    Hi Guys ,

    I'm going through some build options with a few luthiers before making a final decision. Need your opinions on the builds please.

    Build 1
    Body - Northern Ash
    Neck - 5 pc Wenge/ Bubinga
    Fretboard - Ebony
    25.5-27 Multiscale - Straight at the 8th fret
    BKP Juggernaut pickups
    Oil and Wax Finish
    24 Frets

    Build 2
    Body - Limba
    Neck - 5 pc Wenge/ Mahogany
    Fretboard - Ebony
    25.5-27 Multiscale - Straight at the 7th fret
    Instrumental SFTY3 pickups
    24 Frets
    Satin Nitro Finish

    Build 3
    Body - Swamp Ash
    Neck - 1 pc Wenge
    Fretboard - Ebony
    25.5-26.5 Multiscale - Straight at the 8th fret
    Instrumental SFTY3 or Juggernaut pickups
    24 Frets
    Oil finish

    Thing's I'm looking for:
    1. Smooth, glidable wood on the neck
    2. Not too heavy weight wise
    3. Punchy lows + snarly/clear mids and not shrill highs :)

    Playability/ Good sound for - Leads, riffs and chords - both clean and distorted.SFTY3 or juggernauts ?

    Do let me know if I need to add more information to the OP.

    Also, to multiscale or not to multiscale - I currently have a 25.5 scale Agile. B string is a bit floppy. How difficult/ easy it to play chords on a multiscale guitar?
