I don't find it neccessary to quote all of you, so...

I'm convinced that the K7 is probably a very good guitar, but it has too many negatives to even consider it a possibility.

Atif, I am quite aware you can put any p/u's into any guitar. Hell, I could put EMG in my old Squier if I wished to, but the fact of the matter is that Dimarzio and Ibanez were made for eachother. Without Dimarzio, Ibanez guitars would not sound as good (don't debate this, Atif, its souly based on what I've read, and my guitar teacher).

The S series play like shit. And for once, I can actually say that and back it up with proof. I played one of the higher end S series axes, and the fretboard was uncomfortable, had horrible sound playing through all three of the amps I tried out, and not to mention, its overall design is uncomfortable.

I'll look through the LTD site, tranny. I had been looking at one before I got my Ibanez a year and a half ago.

****
Maybe if not a 7 string, then maybe a baritone... MHB 400?

eh. you think the S was uncomfortable? man I thought it was more comfortable then my RG!

I don't think they're horrible, if you get one with the wizzard II neck and some decent pickups, its basically the same as an RG only the S has less sustain (makes sense, it has a flimsy body) I don't know which high end S you played, but it sounds like one that was either badly setup or just crap in general, all the S's I've played where pretty decent, though I only played prestiges and one limited edtion blueburst prestige.

As for DiMarzio and Ibanez, yes they go way back, but there where days that Ibanez had seymour duncans in their guitars too... yes, off-factory!
DiMarzio and Ibanez are like synonims (eh don't know the spelling), they go together like chips and beer.
Its like Les Pauls and EMG's, they're the guitars I actually like EMG's in, same goes with ESP Vipers. and thats it. they just have the right feel for them and a ton of sustain, nothing fancy but pure brutal tone.

For a 7 string I'de try either an RG7 or a rare S7, but hey, its whatever you like, maybe something used could be the answer. I'm not fond of baritone guitars, but the Viper baritone I played wasn't bad at all!

The one I posted in your thread is fucking beautiful. Great S series.

I tried a low end one, I think. Can't remember.

I have a Schecter A-7 which is okay. Really cheap too (250ish). I'd suggest getting a Jackson though. I dunno the model, but I played a REALLY nice one at a Daddy's Junky Music. Price was about 400 if I remember.

Out of the ones I've played and tried, the ESP LTD H-207 was by far the best. It had such an angry growl to it, and didn't have any mud to it whatsoever like most 7's. It really does sound like a 6 string, plus it has a very flat neck so it's fast. I dunno if anybody has seen these custom guitars, but go to www.ricojrguitars.com and check those out. Expensive, but pretty sweet to look at.

I dont like 7 strings but from the ones ive played (a Jackson DX7 and an Ibanez RG7321) i would suggest the Ibanez the necks much slicker and easier to play if ur used to 6 strings like me, and the action isnt a mile off the fretboard.

Carvin makes great stuff, but if you get a 7 string from them and it has a floyd make sure you get a locking nut... they like to put graphite nuts on some models.. and graphit nuts just dont cut it.

Wait ... they prefer to combine a Floyd Rose tremelo bridge, and an ordinary, non-locking graphite nut, as opposed to a locking one?



I'm not the sort who prefers Floyd's, but still ...

They seem to believe that a graphite nut and locking tuners will keep ther guitar in tune.. ifact it wont and it will only put extra strain on the headstock.
