No pics, sorry.

Im working on a 7 string build, and here are the specs.

Soft Maple Body
Mahogony Neck
Bloodwood fretboard

I chose mahogony as a neck material to balance out the harshness of the maple, and the pups I've chosen should balance it even more.

25.5" Scale
24 or 27 Frets. Haven't decided.

John Petrucci's Liquifire Neck and X2N Bridge pups. X2N may be swapped for 7 string D-Activators.

Locking tuners and Locking nut.
7 String Licensed Floyd rose Bridge.

Costs: $290 Minimum, $452 Maximum, $368 Estimated.

Opinions on these specs? It should resolve well IMO.

Body has been bandsawed out. Neck has been shaped and carved. Neck is almost ready to be finished. Fretboard has yet to be made, and material needs to be purchased.

I'm sorry if I missed something, but I see no questions in there
Regardless, sounds like it'll be a nice build.

Sorry, the question was about the X2N pup. I could use some other suggestions instead of it. I merely put that because I had no real Idea of what else I would like.
Tightness and high output for a bridge pup are needed.

Also, 1/4th inch is enough for a Fretboard, correct? I can find 5'x5"x1/4" pieces of Bloodwood for like $3. Hell, eBay has great deals on Bloodwood.

^1/4" is good for the fretboard. Perfect size.

so.. are there just no pics currently?, or do you mean there arent going to be pics.. ever..

There will probably be a few finished pictures, or if I mess up Ill probably get a pic of it.

And sorry, I meant 1/8th inch of Bloodwood, no 1/4th.
1/8th inch scroll saw pieces.
