  • OT: Need a 7 string

    I'm in the market for a 7-string, and I can't for the life of me decide on a guitar.

    So far I've come up with
    Ibanez RG1527 - Solid guitar, I've always like RGs
    Carvin 727 - whatever options I want, although I've never played one everyone says they're nice
    Schecter Hellraiser 7 - a bit chunky for me, but sounds great

    How do I decide?!

          I bought an Ibanez RG7321 not so long ago becuase i wanted to see if i could adapt to a 7string. As it happens, i love playing on a 7string and all the extra options it gives, so i put in a slime green DiMarzio Evo 7 to fit the colour scheme and it screams, shame i dont have a digital camera of my own becuase it looks awsome with the green pickup in it



          It plays really well for a cheapie, i spend just as much time on it as my SL-1 really. A good fast neck and a fixed bridge, so theres nothing to go wrong.

                    That's a good option. Find a nice 2nd hand RG7620 and slap some nice pickups in it.

                          If you like active PU's, I would suggest an ESP/LTD SC 607.
                          One of the best 7 strings i've ever owned/played.

                            I think the Ibanez 7420 and 7321 play pretty much the same. The Schecter sounds awesome with its active pickups. I got mine with an 81-7/707 Combo rather than the dual 707's. Its so metal. Cheers Lucius

                              Ibanez makes great 7s. I have an S and an RG (with FRT), they RULE. I do have an ESP M series (with FRT) and a Rondo (with FRT).

                              Honestly, for the $ spend I would say that the Rondo is an AWESOME buy. Mine has a 27" scale, DiMarzio Blaze humbuckers and no inlay ebony fretboard. For $410 it was a GREAT investment.

                              That said I will get a Carvin 7 too. Got it all spec-ed out and everything, just need to pay off my Korg 32 track recorder (0% for a year) and I'm on that Carvin. I did say that before though!
