    Custom deal for Mark himself.

    This was his first.

    And on tour, he used a modded SE 7-string. Probably the only time I've ever seen him use an SE AND a Custom 24 on stage.

    Boo no fair.

    I’d be really ticked if I didn’t know that tremonti actually CAN play. Creed really didn’t showcase his full skill.

    But yea, that guitar is total sex. The finish is amazing.

    When he was in Creed he wasn't really the guitarist he was today. After Creed broke up, he became friends with Michael Angel Batio and he started taking lessons from him. It's one of the big reasons why his playing between Weathered and One Day Remains was so drastically different.

    That's even more awesome. He already was a total rock star and dedicated himself to getting better. That's pretty cool.

    Right now he only uses it for one song. Show Me A Leader. He tunes it really fucking low, too. G# standard. Oddly he uses a 7-string down 1 1/2 steps, while Myles uses a 6-string tuned down 1/2 step to Eb.

    Dang..................... SUPER COOL!
    Looks like Dimarzio pickups (CL/LF or D-Sonic/???)
    Can't tell what was in his original USA PRS 7, but I'm interested to see what he's going for in pickups between the two USA instruments.

    Waiting for a production PRS 7 is the guitar world equivalent of waiting for Final Fantasy VII Remake, it's about time they just did it.

    That top is gorgeous, want!

    You sure that's not DROP G# on the 7? That'd fit perfectly with Myles using an Eb 6 string.....


    If it's really G#standard that is really weird to my brain.....lol

    No it's G# standard. Look at 3:05. He does barre chords on the lower strings.

    Plus I've played this song a few times on my 7-string. It definitely makes more sense to play it in standard rather than drop.

    yeah you should check out his playing in alter bridge. I'm trying to learn Ties that Bind right now and it's surprisingly hard for me

    It's interesting when you hear the song live. Mark's the one playing the main rhythm stuff, while Myles does the lead/background stuff excluding the actual guitar solo. When they play the chorus, Myles just plays the same chords as Mark, just an octave up.

    I saw him playing one of the SE 7 strings about a year ago when Alter Bridge came through Texas :metal: this new one fits his style a LOT better, so I hope he'll start playing it on the road too
