Expression Semi-hollow 7-String

The Expression semi-hollowbody series is designed to deliver the sweet, warm, round attack of a hollowbody instrument while retaining the sustain and feedback resistance of a solidbody. Additionally, the gracefully arched top, figured woods, and matching body and fretboard binding pay tribute to the classic hollowbody aesthetic, and the lighter weight is a bonus. The Expression semi-hollowbody series features optional piezo saddle transducers with a magnetic/piezo stereo preamp for an amazingly rich acoustic-electric sound.

The body is crafted of mahogany, with a fully chambered interior, and your choice of top wood: spruce, for a warm, smooth tone with a “woody” character, lacewood for a smooth tone with more “bounce”, highly figured walnut for a more pronounced attack with a big midrange, or highly figured maple for a snappier attack with strong highs.

  • Longscale, low “A” tuning, or shortscale, high “A” tuning
  • Vertical grain maple neck with 1 15/16" nut width.
  • Bound osage orange fretboard with green abalone dot inlay and 22 jumbo frets. Also available with ebony or rosewood fretboard and a wide variety of fret sizes to suit your playing style.
  • Proprietary Novax individual bridges with Graph Tech saddles.
  • Bartolini "soapbar" humbucking pickup with volume and tone. Also available with optional piezo bridge saddle transducers and piezo/magnetic stereo preamp.

Expression Solidbody 7-string

The Expression solidbody 7-string series is designed for the jazz artist who expects a big, clear, focused tone with accurate tuning and balanced string tension. Expression instruments are hand carved, each one unique, and ergonomically designed for playing comfort. Each guitar is the expression of the luthier's craft, enabling the player to have the finest instrument on which to perform.

The solidbody Expression 7-string is available in 2 different tunings, with the appropriate scale-length neck for each.

We offer the Standard tuned model, which has a low A added to the familiar 6-string tuning. The scale lengths we use for this instrument are the comfortable 25 inch scale length for a warm, jazzy treble and a 27 1/2 inch scale length for basses that are articulate and big, with balanced string tension.

Our High A model uses shorter scale lengths and adds a higher tuned A to the standard tuned 6 strings. We use a treble scale length of 23 inches for the high A and a bass scale length of 25 3/4 for a standard-tuned E.

Both models have a maple neck with your choice of ebony, purpleheart, or wenge fretboard , your choice of medium or jumbo frets, and pearl dot inlay.

Fretboard binding in curly maple is included with the optional laminated curly maple top / mahogany back body.

Bodies are handcarved, and available in mahogany, walnut, or swamp ash. A laminated curly maple top / mahogany back body is available for an additional $450.00, and includes matching wood fretboard binding and headstock overlay. Bodies are finished in natural satin.

2 Bartolini “soap-bar” style humbucking pickups, passive, with 3 way switch and volume and tone control.

The AX-7 is also available with a figured, bookmatched maple top which produces a brighter tone with more “edge”.

The basic electronics package includes a Bartolini “soapbar” passive neck pickup which is specially voiced for a warm, clear jazz tone.
