    nice body style. not much for the pickup covers, though, a bit too light coloured. unless they match the body i don't really like pickup covers, though.

    Thanks John,

    Good point about the covers. They are a little lighter, but not as drastically different as they look in the picture. The computer always seems to make things look redder.

    Here are the specs for this one:
    Semi-hollow 2" thick basswood body with birdseye top and flamed maple back. Neck of cherry and maple, purpleheart headstock with a birdseye facing. Aero type 2 pickups with an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp. Hipshot B style bridge and tuners.

    Thanks Adrian!

    Defeldus,
    Thanks for the comment. That's the first 7-string headstock I've made, and it was a challege to keep it small, yet make the "B" string post a little further from the nut. The bass balances really well, though it's a little heavier than some of my others. Still a lot lighter than the bass it replaced.

    The owner is a big Jimmy Haslip fan, and he gets all those super high notes that Jimmy plays on "Red Heat". I found the 7 a little confusing, but who knows, someday I might need one too!
