New JS 7

This is the second 7 string built for the same customer who had the first JS 7 built. He took his first guitar on tour and liked it so much that he put money down to have me build her a sister. I used the same basic idea but he wanted Swamp Ash for the body and he liked purple, so we went with Purpleheart for the peghead veneers and scratch plate. That is the natural color of the wood. No dyes were used. The neck is quartersawn Hard Maple with a very nice piece of Maccassar Ebony for the fret board. She carries 24 frets and is a 25.5 inch scale length. One modification he wanted to try was the switchable EMG 707 pickup. It can be a single coil of a humbucker with the flip of the mini-switch (note that the mini switch was not installed when the photos were taken thus the small hole by the knob) . A very stable guitar with excellent playability.
