This build is going to be weird, really weird... Situation: I play guitar (& C6 lap steel) in a rockabilly / honkytonk-country band; used to switch a lot between my Tele and a Danelectro baritone (in addition to the 8-string console steel), until I got fed up with having to carry and swap so many instruments - so I tried to combine at least 2 of them - the Tele & the bari - in one: voilà, 7-string guitar. The problem is: it is really hard to find a 7-string guitar that both looks and sounds right in a rockabilly band, as most of them are geared towards metal playing... I currently have a Chapman ML7T - a 26.5" Tele-ish 7-string, that sounds quite decent after I swapped pickups, but is a bit hard to play - not only because of the longer scale, but also because of the 24 frets, which moves the whole neck too far to the left, and makes it neck-dive; feels like playing a Firebird; plus, I hate the look of the reversed headstock... I also have an old Peavey Predator ST-7, 25.5" scale, swapped the pickups for Bareknuckle P90s; easier to play, but I find the neck too thin and narrow, and hate the looks (kinda like a Strat crossed with one of those EVH Wolfgang guitars). And both of those 7-strings are hardtail guitars - and I LOVE to use a Bigsby when playing rockabilly, have one on almost all my Teles. So, what to do?
