Custom seven string I ordered

Ok guys,

it has been actually almost a year since I've had it commissioned but haven't had the opportunity to but up any thread or pictures(few pictures now will add more later).
It was made buy a rather new and young builder and this was his second guitar.

Specs:

7 string 24 fret - 25,5 neck
Swamp ash body
Maple/bubinga bolt on neck
Ebony fingerboard
top covered in ebony veneer
Cream body and headstock binding
Hipshot hardtail bridge
Hipshot locking tuners
Bareknuckle aftermath 7
1 vol

Yes I know it is corny but I got the headstock shaped like caparison and the body is ibanez/blackmachine

Not a fan of the Caparison headstock design, but that's just me... Otherwise, that guitar looks awesome, congrats!

I might find some clips, we have recorded a demo song with this guitar, but since it isn't public I can't share it yet.

The builder has a blog, but it is in Estonian unfortunately but if anybody is interested I can give his contacts so you can chat in person.

I really dig how the headstock matches and contrasts the body in a good way.

Ok, I spoke to the builder and his is going to create a separate blog(maybe even a website) with pictures and descriptions about the work he has done with build pictures and contacts.

Also you should talk to him about pricing, we had our own deals so I can't really talk about that.

Looks good man. Nice choice on the headstock.

but if we talk abouts, this kind of a guitar should put you back around 1000-1100 euros+shipping and a case, all depends on the wood, parts(because getting hipshot bridge and machine heads - he had to order them from US so shipping + taxes), but if he uses ABM or shaller or stuff like that than the price will be lower. This is not his day job but he does build them fairly fast(mine took around 2 months).

I really like the ebony veneer - I have considered doing it on a V - to keep it neat and black, without having that piano black finish, which I can't relate to anymore (yup, growing old and grumpy).
Nice build mate!

As I'm wrapping up my first build, I can say that I'd be quite elated with those results. Not a flat top fan, but that looks very nice.

One observation: what's up with the "I ran out of neck laminate material and just used plain maple for the headstock" look? I think I've seen other guitars with this look too, but there's something off about it, to me. Not meant to be a knock, I just like to know the "why" of things.

MAXOFMETAL: It's okay, words are funny. While I see how you could have thought that I meant "ignorant" in the form of, "Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.", when in actuality I meant it as "Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular", which is far from an offence.

I'm sorry you're being so defensive.

It's less wasteful of the wood. A picture is worth a thousand words.

The one piece would require a much thicker piece. If you think about it, the one piece method is going to cost you alot more in neck wood because it'd need to be basically two or three times thicker.

As I can often confuse MYSELF, I can only assume my observations and question confused you as well. The scarf joint I totally get, but the other images on the page you linked included the method I'm surprised wasn't employed on this particular neck: Using a blank that could turn out a Fender style neck with no angle, but instead cutting the scarf joint and flipping the small end over for use as your angled headstock. We've all seen it done. I just figured it'd be nice to see the neck laminate woods running the full length of the headstock.

As it was with my first neck build, I got two angled headstock, bolt on necks from one blank, eliminating the need for a scarf joint on my first build in an effort to keep things simpler.

Hi actually the headstock piece is also made of swamp ash. Now if you ask why, well that is more of a question of design and personal taste, yes you can make a surgically clean and nice everything is done symmetrical - like it was built by machines, but some times I personally like some thing raw and rough and little bit uniquer.
