7 strings

Seymour Duncan JB http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/pro...ckup?sku=300513

Seymour Duncan Distortion 7-String Guitar Pickup(Black Bridge) http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/pro...ckup?sku=300515


2 tone knobs, able to split the two like they said they can

one volume knob floyd rose locking tremolo with lock on the bridge, on the nut, and on the tuners hehe, divebomb madness

all black hardware

custom inlays
a killswitch for something different and an automatic dampener

and one secret thing i cant tell anyone its gonna blow your mind

Bthw I have a professional helping me with all this so dont think its over my head haha if anyone has any recommendations please let me know!

it will take a looooong time. maybe a few months to finish. In the meantime, any ideas or recomendations for me to get an A+ would be awesome

I think you'll ace it with just the guitar... tongue.gif

Allthough, if you really want a A+++... Build an Amp as well! tongue.gif

THat's a great project man, keep us updated, and possibly write ablog out of it. I'm sure it will mean a lot to people who wanna try similar projects. I would be very interested to know it.

Well I'm pretty convinced you will get A+ if you manage to build a good working/playing instrument...And + you are making a 7 string - should be a monster !! smile.gif
