Question 7 string

Now for quite a while I've been looking for a 7 string guitar. Ofcourse I like Ibanez and such, since I mostly play Progmetal. But then there's also the music man jp signature, but here in Denmark, where I live, guitars cost 3 times more or even more than that, than in America. For a long long time I've been searching the net for a place where it's possible to buy the jp signature, but all i've found is the 6 string. I don't know which guitar I'll end up with in the end, all I know is that a 7 string is what I'm looking for.

What guitar dya think would be the best for prog and such?
And does anyone knows where on the net I can find the jp sig 7 string? And If it would be safe to buy it over the net - My dad says it isn't, and in some way I agree, but knowing that guitars is so much more expensive here in denmark, makes me consider buying on the net...

(Sorry for my not so good english - Hope ya understand)

Check Ran Guitars out. They can custom build a 7 string for the price you might pay for a US guitar where you live. They are safe because I got a guitar from them online. They can make it anyway you want it.

I understand, but if I lived in Europe thats what I would save my money up for, because they are nice handmade guitars and will go up in value over time. They are a bitch to get into the US, but very worth the trouble for me. Just tell your dad that it is a investment that will gain value, like a savings account, except you can play it. Maybe he would understand or maybe not?

I hope you do find a good 7 string guitar, though. Good luck!

I got one, but it was just a POS very low end 7 string Ibanez G10. I payed $100 fot it at a pawn shop and completely rebuilt it. New 6100 fret job with leveling and polish, black MOP inlays, Blaze 7 pickups, quality electronics, reshaped headstock, nut, new finish on the neck, and bridge rebuild. It is worth at least $400-$500 now with all the upgrades. It even has blue LED side fretbourd markers now.

I played the Schecter C-7 Blackjack at guitar center, it was the only 7 string they had besides the JP model. Badass guitar for a fair price. It also has my pickups already installed (JB and Jazz)

The UV777 or RG7420. The RG7420 is custom made but I see them all the time in stores. Any Ibanez 7 string will do.

I own an Ibanez RG7 string, though when I removed the neck to find the model, there was 2 numbers, 7420 and 7621, so I dont know exactly what model my guitar is, it plays absolutly amazing, I would suggest to anyone who does ger a lower Ibanez 7, to change the pickups of it, I do quite like the sound of mine, but they could be so much better, I am thinking Dimarzio Evolutions for it, but its hard to get those in my town.... I dont really know how I was able to find the guitar in the forst place....
