    I wish Alexi Laiho dabbled in 7 strings so he would have a 7 string sig. I know I could just get an E-II or something, or custom shop to do it.

    I've always wanted a 7 string Jagstang but with 26.5 scale and a Wilkinson trem or a 7 string version of that Page Hamilton sig with the cockstock & brushed aluminium finish.

    where are the real dreams?

    I have read quickly the comments and a few of them can be achieved. Quite a few is a simple case of "get a warmoth build". Others its a case of a color finish, if thats whats stopping you from your dream guitar, then get it refinish, if its your "ultimate" guitar, then theres no need to worry about resale value. Other comments are more into the "a cheaper version of X", then the guitar does exist, its a matter of finances. Even one which the answer was "jsut change the pickups"

    give me the impossible guitars. The 24 fret Iceman with 3+3 headstock, natural back, thin neck, 16" fb, flame top, binding, no inlays, hardtail, 1" multiscale kind of guitars

    :)

    Axe Palace has done a few RGD 26.5” scale limited runs with similar specs. Like the matte road flare red RGD7 string

    Mahogany body but add maple cap.

    Make it a baritone 28" scale neck through 3 piece maple neck, with volute.
    Richlite board with stainless steel frets black binding on fretboard with blue luminlay side dots.
    12th fret MOP inlay of the dragonfly 925a4d77d797adbedd21e581ee44ae34.jpg

    For pickups throw an EMG Het Set in.
    Callanham steel bridge and tailpiece and hipshot locking tuners.

    oh and make the input jack recessed on the back.

    I mean I wouldn't mind a PRS custom 24 baritone scale with a single Bareknuckle Ragnorok on the bridge. Roasted swamp ash body, private stock curly flame maple top with sage dragon's breathe finish. Roasted flamed maple neck and fretboard. 10 inch radius with the pattern thin neck carve and a hip shot hardtail.

    I wish there was an E-II Horizon with Evertune that's not in a matte finish... maybe that Andromeda finish.

    Although the MH-1000 ET in Snow White comes really close!

    A baritone JP7. 27 or 28 inch scale. I know petrucci had some baritone 6's a while back, but I honestly don't think he'd ever do a baritone 7. Not with an 8 string on the horizon at least.

    Ultra neck, fixed bridge Ibanez RG Prestige with stainless steel frets, locking tuners, 22 frets, H-S pickup config.
    Possibly, snow white, FB could be either ebony or maple, no issues for me.
    Flamed maple neck and reverse (matching) HS as a bonus.

    Same spec would work as well for and ESP M-II, but i find the RG body to be more comfy (especially the arm rest)

    I been thinking of doing it with my Affinity Jazzmaster. Just need an extra wide neck, change the bridge and have a new pick guard and nut cut.

    A Lo-Pro equipped Iceman 7. I don't care about the colour or pu combo, just give me that.

    Cycfi hardware is the dealbreaker here - Infinity still isn't available. If that wasn't a factor I would've gotten myself a custom or at least one of those Agile headless guitars and called it a day a long time ago.
