    Why do every company manufactures mostly black 7 strings? Im really sick of millions of these black wooden sticks. It feels like 7 string is only meant to be crap-death-core chug chug 3210 drop Q Instrument for soy crabcore kids.

    I'm sick of this, im really happy with my 6 string , however i have had really hard time finding non black 7.

    I have a Demon 7 in Red, previously have had Ibanez RG 7421 in Blue

    I known there are other colours but they do not appear often.
    Jackson comes with White, Amber, Black, Blue and Red
    Schecter, mostly Black, White, Red, new line is Purple and Blue
    Ibanez - Black, Black, Black, sometimes White, Green
    Esp - Black....all of them
    Charvel - White or Black

    Ibanez: Only 9 out of 20 Ibanez 7-strings are black, and that includes 4 signature models (artist choice of color).
    ESP: Only 12 out of 22 ESP/LTD 7-strings are black and that includes 4 trans-black models.

    Black (and white) sells the best.

    :agreed:

    I just went by the ones that were easiest to track on their websites. Both Jackson and Schecter make a butt-load of non-black 7s.

    I get where OP is coming from, though. A black guitar done well is cool. But too often it's just a generic black guitar with a poo colored FB. Sometimes chrome hardware, too. But, I will say that most people who don't hoard/whore guitars like us on here will get a black guitar because it goes with everything. Saying that there are too many black guitars would be like saying there are too many black cars. It's not until you start collecting exotics that you want an orange one and a purple one. But, I, for one, would love to see more color options.

    Maybe in USA you have more of these, especially the more affordable ones. I mainly have some sort of hate that 50% of affordable 7 string come in black . I wish i could affod prestige ibanez or high end jackon, schecter. Here in middle of Europe Epiphone, Fender and Ibanez is most popular.

    Nearly every 7-String comes in black AND another colour. I can count the ones that exclusively come in black on one hand.
    Ibanez has currently 14 7-Strings models online (not counting different colour options), out of those 5 come in black.

    Didn't bother with the other brands as I'm not too familiar with those but I assume you researched those just as badly.
    You should have been there ~15 years ago when almost any guitar was black, no matter the number of strings.

    that was one of the main reasons I changed into Ormsby, as they had a bright baby blue and a magenta 7 strings. Funny enough I end up buying a black body/black burst one hahah

    there are colors out there, jsut not so much in the main mayor brands. Kiesel can make you a bright orange sparkle with a purple burst if you want

    Every guitar ever made should be black.

    Haha, you and I are in opposite boats. I have many natural and trans finished guitars so when it was time to get a new 7, I opted for black and I love it. Best of luck to you!
