Hi to all there,i want to build a custom 7 string guitar,i have a lot of experience with woodwork,but i've never try that one. The specs will be:A longer neck,probably 10 cm longer than the usual,and i want to do a solid construction so i will make it neck -through. 2 humbuckers maybe active,i haven't decide it yet,and i think to put a fernandes sustainer. The bridge will be solid,no trem and stuff. I need some opinion for the wood,will pine do the work? It's the only wood available for the moment,i've read they use it on old telecasters,but will it work for a heavy metal guitar? Any advice will be acceptable thanks!
