I'm just wondering, has anybody out there attempted to build a 7-string? I doubt I'll be taking on such a project anytime soon, but out of curiosity, I figured I'd ask.

I imagine someone has, can't see how it'd be much different from building a standard guitar. Just one more string spot.

No one has ever attempted to build a seven string.


By the way, what's a seven string?

Well, they can take comfort in knowing that there's an asshole out there somewhere that's very pleased with himself.

Do you have a specific question on the subject?

The considerations that go in to building a 7 string are exactly the same as that of a 6 string.

someone here started to build a seven string like two years ago and never finished it. His name is James. Good guy.

He said he is probably not taking on a project, so he wont be using any.

This thread is pointless. Use the search bar. Let it die.

Thats still the same consideration that needs to into building a 6 string. There are blues players out there that are exerting far more pressure on their 6 string necks than I am on my 7 string neck
