New mockups! Infinity 7's for your eyeballs!

Hot on the heels of my high-res redux of the ∞8 lineup, I have heeded the requests of many here, and in a few other forums, to expand the Infinity bodyshape (back) to the much loved seven-string format. So, here you are, four ∞7 mockups in an array of varied finishes dredged from the mire of my brain.

A lot of people were asking for a trans-white model in seven string and/or with and ebony board, so let it be written (er... illustrated)! I opted for a regular (non-figured) maple top here as a change from the quilt on the ∞8 model. Also, I had to do a maple fingerboard model for all those deprived by Ibanez's secret hatred of maple fingerboards... and I basically went all-natural with the motif, ditching the maple top & headstock veneer to expose the neck-through stripes, and finishing the understated nature of the theme with vintage silver hardware. The other two designs are a deep violet over quilt with some contrasting Vai/Gilbert-flamboyant chrome orange appointments (I know, some will hate it), and a variation on the RG-Metal scheme applied to an ∞7, except darker and thoroughly clear coated. Me likes this one very much.

All the illustrations get passive pickups as they're what most buyers would opt for and I did the first two models as 27.0" baritone scaled, while the latter two are a conventional 25.5" just to mix things up a bit. Anywho, oogle some more of my fantasyland guitars and let me know what you all think!

No fan of the orange elements of the first design, but the natural maple one is hot!

It's a great shape and I would totally buy one but it'd be confusing for Ibanez because they already have the RGA body shape and it looks like an RGA but with more equal length horns...

The natural maple looks great, though I would rather have creme colored pickups. Very nice work!

Those are killer! Are you the guy who originially came up with the infinity? If so, you should be working for ibanez!

Christ, that's awesome! I'll take a 27" scale fixed-bridge version of the natural one, please

Great job!

I was thinking exactly the same thing. The natural one rocks. Get some creme pickups or zebra's in there.
