    Hey, another Aussie member saying g'day. Been lurking here for some time and figured it's time to make an account. Currently I do not have a 7 string, my last ERG was a 8 String Agile 28" Scale Interceptor which I bought several years back and sold recently along with a stack of other gear.

    Just getting back into playing again and looking at getting a decent 7 string so figured I'd sign up here properly.

    You're not wrong there mate.

    When I started looking at 7s I was sure that a $500-$1000 (Aussie dollarydoos) 7 string would be fine. Then I started thinking, well, if I'm going to spend $1k, why not spend a bit extra and get something decent.

    Before you know it you're looking at $3k-$5k Mayones and customs. Oh, and may as well get that Axe FX II XL right? they never pop up second hand, so I should just get it new... it's quite a rabbit hole.

    I'm trying to take it easy though. Just browsing S7G, Ibanez, and FGN's for now.
