Looks like a beefy body. Did you make the neck yourself? Kinda looks like the Jackson 4+3 headstock
Fuck yeah dive-only Floyd.
Will you be doing a run of these the Friday after Thanksgiving?
It's actually the same size as a Jackson Dinky, so pretty small. Both the body and the neck are Musikraft - the bodies (I have two) were prototypes of this shape and needed a considerable amount of work. The headstock is the Jamerson 4+3 they offer on their 7 string necks.
:urge to stick with Soloists rising:
Looks good. Got a plan on the finish?
Huh, I honestly had no idea Musikraft did 7-strings. Did the neck need any work? Or just finishing?
Nice! I have a Musikraft parts 7 as well. I dont have the skills to have put it together, but the guy who did had to do a lot of extra work as well to get things to fit together correctly and actually intonate.
Yours is looking absolutely killer.
Obviously I haven't checked intonation yet - next week I'll be putting it together and doing some test runs - but the neck dropped right in the pocket with no issues and looks like it measures right, so,
Hopefully it works out! Musikraft screwed something up with my body. The luthier had to move the neck pocket back and the bridge mounting forward to get it to work. I complained and Musikraft just shrugged.
That does seem to be their MO.
Oop, the neck pocket and the bridge needed to be moved back, if I'm remembering right. And they drilled the Floyd stud super close to the cavity, so it would have blown out anyway. Just a mess.
The neck is very very nice, though.
So, some updates:

I added the Floyd nut and tuners.

I drilled all the wiring holes without punching through anything! I can't believe it.

I also put the Sophia stabilized block on the Floyd.
Assembly should be happening soon, like tonight/tomorrow, and we'll see how it plays.
