Post Here comes the seven stringer from EKG (updated DEC 29)
Dude...this man can MAKE A FUCKIN' GUITAR. I'd like to see Ibanez make one this nice. Not that they can't, I just wish they would!

Here's some progress photos. If you'd like to see all the shots Eddie's sent me so far, head here: http://www.chaddyer.com/seven/gallery/index.html

Here's the slab of African mahogany.

Body sliced out.

Neck and frets

Body with binding added and creme/gold DiMarzio's laid in the body.

It's comin' right along great!

No paint, brotha. It's African mahogany. 4 coats of tung oil is all it needs.

Right on...yeah, it's awesome. I'm going to do some ultra high-res photos of it when I get it and I'll post 'em as well as for use on Eddie's new site.

Thanks to all...

The headstock matches perfectly. I used the same block of wood to create the veneer and then I put the creme binding on it, as well. It will indeed be a hardtail.

Sometimes it's hard to let a guitar go after I make one, and I think this one is going to be the hardest.

Also, this is built according to Chad's request. This is entirely his brainchild. I'm just trying to make it real.....then I want to hear some kick ass tunes :wink:
