Finally finished my custom 7!!PICS!!

Well, it's been a long process, but I now officially own a 7 string guitar!! It's a bad horsie replica ala 7 string, specifiacally this bad horsie (http://vai.com/Machines/guitarpages/guitar017.html) with a few changes to comp for my leftyness of course Well, here it is folks !







The neck is a UV7PWH neck that i bought off of e-bay. Pickups are Blaze all through. The body was made by www.monsterguitarshop.com The whammy bar is a lefty from my rg1570l, cause when I ordered a bar from Rich I forgot to ask if he had any lefty ones! So my rg now has a righty bar on it The nut is a lefty 7 locking nut....hard as hell to hunt down, but I found it, it doesn't match the power coated LoPro Edge 7, but it isn't too noticeable.

Anyway, I put a hell of alot of work into getting this baby up and runnin, and I still need to intonate it, but I came to show everyone first!

Enjoy!

Looks Excellent... i had to reverse the image to make it a righty guitar for me to really see it correctly, hehe. Funniest part about it is i am lefty, but learned righty!

Thanks, I gotta say though, it is hard as hell adjusting to a standard neck joint. Haha oh well, she'll come around

Looks like you havent intonated the tremolo system yet, or is that just me? they look backwords, otherwise great guitar! I like it very clean and original and left to boot, hell i would play it strung for a righty just for the old jimmy feel

Good eye. The picture was taken a couple hours ago and it wasn't intonated. I just finished intonating it now so its all good
