    Oh thanks for that! Great resource indeed. I'm not scared to modify a guitar - even an expensive one - but I might just leave this one alone. mainly because there's no need, but also due to rarity of these. However I'm mightily impressed by the playability of these, and the tones I get out of the Double Edge, so I'm definitely seeing myself getting more of piezo equipped Ibbies :)

    Just sharing my Legator Ghost loaded with Bare Knuckle Nailbombs. It has flaws but I'm happy with the playability and tone that I am getting from it. :)

    I bought one of these in summer 2000 and made a huge mistake selling it in 2008. Found a turd I could polish into gold last November. Super happy with the Hipshot Open Locking Tuners!

    Hey everybody!

    This is my first post. A few years ago a video of Hiromi's sonicBLOOM turned up in my facebook feed, and I was hooked—especially on the guitar stylings of David Fiuczynski, who plays a double-neck guitar that has one fretless and one seven-string. The low string on the seven has its own saddle and is not affected by the tremolo system. I got super into Screaming Headless Torsos after that and started planning to build my own seven string.

    Before building my seven, however, I was inspired to embrace the tremolo, as I never wanted that kind of sound before; I came up on classic rock and was largely a jamband guy, but I have since expanded my horizons by a lot, and I almost can't stand the jamband thing anymore. So, I installed a Stetsbar on my SG and played that for a while, but I was itching to get my hands on a seven string, and it had to have a tremolo. The problem was, I couldn't find an instrument in my price range that appealed to me aesthetically—everything just seemed to be geared toward metal players, which, though I like metal just fine (currently totally into Intronaut), I didn't want the appearance of my guitar to mislead people. So, I decided to get creative, and I bought an old DeArmond S67, which is an SG ripoff with seven strings and a stoptail/bridge. I stripped the paint and sanding sealer off the body and neck and re-stained everything red, then clear coated over it all. I had hipshot locking tuners put on, a Graphtech nut, a Kahler tremolo system, all new electronics with a true coil tap on the neck pickup and a series/parallel configuration on the bridge pickup, which are Seymour Duncan Jazz and Custom pickups respectively. I even ordered brand new knobs, and, as a kind of joke since I've unintentionally owned several guitars that have had moon inlay, I had a pick guard and truss rod cover made by Dave at Frets on the Net with the name of the Greek goddess of the moon in English and Greek (again, respectively). I even printed an image of an ancient Greek etching of said goddess onto some gelatin paper and put that on the headstock before lacquering.

    So, whattaya think? I have some pictures here for ya to take a look. I am having some trouble with the strings getting hung up in the nut because of the tremolo, I think because of the angle to the tuners and the pitch of the headstock. I use Big Bends Nut Sauce, and I even started using coated strings, but the problem remains. I'm thinking of getting a different neck with a straight (or straighter) route to the tuners, but I have only found one place that would make what I need (after admittedly little research), and there is a lot of options that I don't really understand since I'm not a luthier. I also super want that Jericho Fusion 7 with tremolo that they're selling for 1k, but I gotta save some dough.

    Anyway, I'm interested to hear your responses! Cheers, mates!

    I don't know if it still is a thing with the new format, but imgur doesn't allow for external linking anymore, so you'll need to do it from some other platform.

    Also: I've looked up the model and the specs on it are amazing for the price. Are they any decent?

    Edit: oh now they work :scratch:

    It has some beauty issues here and there, like the lacquer not ending in a smooth line along the fretboard, but it has a big beefy neck, which I love in my guitars! plays very good, just need to get used to the feel of a 7, I foresee many a nights honing my skills.:coffee:


    I haven't seen a Leftie with an inverted headstock before, looks right and wrong at the same time!:frantic:
    That Flame maple guitar is gorgeous, is it a Mayones?

    Yep, Mayones Setius 7.

    And I confuse myself sometimes when I look at the strat with the reversed headstock, since its a right-handed neck so the logo is upside down.

    How do you like your shoggie? I'm considering making another financially irresponsible decision soon.
