    Hi, a friend and me are building a 7 string. We have already started the neck, which is going to be thru-neck. and we are trying to find a fingerboard. Any suggestions where to find a fretted 7 string maple fretboard? Also we are not sure what type of wood to use for the body. Any suggestions? we have a piece of walnut for the top. And i am deciding on a single pickup, either a 707, or a 707tw, any recommendations there?
    Thanks:hbang:

    i think nobody's can sell to you a fretboard.. till you have specs.. so i recommend SoulMate Guitars Home

    and elysian here.. but i think you should buy the whole neck and put.. the wings.. if you are using maple for the neck mahogany+walnut is really nice and 707tw is nice to
