I am lucky enough to be working on some 8 string guitars for Mike Fabiano and Britton Shrum of Bermuda. So for starters here are the basic specs: Two 8 string guitars #1 - Right Handed #2 - Left Handed 30.2" Scale 24 Jumbo Stainless Frets Dimarzio D-Activator Pickups Black Hardware Hipshot Fixed Bridge Sperzel Locking Tuners Here are the two drawings. They aren't incredibly elaborate but they don't need to be. These are also just rough sketches I now have them up hanging on the wall at the shop. As I build the necks I will let the design sink in and move lines around as I need to over the next few days. So as far as wood choices go the guys gave me pretty much free reign to do whatever I wanted. So with that being said these are the two necks I came up with as they stand now. The neck on the left (#1) is Maple, Black Veneer, Walnut, and Lacewood. The neck on the right (#2) is Walnut, Black Veneer, Cherry, and Maple. Here is a spalted top that goes with #2. I have a box of parts arriving on Tuesday and then things will get hot and heavy on these two builds. I hope you enjoy. I hope to work quite a few videos into this and go a bit further than just a picture every few days. So please don't be shy ask questions and let me know what you want to see.
