahogany on the bottom of the body bit.

Mahogany wings.

Somthing exotic and cool on the fretboard.

What do you think? Hopefully the extensive maple would balance out the muddines of the mahogany on the low b, whilst still leaving some nice warmth.

Basswood.. oh no man.. not on a selfbuilt guitar form scratch :D

It can sounds so much better if you use a great tonewood like ash or alder. Or licht ash. There are enough woods that weigh as much as basswood, but which sound much better.

But then again, it depends on what kind of music you play B)
