    Hey folks,

    Name: Jean Claude

    City: Montreal,

    Location: Quebec, Canada

    Band: None at this time. I just picked up the 6th string accoustic guitar about 6 months ago and I've been practicing since then...pentatonic scales & modes.

    I've discovered Marcel Coenen last year and I have been a fan ever since. That kind of pushed my curiosity for the 7th String electric guitar and now I'm looking to buy my first 7th String. The only problem is I don't know what to buy...I heard the Ibanez RG7321 is a good 7th string guitar to start with. I was seriously thinking about buying that guitar and changing the pickups on it.

    Aside from that, I work both as a Security Guard and a Bellmen in a Hotel. Both of my jobs I work in downtown Montreal.

    Anyways, if somebody could help me with this It would be greatlly appreciated.

    Thanks for your time.

    Jean Claude :hbang:

    Hey welcome...wow the Canadian content is growing strong.
    Well I guess the first thing you should disclose is what kind of budget are you working with...

    Salut!

    Welcome on the board, fellow montrealer!

    Lots of people will tell you a 7321 is a good 7 to start with.
    There's also a lot of other options...
    For instance, i first bought a Squier stagemaster for 250$.
    I wanted to make sure i liked the 7.
    When i decided there was no way back, i stripped the paint, changed the pick-ups and electronics. Now, it's a very good guitar to beat up.
    There's a lot of good starter guitar out there : the Ibby's, Washburn, Schecter...

    For your interest :

    - I've seen Schecter 7 at Archambault + Steve's music.
    - Ibby's 7 are at Italmelodie.

    Go and give them a try!
    :)

    Well I'm willing to spend up to 1300$. I figured that I might as well spitt the cash on a good and high quality guitar since I will probably keep it for a very long time.

    I took a look at the 7th string jem from Ibanez...man I have to admit that this a great guitar. I saw Marcel Coenen rip off some riffs on it and it was beautyful man lol.

    I also contacted Bo-El guitars to see just for fun how it would cost me to have a Marcel Coenen 7th string guitar signature to be delivered here and pricewise it was near 2000$. Warranty for 5 years and shipping and handling all included.

    :lol: that's a lot of $ to spend for a guy that's been playing for 6 months.
    Though if spending that much isn't a problem, why not.
    Of course, you can always sell it back easily, in case you don't like it.

    LOl Yeah I know it's alot of cash but there is more than one option here. I can buy a nice guitar which I will probably keep all my life or I buy a good guitar price range in the 400-600 $ and buy some gizmos to have fun with..a floor pedal, a decent amp, effect processor etc.

    I'm still thinking about it.

    thanks! it's a regular RG7621BK that the original owner stripped down and clear-coated. for some reason, the guy couldn't find a buyer, and knocked the price down to $250. the instant i saw it, i emailed him :)

    You're still a frenchie and therefor an outcast :fawk: Just kidding, welcome to the forums. Montreal kicks ass. I'm from NB so I should know french since I was forced to take it for 10 years in school, but that didn't seem to work. It just made any trips I've made to Montreal a bit more comical though, trying to order shit at Subway and tell cabs where the fuck I want to go :lol:
