    03-08-1997. I remember because until recently I still had the original box it shipped in. It was the dark blue rg7520 (7620) and I got it as soon as they became available for order to me. Before that I spent a few years trying to get an originl Universe Steve Vai 7 string, but they were impossible to find and expensive. This was pre-internet times for the most part. I loved 7 string from the day I picked it up and didn't really care about owning 6's much after that.

    My first seven is a Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas style 2 (that’s a mouthful aye)
    Then I got a Kiesel AJ7E and I haven’t plugged another guitar in since getting the Kiesel. Amazballs

    Edit
    I got the Charvel in March then the Kiesel in August 2019. So relatively new to 7’s

    1st - Peavey Predator 7
    2nd - Ibanez RG7321

    Then, I gave up with 7s. I got a Digitech Drop. Any of my 6s can downtune now by semi-tones down to an octave.

    My first 7 was a Douglas from Rondo music, and man I hated that thing. I had no idea how to set up guitars then, but it just wouldn't stay in tune to save my life. Eventually I joined a band that made me use it, and all that misery prompted me to cave and get a Schecter Loomis model which I liked much more.

    But it all began with that awful, $150 Douglas.

    Same here. I was 18 or 19 and while I could feel the quality of every single part compared to anything else I had played, I definitely didn’t properly appreciate it. Never should have sold it.

    My first exposure to 7 strings was back in 2003/2004 thanks to Deftones
    First hands on was sometime in 2014, it was a Musicman JPX7
    Early 2016 I managed to get an ESP SRC7 from a member here (thanks !)
    Following year I traded the JPX7 for a Mayones Regius 7
    Shortly after that came LTD SC607 sunburst (sold)

    Now kinda in the look for a Regius Elements 7/Gothic Textures spec, and possibly Ibanez K7

    I think it was 2017: PRS SE-7

    I was doing the 6-string baritone thing for the longest time, but wasn't digging long scale lengths all that much, just a little too uncomfortable for me. I think it was in 2017 I picked up a used PRS SE-7, which is a 'shorter scale' 7-string (25") funny enough, would prefer it to be 25.5 but I got the guitar for a good price so I can't complain. I've since upgraded the pickups to Duncan Pegasus/Sentient and put on some locking tuners.
