So, I've been learning to play for a year now, and am looking to upgrade my guitar. How much more difficult is it to play a 7 string? and should I wait until I have more experience before getting one? I wouldn't be only playing drop tuned music, I like Korn and Deftones, but also like playing blues, and want to learn more about jazz. I am currently looking at either the RG652FX or the RGDIX7MPB Also if a guitar has a longer scale length (like the RGDIX7MPB) does using standard tuning affect it's playability and sound? Was thinking about whether tuning it to have two low E's sometimes would be an option?
