    :scream:Count the strings! Poor Chris has to feel neutered. I know I do every time I pick up a sixer that isn't tuned in some strange 5ths based tuning.

    I guess at least it isn't a Dean:lol:

    Why doesn't he just use his 7 in Megadeth? Not like it'll hurt anything.

    What a shame.

    Wow does that sixxer ever look small on him. So used to seeing him play 7s. They suit him better looks wise and play wise.

    I think i remember hearing somewhere that dave wanted him to play 6s so he could really dig into the low string for a heavier attack.

    though i believe its a direct result of dave mustaine being a bitch, in the end, i gotta agree. Doesnt fucking matter, cause he's not really using the extra range in the band, and if i were in megadeth, i'd want to keep dave off my back, too.

    I would've loved to hear some 7-string Megadeth. But this one picture doesn't necessarily mean Chris will never ever use a 7 in the future...

    I'm well aware that Chris does and will continue to use 7 strings in non Megadeth stuff, but he DID use the extended range for easier fingerings and soloing. I find that "digging ing" stuff to be a complete load of bull crap. I dig in on my low E just fine with the extra string. I can play old school Ride the Lightning era Metalica on an unboosted recto with the gain turned down, which requires A LOT more "digging in" than any Megadeth song at faster speeds, and Chris way way out plays me. I think it is just Dave trying to control every aspect of the band yet again. I think Chris had LACS put the giant band logo on the guitar just for a laugh knowing he probably won't use the guitar for much else.

    It's Dave's band, his way or :fawk:
    Maybe he felt Chris got more of the spotlight because of the 7 string?

    Maybe he felt Chris got more of the spotlight because he's a much, much better guitarist and not a whiny obnoxious cunt.

    If the man plays a sixer, let him play a sixer. There's nothing wrong about sixers and sex.
    But i think that it's just the hate towards the extended range instruments from Dave's side. If you hate any instrument you're not a musician. A seven doesn't sound that different from a sixer and that "digging in" thing is just bullshit. Someone's got a huge ego here and he's letting it out on the band members. Not very mature.

    I was hopeful for the band to move into that direction too:(
