you dont need a 7 string to get a heavy sound. Put a set of 60-11 strings on your 6-string and you got the same sound.
I didnt read all the posts but im sure someone already pointed this out.

The question is are you gonna acually use all 7 strings... Ive seen kids with 7 strings that never played anything that needed a 7 string. I also think you have to approach the 7 string as a totally different intrument then a 6 string. Yhe sure their both guitars but a 7 string gives you much more expandability. If your gonna use a 7 string like korn does.. then use the 6 string and tune down.

I tend to use my 6-string more than my 7-string. But they both have their pro's and con's. I find it easier to play my 6 whereas the 7 offers more versatility (trying to learn 7-string sweeps is quite a challenge!). Anyway, if you can't make your mind up, just use both. That way, you'll have a diverse sound for your band.

I personally would use the 6-string, because I don't feel that I can utilize the added string. If I'd use the 7, I'd have it drop tuned (some of the stuff I play is dropped), and get 2 D-tunas for moving the high B string.

As far as I have seen, 7 string guitars are generally more common among shredders than metalheads. Which is quite "logical" as shredders are more about speed and sweeping and technical ability, while metalheads tend to go for brutality. (YES I KNOW I'M GENERALISING LIKE HELL HERE)

And about the korn stuff here, I'd say it'd be appropriate to point out to the fella that "we" don't consider KoRn to be metal, and then leave it. Really, that's not the point of this thread, is it?

ok first things first: stop being so goddamned close minded. he listens to korn and nirvana.. SO FUCKING WHAT??? let him listen to his trash. he came here FOR OUR HELP, not to get his balls bashed in. just remember, everyone has different musical tastes. i have a broadened musical taste (anything from black metal to classic rock, to good old rock n roll, very little punk, and a tad bit of nu-metal, from before 2000). so leave this poor kid alone!

ok, back to the topic: i think the 7 srting would fare better. why? because 1, it's a fucking ibanez.2, it has a double octave neck and an extra string. the epiphone is not only a peice of shit like all other epiphones, but it only has like what 21 maybe 22 frets?

if you want to play a six string song, ignore the 7th string. i playe a 7 string once. those things are BRUTAL. i love them. ibanez sure knows how to make a seven string guitar!

not only that, but ibanezes are known for there thin necks. the thin neck and the 24 frets allows for some nice soloing (unless you like the thicker necks), but yeah..

theres my 2 cents. i'm hungry..
