I plan to start this bass early next year and have it done maybe by summer '07 (depending on if I get more custom orders or not). I still have to work out the details but so far I plan to use hipshot individual bridge saddles, ultralites, audere pre, a single custom 7 string nordstrand DC ...other specs to will be detailed as they are finalized. It's 36" on the bass side and 33" on the treble side and the parallel fret is the 7th from the nut. It'll have 28 frets. Zero fret, of course. Here's the design, it's a slightly modified version of my D shape: I contacted Novax a couple of days ago about licensing the fanned fret. Mary B told me that their patent expired back in august, so I guess it's every man for himself now.
