Cool addition, Congrats, enjoy delving into the low frequencies...
All Benedetto archtop jazz guitars along with many, many other fine jazz luthiers use a 25 in scale. It happens to be perfect for a 7-string but most use 12s to 70s. It would, however, work on longer scale fretboards also.
Wow, those are much bigger than what I have on there now, which measured 10 to 62. I have a new set that are 10 to 64 (using first 7 out of an 8 pack), but sounds like I need to go bigger still. Maybe I could lose the high string and use the 13 to 74 strings.
As a reformed jazz player, I can tell you that B is just as common as A on the low string. The bottom two strings become 5th/root instead of root/ 5th. Down for the 5th is one of the most common sounds in jazz.
