#5 and #6 are being finished at this time. They have received a few coats of oil and a round of wet-sanding with oil and are now drying before fretwork and final assembly. #5 had an accident (or two actually) with heads of screws that broke inside the wood! Only explanation is that it was a bad batch of screws. The now enlarged holes have been plugged with mahogany plugs.
#5 will have Lundgren M7 pickups and #6 will have Lace Aluma 90 pickups (which are in fact wide enough for a 7-string). Weights are 1890 grams for #5 and 2130 grams for #6 without hardware. I expect them to weigh pretty much the same after the pickups are mounted, since the conventional pickups are so much heavier.
