6 string vs 7 string

Do you prefer 6 or 7 string guitars?

spoke too soon, ha. 7. More options, easier time playing songs by bands in different tunings.

7's.

More harmonic options and larger sonic range without resorting to weird tunings.

6, but only tried a 7 once briefly.

a related question: those of you who have a 7-string for playing in B instead of a 6 tuned down to B, do you tune the G string down to F#, or do you just shift your fretting on that string by one fret? i would think tune the string down, but just curious.

I never change the tuning. You get used to shifting your finger down a fret after a while anyway. It usually makes things easier since it is a fret down instead of a fret up.

Never played a 7-string. If you can't play a 6-string worth a fuck what good is adding another string eh...

RIght now i only have one guitar and it is a 7 string. I think it makes you better when you play a 6 string and it sorta forces you to know your way around the fretboard more. 6 strings are more comfortable to play, I'll say that much.

i play 6 strings,

i owned a 7 string, and its not bad, but since most songs i play are al written on 6 strings i have no need for that extra B.

i might build a 7 in the future though
