That's not Letchford's. It's an 8 string for Danny Thrasher who was showing it to Letchford on his FB page. Chris has two 7 strings in process, one trans purple and one trans green.
I spoke with Chris this afternoon and Travis (STS' other guitarist) wants a 7 as well.
fewls, the neck pocket area is left stout to support a routing fixture for the neck pocket.
Being that is a drop top, the body shape is profiled prior to gluing the top on and sticking it into a vacuum bag. Once the neck pocket is routed, the cutaways will be final profiled.
