7 String?

Oh god, why do I even ask? I know i'll probably go with an Ibanez 7. What are some other good brands that make 7 string guitars that aren't TOO high priced? Probably 700 is the max for me.

Oh fucking blow me, all right? Don't you have work tomorrow, Petty Officer?

I might shell out the money for a Jem. The price on that won't be pretty, though.

Yes, I must go soon because I do have to be there at 7:30, but I will be leaving early tomarrow to get back here and post whore my drunken self to death. I have a Ibanez 7 that I completely rebuilt with fiber optic lights for side dot inlays. I have a pic but its B&W and you can't realy see the blue lights. It's nice now that I've put $300 into it. Jackson made a 7 string RR once and I wish I could find one to see if they are worth playing.

Ibanez RG7620
Just pop in an Evolution in the bridge and Air Noton in the neck.

I have that setup.. fucking nice, neck fits my hand PERFECT, sounds great, the Edge Lo Pro kicks so much ass.

Just an all around good guitar.

Al together I paid about $400 for an extremely high quality guitar.

Bls, where can I find the 7620? Ibanez doesn't even have it on their site, but I do remember seeing it.

To be honest, I think my guitar teacher has the same one.

Update:

You do realize that you recommended a discontinued guitar, correct? I have to buy it used. But I'm assuming that it would still be a good deal if its in great condition.

i agree in full. i havnt gotten a chance to do so, but when i get the money im doing exactly what BLS did. even same pickups.

EDIT: my friends got one and hes selling it to me for $500 when i get the money. im getting screwed on the price, but its worth it cuz they're hard to find

Coincidence of the day!
I got home from some kind of school music thingy an hour ago, and one of the guys playing there had a Jackson 7 string RR w/ reversed head. I was going to ask here if it was a custom or something, but it seems someone saved me the trouble... Thanks!

Yeh.

Buying used is smart.

Last week their was several on ebay all for around $300. The stock pickups should do until you save up for better (it comes stock with custom dimarzio's.. but their kinda muddy) Whatever you do just stay away from the rg7420 its a pos, crappy pickups, horrible bridge.. just a cheap version of the rg7620.. and its not even that much cheaper.

I can guarentee you wont be dissapointed with the RG7620.

look at this page:
http://www.music123.com/Solid-Body-...ing-d2957.music

i'd say go for the washburn WG587! it seems cheap, but the price was slashed from 900$, and it got 4.5 stars from 25 customer reviews. you can also check other reviews on the net, like harmonycentral and stuff.

here are the brands and models of 7 string you can get:

Ibanez:
RG 7620 ,buy it if you can find it!
RG 7321
RG 1527 (it's about 670 on the music123 page, but you can most definitely find it cheaper), this is a current version of the rg7620.

Avoid K7 at all costs, it's just a dressed up version of the 1527, that's 600$ more expensive.

AX 7221 sucks, i've played it. the neck is not good for soloing at all, they even say it on the website. i'd say spend the extra 50 bucks on the 7321.

Schecter:
Omen
C7 blackjack
i have a review of the blackjack from a reputable magazine (Guitar Player), here it is:

"The C-7's wide neck will take some getting used to if you don't normally play a 7-string, but if you're looking for heavy low end, the B to E tuning delivers the goods. The bridge pickup tones are bright and balanced with plenty of midrange burnish, and the neck pickup's PAF-level output yields good clarity when riffing with a lot of distortion. But even if your'e not trying to summon Satan with gut-shaking grind, the 7-string format is ideal for anyone interested in extended range. The rumbling textures obtainable from this ax are amazing--especially with feedback--and the shimmering clang of the split-coil settings makes the C-7 alluring even when played through very clean amps."

Here are other brands, which i don't really know about, but you should check out:

BC Rich:
Platinum Warlock
Platinum Pro Warlock

Carvin:
DC727
DC747

Thanks for the site, Atif!

I would never touch a K7, even IF it were free. The fact that it is an over priced version of the 1527 with the KoRn name on it makes it one of the worst deals ever. I'll look through the site though.

oh, and I hate the Ibanez AX series. Not my style.

Update:

After looking at the site, I've narrowed it to two guitars:

The Ibanez 7321 and the Warlock Pro 7 String. I'll probably go with the 7321 because of its price and the fact that the Dimarzio will make it scream. I don't want to be another kid with an EMG packed Warlock.

If the K7 was free I would take it, sell it, and get another guitar.

I'll be honest, without that K7 at the 12th and the fact that its a Korn signature guitar, it would be one of the sexiest 7 strings i've come across. I like the colors.

The K7 inlay and the fact the thing is missing a few knobs. Also that dumb wammy bar too. But after that it is a good guitar I bet.

The K-7 is a fuckign RG7620 with the u-bar (easy mod), matching headstock(ugly colors) and some different dimarzios that sound shitty.

Oh and that awesome inlay!!

I also love the Schecter c-7 blackjack, has sustain for days.. looks sexy, and has me favorite pickup conig. JB AT BRIDGE JAZZ AT NECK = BUTT SEX WITH NO LUBE
