Anyone know who could make me a 7 string body and neck like this?

Hey folks! New member here, but longtime lurker... Cool place...

This is exactly what I'm looking for (except the paint job and wood choices probably):





7 string neck and body routed for recessed floyd and EMG 707s. I want to chose the woods (probably bassword body with AAAA flame maple top and highly figured birdseye maple neck and fretboard) and finish and build myself. I am not interested in the swirl paint at all just to be clear...

Somebody's gotta know someone who'll make me a neck and body like these. Any ideas appreciated!

I have already tried these guys and either they are not taking new orders or won't do it:

Warmoth
usacustomguitars
EKG Guitars
LGM Guitars
Christopher Woods

Thanks!

Steve

Nevborn is never going to make a UV, you can try Shamray (because they'll do just about anything) but I think you might want to buy an RG7 and get a luthier to do some serious modding on it.

Chris Woods isn't taking orders right now but if you have a few weeks to wait until he gets caught up I'm sure he can build it. My custom he's building has made it up to second in line now so it shouldn't be too much longer.

Re: Anyone know who could make me a 7 string body and neck like this?

so pretty much you want an RG7620 routed for EMG's with a flame maple top and a UV neck? i'm doing my RG7421 up with flame maple top, and emg's, but no UV neck, i used the stock neck and gave it an ebony fingerboard... stock neck feels just like my UV's neck did anyways... might be worth trying to find a UV neck and a RG7620 body, or just get an RG7620 and have it stripped down and put a flame top on it and route it for EMG's... if you want a custom made body, it baffles me why you would want basswood... its not really that good of a tone wood...

Thanks for the info - Yeah, I talked to Chris, however, I had already ordered from Monster Guitar Shop. The guy at Monster Guitar Shop was very prompt in answering all my emails and Chris emailed me back a day or two later, after I'd ordered. Chris seems to do some great work, so I wish he had gotten back to me sooner.. Anybody got any experience with Monster Guitar Shop:

The pictures of the work look good, however, I've heard some grumbling about quality issues... Anyway... I was told 4-6 weeks to get the neck and body and that he had some great flame maple for the top...

Thanks. Call me crazy, but I like the way basswood bodies with maple tops sound...

That's John Suhr's "Holy Grail of tone."
