7 String Jtv

Recommended Posts

Was considering the idea of a 7 string JTV transplant ast night and realized something -

 

We all know there is currently no way to do the modeling over 7 strings, BUT why would I want to?

 

I don't need a 7 string simulated acoustic 12 string (14 string?), or a 7 string banjo, or a 7 string Strat, or a 7 string 59 Les Paul etc. All of those instruments are fine and accurate to the original as 6 strings (5 strings for the banjo).

 

The only time I ever need a 7 or 8 string is when i am doing heavy or Djenty bits and even if I could make the JTV modeling work on 7 or 8 strings it will mostly sound like poo anyway due to the JTV's inherent palm mute issues.

 

So my idea is to transplant my JTV 89 electronics into a nice 7 or 8 string Ibanez or similar, using a 7 or 8 string bridge with 6 Graphtech piezo saddles connected to the modeling inputs and the guitars magnetic pickups running through the JTV mag input.

 

This will give me the ultimate Djent-Djent-Djent on the heavy strings and with the touch of a footswitch the standard JTV modeling on the 1-6 strings and muted 7th and 8th string.

 

Line 6 or Toasterdude, feel free to take this idea and run with it  :)  I might do it and I might not, depends on how I feel about things when I get around to pursuing the idea.

Nice idea!
You might want to check this topic I started, just in case you need to know exactly what the pickup selector does.

Looks like cool idea but I have enough problems with 6. Strings!
