Hey guys! Starting a build for a friend of mine. What he wants is a guitar with lots of sustain so it´s clearly gonna be a neck through design. He also wants the guitar to be fairly versatile as far as tone is concerned (acoustic type sound, metal and Djent sound........) so BKPs and a Piezo should be the weapons of choice! It´ll be made of: Ash body Ebony top 5 Piece Bubinga/Ebony neck Maple OR Ziricote fretboard H E R E I S W H E R E I N E E D H E L P!!! Enlighten me I´m unsure about the contrast between bubinga and maple... Ziricote and Ebony in the front not THAT win! ?!? ? and filled with: Hipshot Tuners Piezo Bridge with Preamp (probably Schaller) Bare Knuckle Pickups Aftermath set grabbed myself a beer tonight and started by coming up with a headstock... My friend wanted a pretty hardcore design like I did on my multiscale build (also in here: http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/lu...tions/182073-8-string-multiscale-project.html ) and since he was digging it a LOT I went and pretty much did the same thing after substracting 2 strings..... pretty pleased with the way it looks in my mind and as a papercut on my kitchen table... Please guys need some input on what to do as a fretboard.... something just crossed my mind... how ´bout ziricote and a binding made of wild african olive?!?! well that´s it for now.... hope to get going as soon as I´m free..... work sucks sooo bad!
