mate, these are sick!!!
whats the deal with the body shape?
I've been trying to make a template based on an inverted mosrite venture, but struggling incorporating 4 bolt neck due to the smaller cut out not being back enough to get to the highest frets
is this a copy of a schecter avenger or "something or other"?
would you be good enough to share a template or advise a learner?
The bodies are basically Mayones Regius outlines. I've attached an outline template for the 670mm 7 string. If you open it in Illustrator or Inkscape you should be able to edit it for different scales and numbers of strings. Watch out for the bridge pickup placement if you change the scale length from 670mm!
Nice one. Appreciated
Definitely can't afford a mayones. So a homebrew one it is

OMG! This must be the most beautiful Explorer I have ever seen. I absolutely love the color on this axe.
I started building a couple years ago, haven't posted much on SSO yet but I figured Id throw up some of the photos I have. Everything other than the swamp ash tele was finished last year at some point, I'm going to try to find good photos of 4/5 but Ive since stripped off the hardware for other builds.
#1, 2 and 3 (Tele, Walnut Strat then Burl)

I know this is an old post but very cool guitar, love your banana guitar too!!
Insane guitars here. New poster here. Thanks all of you for such inspiration and raising the bar so high that I gotta pull out every ounce of my design sauce just to even post here. Hopefully Pondman will retire soon.
I'm kindof doing what Pondman is doing - just for fun, not looking to sell yet, which gives such sweet freedom to enjoy building. The use of textured acrylic is a new one, not sure if it will be feasible, but the light refraction is worth trying.
The new "Burnt Chrome" PVD plated bridge now available for Floyd Rose Bridges inspired me to do all color-changing dichroic pigments, inlays, etc.
Holy cow, is that you, Stu?
Just for fun.. it's not big or clever or even 7 string haha!
Keep the pics coming

I dig that upper fret access
Finally found some time to finish my first 7 this weekend. Still in adjustment phase, as I've only been playing 6 strings up to now. With 3.1kg it came out quite light, so I can comfortably play 24/7...
Cavity is still open and showing the mess I call my electronics, still waiting for a material delivery.
- 1-piece Walnut / Black Walnut top / Walnut Burl bevel
- Oak/Maple/Oak neck / flamed Hornbeam fretboard
- Multiscale 7 / 665mm-645mm
- ABM single bridges / Hipshot open gear tuners
- Seymour Duncan Pegasus+Sentient / Blackouts Modular Preamp
Just wrapping up this build for myself now, still waiting on no load tone pots before I wire up the electronics, but I'm pretty damn happy otherwise!
that looks really awesome, great job
Feels good to finally post here again.
My third finished build.
24 SS frets
26" scale length
set neck construction
Black Cherry and Wenge body
single pickup (Seymour Duncan Nazgul)
bare bones, no controls - pup wired straight to the output jack
Hipshot hard tail bridge
weighs 7.35 lbs.
Build Thread Here
Nice! With a single PU, who needs controls anyway...
How does it sound with the PU so far removed from the bridge? Still got a good bite?
It's honestly not bad. About what you'd expect to hear from a middle mounted pickup. I don't spend a lot of time on the bridge pickup anyway when playing another guitar, so I was a little worried about having too much bridge sound and missing some of the chunkiness of the neck position, but this was a fair trade off.
