Don't think 7-string volume is ever going to be high enough to get any more stock options that what you see today...
Wyliee said:It really needs to be a full sized line drawing. Photos can be rescaled depending on your specific printer and software, which can lead to mismatches in size. A full size drawing can be used for the actual template. Photos don't work quite as well for a physical template.
If you're adamant on using photos, you'll need to accept the possibility of some variation on the final headstock and it would be non-returnable except for warranty issues. Neck shop staff will need flexibility on any custom headstock to make sure it fits the nut width and tuner reams.
The paddleheads make any straight seven headstock possible, except a banana or a reverse. I know that Gregg has said here that the sevens are consistently Warmoth's lowest sellers, they won't discontinue them (because they're already programmed) but they're not going to go wacky trying to score more business either. The serial number on the flat 7 body I just bought was "14".
There's a number of builders/tweakers on the seven string forum who would probably buy a Warmoth if they made a neck length longer than 25" but shorter than their baritone 28.625", but I don't think Warmoth has a full-time designer/CNC programmer just to cater to requests. Maybe if the public clamors more, louder, harder.... :guitaristgif:
