    NGD - Blue Crackle Ormsby Metal V7

    Hey gents, I picked up this Ormsby metal V 7 string a few months back. This guitar rips! I'm super hyped on it. It sounded good right out of the box in B-standard but it was a little buzz-y due to the minimal truss rod tension during shipping. I had my guitar tech set it up to drop G and it...

    Ibanez RGA7 with EMG's for $500 - Worth it?

    Hey, I've been looking at some entry level 7 strings recently, because of some metal albums I really want to be able to play. Today I discovered an Ibanez RGA 7 with a set of EMG 81-7 and 85-7 pickups swapped in. Price converted to dollars is about $500 (keep in mind that used gear tends to be...

    My main problem with 7 string guitars..

    Don't get me wrong, I love my 7 string. But, due to its size, it makes 6 string guitars feel like a twig. After months of playing my 7, going back to a 6 just feels uncomfortable. Does anyone feel similar about this?

    What are your favorite 7 string guitar scales?

    I searched the forum but didn't find a poll with this question. My favorite 7 string guitar scale length is 27" and I use it for standard tuning. 30" is my second favorite scale and I used it for lower tunings such as A standard (A D G C F A D). I didn't include fan fret scales in this poll...

    I got a 7 string guitar, I want to drop lower than drop F. Pitch shifter good enough?

    Hello. Uber newbie in the forums here. Just wanted your opinions about Helix's polycapo feature. How good is it for you to actually consider not getting an extended range anymore? For context, I've got a Harley Benton Amarok 7 set to Drop A and I couldn't really ask for anything more with how...

    NGD: Solar A1.7FBR

    Hello everyone! So, long story short: I was considering getting back into the 7 string game but with a multiscale guitar... Since Solar does not make those I went for a Legator N7FP because it seemed nice for the price. It was a mistake. The guitar had poor QC (even had a QC Passed sticker by...

    Evertune Bridge String Spacing is too wide

    Hello! So I am a total newbie to Evertune bridges. I recently acquired an LTD EC-1007 ET. It's a wonderful guitar but it throws me off when playing it because the spacing is off between the A and D strings. How can I adjust the bridge where it aligns correctly? The nut itself is fine. Just the...

    GOTOH 510FX-7 fixed bridge

    So I noticed that Gotoh came out with this new 7 string fixed bridge, and it looks comparable to the hipshot fixed bridge. Has anyone on here tried it? Looks real clean. I haven't seen this 7 string version on any guitars. https://g-gotoh.com/product/510fx-7/?lang=en

    Hi everyone I have been very intrigued by the EMG Retro Active sets lately. Curiosity is starting to get the better of me and I'm thinking about ordering a set. I've watched many reviews, videos, etc. (based on what I've heard so far, I'm leaning towards the Hot 70-7 set a little bit), but I...

    Gotoh GE1996T-7, coming 2021

    Our prayers have been answered: Finally! I'm pretty excited, the GE1996T is my absolute go-to for any Floyd guitar. Here's hoping these continue the trend of a quality, inexpensive alternative to the German made variants (that are honestly better units overall).
