New Seven String on the way
This is my second seven string. The first one was a Spruce top with California native Black Acacia back and sides. This second one is Indian Rosewood with a Cedar top. I'm getting excited to see how they each sound. This one will be strung up in the next week after I put on the binding make the fingerbaord and glue on the bridge.
The back is on now and the sides are being scraped and sanded to get ready for the binding. The top has a light coat of shellac to protect while I do the binding process. I think it;s looking good and when I thump on it I'm getting all the main air tones and response I'm listening for. I think the guy I'm building this one for is going to be very happy.
