Oni Seven String



Silky Oak body, Pau Ferro neck and fretboard. Oni custom pickups with EVH-style wiring. Auto locking tuners. 26 frets. All-access cutaway.

Lightweight comfort contoured body. Excellent balance. Plays like buttah. Recessed output jack. Set-through neck. Workmanship is honestly like nothing I've ever experienced before!






The tone from the bridge pickup is very tight and focused. It's got some balls, for sure. Neck pup is more of a throaty tone, but it sounds really smooth on the lower notes.

I don't know how he's done it, but Dan's really done it this time!

I'd like to thank Dan and Paul, and everyone here who helped me decide to get this one! Thanks a lot!

I apologize for my poor photographic skills. This is really something I need some clearer pictures of. The wood is truly gorgeous!

AKA Australian Lacewood. But it's not a true lacewood nor a true oak, from what I understand. wikipedia

I'll say that I paid about the same for my BC Rich MB7, which is a fine guitar, but this Oni is definately leagues beyond the BC Rich. I couldn't have obtained a finer guitar for thrice this price from a well-known custom shop like Conklin, Novax, or Manson.

Sweet, glad you like it!

I think the difficulty photographing the lacewood is related to digital cameras... something to do with compression or noise filters maybe? I had the same problem.

Congrats bostjan!

That's just one elegant & tasteful & drool-inducing guitar.

You've got a beautiful body style Dan


bostjan you mentioned the jack is recessed, is it in the edge or back of the body?

Here is a close-up (somewhat blurry) of the jack.

And to give some idea of where the jack is relative to the body:

I think I can do a little better photographing the wood with a soft sun light coming through a tanslucent window, but there is just no way to recreate the 3-d texture of the body...

And another picture of the headstock just for good measure


I believe the scale length is 660-710mm (26"-28"). My original intent was to keep this guitar tuned down a to A+D standard, but I've been keping it in B+E standard without any trouble and the tension feels just right. The lower frets aren't hard to stretch to at all. I can reach comfortably from frets 1-5 on the low B, 1-6 is a little stretchy, but no biggie, but I cannot reach from 1-7 on any of the strings.

The fanned frets are great! I've always wanted a guitar with a compound scale length after trying a dingwall bass and being amazed at the clarity of the low B.

Let me say that I have now played every fret on every string of this guitar and there is not one fret buzz anywhere. Not even a hint of a buzz. Anywhere. And I did not even touch the truss rod! On top of that, the intonation is less than 2 cents off. The high E, B, G and D were all dead on right out of the box.

That was exactly my experience about 10 years ago. Tried a Dingwall and was an instant convert to fanned-frets.
