I was thinking of gettign a job this summer, so i could pay for some sweet guitar things, and then decided i want to make a 7-string shredder guitar. I ws thinking of buying an ibanez 7-string, but it would be cool to "make" my own guitar. so, do you guys know where i can get a 7-string guitar kit (ibanez jem body style/24 frets)? i'd like to get that 7-string neck thru body neck on carvin, which leaves me wondereing where i could get a 7 string ibanez body like steve vai's 777 ('cept maybe one that has rear loaded controls)

so anyway, i'm going to do a sweet swirl design with the main color a black, and somereally bright pink, green, yellow and orange swirls. i'll possibly mix in some sparkles with the balck, like steve's DNA jem...


anyway, thanks

^ If you want to pay shit loads for new CNC templates, extra wood, time spent designing, time spent building.

Carvin makes a 7 string neck-thru that you can just glue your own wood to, cut the shape, route it out, and all that stuff.

So if you wanted, you could just buy a body from Warmoth, cut out a section from the middle and then glue that to the neck-thru.

oh excellent thats what i was thinking of doing. isounds like a lot of work, but its exactly what I want to do, so i'll figure out something. what do you guys think of the swirl idea? too complicated, or is it worth a try? i just need to be ready to use a bunch of paint...

...But I'd have to get a bolt on neck. could i just order the carvin neck and remove the extra wood, or would that be a waste? becasue in that case i coudl just find another 7-string neck elsewhere, like e-bay, but it's just not as reiable

I personally would buy the carvin neck, then remove the wood from the center of the body and place the neck where it goes inbetween.
