    So first off let me say I've never played a seven string before, use to never want to but now that I've gotten older I'm really interested in getting one. I play in a Deathcore band and am currently playing a Jackson JS32 dinky st tuned down to Drop A and an Epiphone LP standard tuned to drop C. A friend of mine suggested I should switch to 7's, so I was wondering what would be a great 7-string that's affordable and would be an easy transition for me!? I was also looking into a baritone 6, saw Jackson made one awhile back and was wondering it anyone knows anything about them. I really love Jackson guitars so any fore would help. Thanx :)

    For the money the ibanez rg7321 is a great guitar with a thin neck. The agile septors (set bridge) and interceptors (septor with a floyd) from rondo.com are really great too! I would rather have a agile over a lower end jackson personally.

    I recently got my first 7 string, and Ibanez RG7321 that was upgraded with seymour duncan blackouts and it is surprisingly good for the price (got it 2nd hand with the pups for $350AU). I would recommend it for a cheap but still reasonable starting point to test

    ESP LTD 7s are pretty cool too

    Price range is $300-$550. And so Ibanez would be the best rout to go!?
