    Well I sold a few guitars recently and decided it was time to pull the trigger with our Australian home skillet! :wub: Here are the specs on the build:

    (based in large part on Bostjan's ridiculously cool 8-string CF custom, thanks for having that built dude! :metal:)

    Oni Custom 7-string:

    Body wood: Sitka Spruce
    Neck wood: Sitka Spruce
    Fretboard wood: Acrylized Macassar Ebony
    Frets: 24 Stainless Steel Jumbo frets, Fanned frets
    Scales for fan: 25" on the high side to either 26.5" or 27" on the low side, tuned to B standard
    Pickups: Custom-wound Oni pickups - Bridge: Tone mixed between a BKP Painkiller and Miracle Man (hot and crazy pinch harmonics but still retaining clarity), Neck: Fluid tone with high articulation
    Special features: Carbon Fiber twill covering for strength, stability and asthetics
    Color: Carbon Fiber with a slight blackburst (almost like a silverburst with the CF showing in the middle) on the edges
    Controls: Volume, Tone (push-pull coil split), 3-way toggle
    Body Shape: Same as Bostjan's 8-string, even more contoured and sleek as there won't be a need for a huge control cavity without the piezo/synth PCBs in there :D
    Neck Carve: As close to a JP7 as possible :)


    Not sure if I left anything out but if I did I'll update it later! :D It's going to be a few months before updates as Dan has a lot of work going on so be patient for pics and whatnot. This is going to be extremely sweet though, I tell you that much! :yesway: Thanks again Dan, great chatting with you the other day! :wub:

    Also for those that either never saw Bostjan's killer 8-string custom Oni or forgot about how awesome it was, my 7 will be similar to this but with a neck pickup and 24 frets instead of 27:

    DIBS! :D

    Seriously, that's going to kick ass :yesway:

    My only comment is pure black Gaboon Ebony would look cooler with the CF black burst than the brown/black grained Macassar Ebony, but that's just my personal preference.

    Yeah I agree gaboon would be cool but I actually kinda dig the streaky ebony, it's going to be pretty sweet. :D

    You should lend me some of that money that buys you all these kickass guitars..

    Or one of your Carvin's.. That would do.

    +1 to that. All it takes is a little hard work and determination, then look at all the cool shit you can buy.

    That was bostjan's idea. He wanted something for some micro-tonal stuff.

    looks like a sweet guitar. I have always been interested in playing a guitar with fanned frets.
