N(-ish)GD - custom 7 string

Post by IkarusOnFire » Tue Jul 23, 2013 11:58 am

I've had this for some time, but I figured I'd share this one with you here.

It's a 7 string built by danish luthier, Jens Hvidbjerg - JEH guitars.

Specs are as follows:
- body: ancient kauri (~30-50.000 years old!)
- top: figured spalted bubinga
- neck: wenge w/ ancient kauri skunk stripe
- fretboard: macassar ebony
- frets: gold evo jumbos
- OFR 7 gold
- Hipshot locking tuners
- scalloped 15-24th fret
- Bare knuckle Black Dogs calibrated set

The top is radius, as well as the back - it's about 4.5kgs, and plays like butter. The sounds is slightly brigher than a classic gibson LP style guitar - with a bit more attack.

And pics!

That is a really cool guitar. Very unique. Can I ask you something? I see the neck is scalloped near the highest part of the neck.. I never had or tried a scalloped neck. Why is only part of the neck like that and not the whole thing? What's it feel like?
