    While it's highly unlikely that a forum thread will change a business model, maybe if enough people repeat the same brand or model we can slowly convince some guitar manufacturers out there to release at least a short run of 7 stringers (don't hold your breath).

    I would love to see G&L release a 7 string Commanche and/or Asat.

    I wish Tom Anderson would consider making a 7 string with a Tele shape.

    A 7 string Dean Cadillac would have tons of cool factor.

    PRS should release a core 7 string (the SE model is great, but a U.S. made core would be a work of art).

    Who/what else should consider extended range guitarists?

    Do you need the tremolo?

    Otherwise there literally was a Custom 24-7 that really didn't work out too well (25 inch is really short for a seven), the successor SVN (especially since 2020) is fantastic and basically a custom 24 without the tremolo.

    Or are you talking about the Core models, as well? If so, you are correct. Without going Private Stock you won't get a core 7. I guess it's only a matter of time, though.

    Absolutely seconded.

    Second vote: would love a 7 string Baritone Ibanez SZ Prestige.

    I do not understand why PRS isn't offering a Core Custom 24 7. It seems like they'd make a killing.

    I guess they figure anyone super serious about it will put in a PS order, and they rather take in the PS than possibly shift folks over to a Core.

    I also think that PRS, the person, still sees them, 7 strings, as something of a gimmick.

    It took a lot of prodding for them to release the SE 7s, and even then they're mostly token offerings.

    I think there's a better chance of an S2 or CE model, something with artist support.

    7 string Fender Jazzmaster or Fender strat. I have a set of 7 string jazzmaster pickups I been waiting to use in a build. I also echo the sentiment of a Core custom 24

    I suspect the exact same thing and frankly I draws me away a little from the brand while I still enjoy the ones I already have.

    Another vote for a core PRS 7, provided its at least 25.5.

    Also, ESP H3. I’ve seen a few custom examples, but a regular production one without a bunch of odd custom choices would be nice.

    Yeah, I remember how long he fought against putting Floyds on their guitars. I'd be down with an S2 or CE 7 as well.
