X7 Electric Orange
We have built a number of guitars for Jean-Marc and the one thing they all have in common is that they are orange. Yes, Jean-Marc has a passion for orange. For this one he was wanting an electric guitar and as we didn’t have a production electric he asked us to base it on our X7 travel guitar. We took a standard X7 and remoulded the body to reduce the depth to 2″. It still retained the same acoustic soundboard so still offered a reasonable acoustic tone. We added a TV Jones Humbucker to the bridge with a volume and tone control to give it a great cross over acoustic electric tone. We were amazed at the power from this little instrument despite the hollow acoustic construction. The paint finish is a custom orange marble mixed with mini fireball flake to give a fantastic deep orange shimmer. Definitely the most unique X7 custom we have built.
