Hi all, long time reader, first time poster. I need your advice on the wood for my custom 7. I've tried different wood combinations, yet I couldn't find anything that would suit the sound I'm looking for perfectly. The sound I want: - tight low end - I'm extremely satisfied with my maple neck thru + alder body + ebony board, it's just stupidly tight, love it - brutal roaring low mids - and this is the area where my Jackson Soloist doesn't shine.. In my custom I want something with more balls.. - upper midrange - again, love the aggressiveness of my maple neck thru, but it's too bright for my taste It's gotta be really responsive to my playing (once again, love it with my Jackson), dynamic sounding, with great resonance to it. Quick attack, nice sustain and definitely lightweight (about 3,5kg/8lbs) It will be soloist/caparison body, H-H, 24 frets and 26/26,5" scale. Fixed hipshot bridge, probably BKP's. Tight low end and strong upper midrange just screams maple, but I want more ballsy sound, more 'roar' to it. Probably I will stick with the neck thru construction, because of the heelless neck and overall sound characteristics that I like. Maybe I should think about bolt on construction, walnut body, maple neck and let's say ebony board (thinking Caparison )? I haven't played on any walnut guitar though. I don't know, I'm getting confused right now Hope you guys can help me!
