    Alright, I sold my LP and now I have a little cash in my pocket. I've considered a Xiphos, and a S7420.. Ive wanted a Loomis FR for ages.

    I play shit like In Flames, Nevermore, Aeon, Unearth.. I have around 1K to spend.

    LoL thought so.

    IF THIS HELPS ANY:
    I hate the neck on my H307. It feels terrible.. I'm disguisted to even play on it. It just doesn't feel "right" at all. I believe its Neck Thru?

    If you don't like the H307, there's a chance you won't like the loomis. My friends LTD 7 string has the same exact neck contour and thickness as my schecter, but i'm told the loomis is thinner. I have not tried one of those myself.

    ah if you dont like ESP dont go Schecter then.

    RG1527 is best if you like thinner necks

    Its not the fact that the neck is too big.. a thinner neck wouldn't really matter.

    I'd say that because I prefer my LP's playability over my H307.. Im not sure what it is. I can't really explain it..

    Check the bay and you might be able to swag a UV777BK for around $800-$900.

    Carvin, far and away the best value for under $1000 IMO.

    I'll have to agree with the Carvin crowd, order a custom one from them :agreed:

    I really adore their guitars.
