Hey!, Hello, Im J.P. from South America. I need your help. With much effort I get the money to buy a good seven strings (my first seven). Im thinking in get the Horizon FR 7, a new model for this year, is like the NT 7 but with floyd rose. I really like that guitar, but it have a 25.5 scale. Is it a bad thing? guitars like Schecter have a 26.5 scale length. I understand that the main factor is about the tension in the strings. I play mainly a whole step down, D to D. If choose the right gauge of strings for the 25.5 scale, Do you think that the strings will be loose? Please help me!. what scale do you preffer? You must know this: I only can pay with credit card, and the only shop that allows me to buy with credit card only import ESP guitars. In fact, the only possibilty for me is to buy the guitar that I mentioned, the horizon FR 7. Sorry for my english! Thank you!
