ok i have put quite alot of thought into this idea, i would really like to see a guitar like this, a Fender Stratocaster with 7-strings a Foyd Rose double locking tremolo, 2 tone, 2 volume knobs, a pickup switch(not selector), push/pull coil tapping for pickups, and one of those new on-board tuners on the knobs. anymore things that i might have forgotton that you would like to add just please post it.


Please no flaming or bashing my idea.
It is mearly an idea

I think Fender did actually make a Seven String Strat, but it was dis-continued or it was a limited edition, I remember seeing it on Youtube.

when it comes to seven string you want a decent scale length, so having a strat design as a base is quite difficult
if youre going to make EVERYTHING, then it shouldnt be a problem

25.5" works alright for 7 strings as long as you don't try to play in drop G or something... hell, Carvin's 7-strings are 25.5" scale.
TS: Sounds sexy as hell. Build it!

Fender made 7 string strats in about 2000 or 2001 I believe. They were the lower end ones and may have been Squier. I remember a GC blowing them out really cheap.

I can not play like Sal Salvador so I didn't bother to buy one.

I've seen a 7-String strat before, but if you're gonna want a Floyd Rose and all that other stuff, why get it on a strat?
#7
I've seen used Squier 7-strings on ebay a hundred times. they're really, really cheap.

Thinking of buying one...

they would charge you like $20,000+ to make that guitar. im assuming your just joking with this idea but if your not, there are better things to spend that kind of money on lol

Where's your sources? I know custom shops from big companies are expensive, but over 20 grand is a huge exaggeration.

TC, try www.ranguitars.com . It won't be a "fender" but it will be top of the line, and it will probably be around $4-$5k.

^ Rans prices increased and from what I'm hearing, there quality has gone down a little. Since more people are finding out about Ran and there making so much these days, wait time has also increased. If you live in the US, you'll wined up paying a pretty big chunk having that guitar built. JMO.

jeez, a custom doesn't cost 15 grand. more like...3 grand.
