I want a custom... c",)

I want to start a project to get someone build me a perfect custom 7...
I'm not sure about the shape yet, lookin into that...
Thinking of having a couple of Duncans in it, 59 and JB, but I'm not sure if I should try something new...any recommendations?
What I really need help with is the wood. I don't know too much about the difference in the types of wood...heh...
I own an Ibanez AX 7221, an Ibanez RG 7421xl, and a Brian Moore i9.7, I want something completely different from those models...
If anyone can be bothered please give me ideas

Also I was wondering, I've seen alot of people modifying pics of guitars and stuff...what progs r you using to do that? It's awesome...

An answer (to most of) your questions about building your own seven string can be found here:

(For those who are interested: the site will be updated in the near future with some new photo's and a section about the Lo Pro edge for 7 string.)

Since it's your first I would suggest not to go to complicated in the body design. Start by making something straightforward to learn the basics. Keep it simple. (your first anyway)
It's more to it than just a spectacular design. You also have to play 'that thing' when it's finished. read: "playability". There are many people who have tried to produce revolutionary guitars in the past, and most of these have quickly fallen by the wayside..
The attitude of making a revolutionary design is fine if you have some experiende already, but it can lead to problems if you just jump in that deep end.

As for wood, each piece of wood is unique. The sonic properties of wood vary dramatically between species, weight and density. Choose the appearance/species that best suits your personal taste.
For a description of tone-woods: check Warmoth.com

My advice to you: Inform yourself about guitarmaking. Buy books, search the internet and try to know what you're about to tackle. Only then you will succeed.

I wish you all the best with your upcoming project

Hmm....if you want different than those, maybe do a S style body, or something really unusual.

Yea I was thinkin of an S style, but I got an idea, I really like the shape of meshuggahs nevborns so I emailed them and asked if they could do a custom for me.
