7 STRING "CORT"S

HI!
I was wondering in buying another 7 guitar (now I assumed my Schecter blackjack C7 7 string was the worst guitar I,ve ever have).
Do you think that the Cort X7 guitar is any good, and I read something about a Cort VIVA 7 that it was pretty "good" too. I know they donīt produce them any more, but I know a seller, I I want to know if is taht any good, or I must go for an ibanez.
This guitars (The Cort Viva 7) would cost something betwwen 300 and 400 €, so you think its a big deal. Or I must go (like i said before) for an Ibanez????


Thank you

P.D. I only want this two chances.

All the corts I've played were "ok" at the very best. You're better off just looking around for an ibanez 7620 or 7621.

For 300 - 400 euros I'd say pass on it (I assume it's not a neck-through). I've got a Cort X-2 which is a good low-end guitar after replacing the pickups, but I've seen X2's go for $125 on ebay. If its the same pickups as the X2, they'll need to be replaced immediately, so I say for 300 - 400 + new pickups cost it's not worth it.

You cant really go wrong with an Ibanez 7-string, except for the GIO or AX series.

Schecter's are ok. Out of all the 7-strings I've played, Ibanez and BC Rich sounded the best overall.

The scjecter had a very wide and fat neck, and the strings where very tight.

So you donīt think this guitar would be good:

It looks quite good. Is this better, or the 7321???


Thank you

Havent played one,but they seem like a cheap POS.Play a few guitars,and see if your schecter is really that bad.No way the washburn would compare to your schecter.
