Hi there, Ive been watching this forum for several months now but this is my first post. As the title says Im about to get a 7-string but Im not sure if I should go with a floyd or not. Some background about me: Ive been playing on an Ibanez ART-320 for 4 years now and I just love the Tune-o-matic bridge on it but at the same time Ive always wanted a floyd. I stayed away from them because I was told they werent recommended on a low-end/mid-range guitar. Right now I have the opportunity to get a Apex 2 which has a TOM bridge and Im pretty sure it will be a great guitar to start in the 7-string world. Ive been eyeing on the ibanez RG927QMZ on the internet for quite some time but Im certainly not going to buy a guitar without testing it first and 7-string are nowhere to be found in music stores where I live I tried a 6-string ibby with the edge zero II bridge and from what I can tell it seems to be pretty stable with regards to tuning, but very stiff, so maybe the ZPS can mitigate the issues traditionally associated with floyds, even on a 7-string ? So, here is my question: shall I satisfy my GAS with that Apex ? If floyds on 7-string are not too much of a hassle I may be tempted to wait. Of course there are other things about that one, since its got dimarzios pups and not ibz pups, mahogany body vs basswood, but no quilted maple top, and no floyd. Also, shall I ask you in your answer to detail if you play on a fixed bridge or tremolo 7-string ? Thanks in advance for your input.
