Custom 7 string

Black Walnut is quickly becoming one of my favorite tone
woods. This 7 string is another good example of custom. It
sounds every bit as good as it looks. It features a
multi-scale 34"- 32 1/2" scale length and a "compound"
string spacing that narrows as it goes to the higher strings.
The center book-matched Cocobolo top has a matching
head plate as well as a matching large pickup cover/ ramp
and knobs. The neck is a nine piece laminate of Black
Walnut, Tiger Maple and Wenge. The Black Walnut body is
chambered and features a Tiger Maple accent layer
between the top and back which is repeated on the
headplate, pickup cover and knobs. Two dual coil Simonetti
passive Noedymium humbuckers are paired with bridge
mounted Piezo pickups are controlled via the passive
controls: Stacked volume/ magnetic pickup blend/ staked
tone with a Pure-tone input jack. Gold Hipshot Ultralight
tuners sport a drop tuner on the low E string. Brass nut and
bridge saddles compliment the custom bridge tail design
and gold hardware. Screwless control and truss rod covers
are a new thing being featured on all Simonetti Basses. A
hand rubbed proprietary oil blend finish allows the player to
truly become one with this special blend of woods.
