Guitarist Kenny Hill asked me to make a lightweight 7 string to his specs. I used a pawlonia body reinforced with a walnut block so the tremelo posts wouldn’t ‘drift’. Roasted maple neck with carbon fiber reinforcement, rosewood fretboard and EVO frets. Topped off in Mopar Plum Crazy!
The second build was easier as I made a wooden template for the body shape to keep things on track. This one was to have the leather patch with studs attached. Customer also requested a boost circuit for the mysterious third knob.
Came out pretty nice, mildly reclic’d. Balances perfectly and plays very nice. Contact me if you want one of these!
