Finally after 4 months, and a lot of difficulty, the strings are on. Definitely a learning experience for me. The next one should go a bit smoother I hope.

Like the photos. Great looking guitar! With the 7 string design did you make the pickups to suit?

Thanks! The pickups are bare knuckle's, they offer most of their models in 7 and 8 string. Had to make the pick guard and mounting ring for the humbucker though, couldn't find anything to fit.

Looks superb, love the through neck. What woods did you use? Camphor Laurel?
