7-strings becoming hard to find?

Ive been looking at all the major guitar company sites & the only one that makes more than one 7-string if any is still Ibanez. This is fucked up because i will never go back to playing a 6-string as long as i live & i have a Ibanez 7-string that is not really much different than any other Ibanez 7-string. ESP only now makes the Carpenter signatures, Schecter makes a few but im not into them anymore at all since i had 2 of them & Jackson only makes the Christian Olde Wolbers signature that he doesnt deserve. I was on the B.C. Rich site looking for a V 7-string & its no where to be found, only the damn Warlock that i cant stand. I guess ebay is gonna be the only source for 7-strings companys made when they were popular or ill just have to have one made by a ESP or B.C. Rich custom shop & spend $4000 . I have a Ibanez & ESP 7-string & i wanted to add a B.C. Rich V or another ESP but it looks like im gonna have to pay out the ass for one, or buy a Ran V but they dont have the widow headstock! Only the pointy one!

Yeah I agree, Ive been looking around for a 7 string (as you may or may not know) and realised there really arent many options. BC Suck, Shecter 7 string necks look wide as fuck, Can't find any info / ordering info for Corts, Fender aren't what im looking for - - - where are my medium range options???

And on top of all that I live in Australia!

Probably got something to do with the nu metal fad not being as huge now as it was a few years ago. Not that I'm saying 7-strings are for nu-metal, I'm a 7-string player myself. I bet some of the guitar companies think that way.

you could check out the agile 7 string ( http://www.rondomusic.net/interceptor.html )
IMHO it's a steal considering the licensed floyd and the two dimarzio blaze pups that come by default.
I'm so pissed off because Rondo dosen't ship to Europe (or at least that's what they said 6months ago when I emailed them. )

Yeah definately, that's the same reasoning I got from most guitar stores. I've had a hell of a time trying to find a 7 string but still can't. One of my friend's has the "Nevermore" 7 string, though I don't know what model or brand it is sorry but I'm sure you could easily find it

I got a great Epi' LP 7-string for Ģ250, limited Ed, 24.75 neck but it's bloody lovely, nice, heavy body, sweet tone, chucked an EMG81-7 in the bridge sounds great! Bloody lucky find, check out all the guitar shops in your vicinty, I didn't know about mine for months! (mine is worth at least twice what I paid for it).
